- August 18, 2021

G F Tomlinson is progressing with the construction of a light manufacturing facility at Oakham Business Park in Mansfield.

The £10 million scheme will have a new single-storey facility and basement space for a UK leading multi-sector manufacturer based in the East Midlands. The 80,000 sq ft facility which is set for completion in early 2022 will comprise of a ground floor workshop and office space, including staff facilities, along with basement level storage.

The building will have composite insulation panels in the walls and roof, and adjacent will be an external service yard with two arctic lorry loading bays, as well as car parking spaces over three levels for 139 cars.

Andy Sewards, Managing Director of G F Tomlinson, said: “Mansfield continues to attract major players in the industrial and manufacturing sector, and we are pleased to be working with a new client on a scheme of such scale.

“This facility will provide sizable and contemporary manufacturing and office space and the new building has been designed for the future expansion of our client’s production capabilities.

“We are proud to be working with Jackson Design Associates and Webb Gray Architects again to deliver this impressive scheme.”

G F Tomlinson is working in partnership with project manager and principal designer Jackson Design Associates and Webb Gray Architects, with both firms the contractor has worked with previously on office and industrial projects in Mansfield and Lichfield.

G F Tomlinson will also be carrying out £3 million M&E works as part of the project.

David Grieves, Project Manager at Jackson Design Associates, said: “We first discussed the project with the client towards the end of 2018. It’s fantastic to now see the project taking shape so quickly, particularly given the challenges we have all endured over the last 18 months. The team have had to overcome many hurdles, Covid-19 being just one, to get us here today.

“The development is a great example of local businesses coming together to deliver a project which will enable a valued client to expand and grow. The expansion of this facility increases the client’s capabilities in the market and provides job opportunities to benefit the community.

“G F Tomlinson has done a remarkable job in managing the risk of Covid-19 and continue to adopt the precautions required to ensure a safe and controlled site is maintained. Whilst controlling the Health & Safety aspect, the project continues to progress safely, at speed and in a professional manner.”
