Woodlands Enterprise Centre, South Molton

Description of the works

The works comprised the design of 7 new units constructed at Woodlands Enterprise Centre with five 1,000 square feet units and two 2,000 square feet units.  All units are fully serviced industrial units including a full range of services and toilet/wash facilities.

In addition a business support unit has been constructed which has a shared ground floor reception area, site administration facility and a kitchenette and a ground floor business resource centre with ICT provision and a multipurpose training/conference/meeting facility. The development has been sustainably designed which should, dependant upon use, result in reduced revenue costs (water usage and heating etc). The buildings are super insulated, timber framed and clad, plus all finishes are "eco" friendly.

The aim of this project was to provide the opportunity and facilities for new or fledging businesses to establish themselves in high quality supported workspace units at an affordable rent. This was to create an environment which fosters business innovation and entrepreneurial development.
