Portobello Trade Park

Client Name: Kennedy Services
Location: Birtley
Budget: £7 million
Project Details:

The transformation of 6.5 acres of brownfield site next to the A1(M) at Birtley into 15 light industrial units, specifically for SME’s.

The scheme, designed for Ravensworth Property Developments LLP by InArchitecture, now provides 100,000 sq ft of prime light industrial/warehousing space  in  response to the lack of high quality stock available for new and expanding SME’s.

As mechanical and electrical engineers and sustainability consultants on the scheme Avoca worked alongside the main contractor Robertson Construction and mechanical and electrical contractor Kennedy Services.

Avoca’s  dual role providing both detailed design services and BREEAM assessor made the process much simpler and seamless for all concerned - with the particular focus on achieving BREEAM Excellent standard for sustainable development.
