Lodge Park Business Centre Expansion Underway
To tackle the shortage of serviced office facilities in Colchester, Lodge Park Business Centre is embarking on an impressive expansion of its popular business centre. Rose Builders Ltd have been awarded the construction contract and have now started work on the first new building of the planned expansion.
This additional building will deliver a further 42 serviced desks while a second building planned to follow will bring a further 64 desks to the market making Lodge Park Business Centre one of the biggest in the borough. A planning application is currently under consideration by Colchester Borough Council for further office accommodation.
The new building under construction has been specifically designed to attract professional services organisations ranging in size from 1 to 4 people while the second will target slightly larger organisations of up to 12 people.
Since its acquisition three years ago, Lodge Park Business Centre has undergone a major transformation to create one of the most prestigious business centres in Colchester. Commenting on the planned facilities, Joshua Warren, Managing Director of Lodge Park Business Centre said: “We are delighted to bring more serviced office space to Colchester’s start-up and entrepreneurial community. Colchester is rapidly growing and hence it is important that it has a range of offices to meet all needs particularly high-quality serviced offices for the smaller organisations.”
“Since purchasing Lodge Park in 2016, we have been successful at establishing our business centre as the location for Colchester’s professional services firms. They appreciate the high-quality environment that we have created, the easy access to the A12 and A120 and the ample parking available for tenants and visitors as well as all the other all-inclusive services we offer.”
Andy Ledgerton of Rose Builders said: “We are delighted to have commenced work on site at Lodge Park Business Centre transforming this disused warehouse into what will be A grade state-of-the-art office facilities. We are taking great care to minimise disruption in what is a very busy office park so as to ensure no inconvenience to its tenants.”
Scheduled for completion in May 2020, Lodge Park Business Centre is being advertised locally and through Fenn Wright incorporating Newman Commercial.
