SPIE UK has begun work at Arlington’s Gloucester Business Park, for a building services contract worth close to £2.5 million.

Arlington is a specialist property company owning, developing and managing business parks across the UK. SPIE provide early stage concepts and budgets to help the Arlington team to secure an end user.

Due to be completed in spring 2018, SPIE’s responsibilities on the project include the design and install of incoming services to the building, temperature controlling facilities, internal and external lighting and automatic controls. SPIE will then move on to be retained as the installation contractor to ensure an efficient and seamless facility.

SPIE’s Building Services team in the Midlands, Wales and West region has been working successfully with Arlington for many years. Working alongside Arlington’s principal contractor, Winvic, SPIE’s delivery team will coordinate the design, installation and commissioning and ensure a smooth handover and transition for the end user.

 

Occupier and facilities

Due to be completed in the spring of 2018, the new building will be occupied by TBS Engineering, who provide machinery to the battery industry. It comprises 1,860sq.m of offices and 7,400sq.m of high-bay production space, with associated parking, yard, external works and landscaping. The two storey offices include a reception area, meeting rooms and boardroom, open-plan and closed office areas, food hub area, toilets and shower rooms. 

The park, which was officially opened in September 2000, is now home to over 72 companies including Direct Wines, Horizon Nuclear Power, Ageas, NHS Gloucestershire, GTEM and BAE.
