News: Jarvis and Womack move to Manvers


Jarvis and Womack has taken space at Brookfields Park in Manvers as part of a surge in industrial uptake in recent months.

The commercial roofing contractors, currently based in Swinton, has bought 7,500 sq ft at Brookfield Light, part of the scheme from St Paul's Developments that is already home to NEXT, Garnett Dickinson and Maplin.

Jarvis and Womack was established in 1870 and based at a yard in James Street, Rotherham. They specialise in commercial and heritage projects and is an approved roofing contractor to English Heritage, completing work on churches, town halls and other heritage buildings. They recently worked on the re-roofing of Hamby's, a Grade 2 Listed department store in Rotherham town centre.

The company is the latest to move into the Dearne Valley, witnessed by commercial property experts Knight Frank.

Mobile sanitary specialists Thetford have taken a pre-let of 83,000 sq ft at Brookfields Park. At Farfield Park, Knight Frank has let 52,000 sq ft to Gala Tent on a five-year lease, while a terrace of four 6,000 sq ft units have all been let at Paragon Point. Solaglas acquired Building 37 at Brookfields which they have recently moved into, retrofitting the property to provide a mixture of office and warehouse accommodation for a call centre and distribution use.

Rebecca Schofield, associate at the Sheffield office of Knight Frank, said: "The Dearne Valley area saw significant investment during the late 1990s and early 2000s from both owner occupiers and syndicated investors as a result of the EZ status at the time.

"As the market declined we saw an increase of availability of units from all sizes, from 2,000 sq ft upwards. But the Dearne Valley area also benefits from access to both the M1 motorway at Junction 36, and the A1(M) and a combination of this, strong labour links and the high specification buildings on offer is helping to generate increased interest and uptake."
