Following confirmation of Northern Trust’s successful planning application to build up to 400 homes on the southern part of their West Chirton (South) Industrial Estate, the company has announced that it also plans to complete a major refurbishment of its industrial premises situated on the northern part of the site, adjacent to Tesco’s.
The estate is a former munitions building built in 1940 and now totals circa 70,000 sq ft. 25,000 sq ft of accommodation is to be subdivided into 5 separate units. The circa £1m investment into the estate will see the subdivided units benefit from a new roof, external cladding, loading / personnel doors and utility services together with full redecoration.
Two other blocks of units ranging from 580 sq ft up to 1,695 sq ft and totalling 20,169 sq ft will also benefit from a similar facelift to vastly improve the industrial offering in the area.
