Hawke Ridge Business Park set to redefine standards in commercial property

By Anita Jaynes on 7 October, 2015

With the UK’s economy continuing to show impressive resurgence, the Bath and West Wiltshire area is set to capitalise with work now under way to deliver a new £50 million business park at a key strategic location in the region.

Hawke Ridge Business Park will raise the bar in commercial property standards as Bath based developers HPH Ltd commit to taking a fresh, occupier focused approach to delivering the 35-acre enterprise hub at the heart of the A350 corridor.

Ground works have begun on the new business park between Trowbridge and Westbury which will benefit from excellent access to key north-south and east-west road routes, as well as mainline rail services. Hawke Ridge Business Park will also incorporate the very latest in high speed fibre optic broadband connectivity.

Unlike other new commercial developments in the region which offer availability without any form of commitment, HPH Ltd has begun delivery of the park, representing an initial £2 million investment in the local economy on the part of the developer, as the first phase of a £50 million scheme.

Hawke Ridge Business Park will deliver tailor-made units which can accommodate a range of businesses in contemporary, energy efficient commercial space. With the flexibility to deliver up to a quarter of a million square feet in a single unit, Hawke Ridge is one of very few sites currently being delivered in Southern England that can accommodate a major national relocation or international relocation for a large space user. Companies recognise they can relocate to Wiltshire whilst they and their staff can benefit from being able to live in and visit the world heritage city of Bath.

Based in Kingsmead Square, Bath, family-owned developers HPH Ltd have an enviable reputation across the region for their occupier focussed approach to commercial property. This will continue at Hawke Ridge with HPH Ltd seeking to work closely with occupiers to build bespoke accommodation tailored to the needs of the business.

Commenting on HPH’s unique approach, managing director, Lindsay Holdoway said: “Our commitment is to provide new commercial space which meets the latest standards expected from the more demanding of occupiers, delivering the very latest levels of practicality, flexibility and efficiency. Our new business park at Hawke Ridge, is a case in point, where we will be delivering environmentally sustainable, efficient space, designed to meet the needs of our occupiers enabling their businesses to succeed and grow. We see ourselves as more than just a commercial property provider, rather a facilitator of enterprise. It’s a two way process, by understanding and responding to an occupier’s needs we can develop a property strategy which is co-ordinated with their business plan adding value to their business.”

With construction work now under way, interested parties are now contacting HPH Ltd to take full advantage of the opportunity to have input on the design of their accommodation to meet the current and projected needs of their business.
