Work is well under way on the start of the latest £4m extension to a major business park on the Fylde.

Henco has welcomed contractors on to the Whitehills Business Park to prepare the ground for two major developments.

East Lancashire-based contractor Barnfield Construction Limited, has announced it has begun construction of 37,000sqft of offices and 15,000 sq ft of business units for the park’s owners Henco International Limited.

Preparation of the site has now commenced to allow for the construction of two office buildings on a 2.5 acre plot at Whitehills Business Park.

Building one is a four-storey 27,000 sq ft building which has been pre let to Stockbrokers and Investment Managers, Hargreave Hale, which already has a presence on the park. Building two, Apollo House is being developed speculatively and will provide high specification suites up to 10,000 sq ft available to let.

Chris Hibbert, managing director at Henco said “Our latest development is a continuation of Olympic Court and Apollo Court, which are now 90 per cent let. The high quality accommodation along with central Fylde location being only a quarter of a mile from junction four of the M55 is a big draw to many businesses.”

The buildings are expected to be ready for occupation in June 2016.
