News: New £4.2m AMP building already 50% let


Much needed new office and workshop space on the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) in Rotherham is ready for new and innovative companies as building and civil engineering company, Britcon completes a £4.2m construction project.

The AMP is the UK's premier advanced manufacturing technology park. Businesses on the park already provide world-class technology solutions for use in precision industries.

Landowners, The Homes & Communities Agency (HCA), which took on the assets from Yorkshire Forward, contracted Scunthorpe-based Britcon last year to build the next phase of development at the AMP Technology Centre - the park's incubation space that is home to companies such as Fripp Design, Bromley Technologies, nCode, Iceotope and Eadon Consulting.

Working alongside AHR Architects and WYG Engineers, Britcon has delivered a 32,291 sq ft facility with a BREEAM "Very Good" rating which includes five split level workshops with shared office space.


Providing grow on space for advanced manufacturing and engineering businesses, complementing the AMP Technology Centre, operators Creative Space Management has seen strong demand for the building which was 50% pre-let.

The building is located within an Enterprise Zone which provides business rate relief and has been marketed by LSH.

Ian Chapman, regional manager at Britcon said: "We are delighted to complete this major contract through our Yorkshire office. Our combined design and build capabilities and sector track record has successfully delivered a one stop solution for the HCA."

The AMP Technology Centre was officially opened by three-time Formula 1 World Champion, Sir Jackie Stewart in 2006. It has been designed to accommodate a range of manufacturing-related activities, from fledgling engineering and technology companies, to University spin-offs and subsidiaries of established companies.

Occupancy is constantly close to 100% and expanding companies do not want to locate away as they collaborate with other companies on the AMP but the next sized unit available on the park is 11,000 sq ft.

Companies hoping to expand or move to the AMP are involved in a wide range of advanced manufacturing areas including carbon capture technology development, navigation systems for use underwater to aid divers, sports design and manufacture, medical device development, server cooling systems, specialised seals and composite hi-fi speakers.
