Experts at Focus Consultants are
playing a key role in a £2m development to build 19 new industrial units, which
have scope to create or safeguard almost 300 jobs in coming years.
The company is providing a number of services for the North
Kesteven District Council Blackwood Court development on North Hykeham’s Teal
Park in Lincolnshire, including support project management, employer’s agent,
principal designer/CDM advisor and BREEAM assessor.
Lindum Construction is building the scheme for North
Kesteven District Council, which is part of the council’s commitment to
attracting and supporting start-up businesses. The units will range in size
from 500 sq ft to 2,000 sq ft and will be used for a wide range of uses from
storage and distribution to general industrial premises.
Trevor Newton, partner at the Boston office of Focus, said:
“Focus Consultants is very pleased to have been appointed by North Kesteven
District Council to be a member of the team building Teal Park, which should
prove very important to the economic development of the area.
“As a company, we provide a number of different services
that are relevant for such developments, and professionals from both our
Lincolnshire offices and our Leicester office are involved with this scheme.”
The units are due to be completed by mid-February, with
lettings likely to start around the New Year.
Focus, which is based at Phoenix Business Park, Nottingham,
and has offices at Boston and Aubourn in Lincolnshire, and in Leicester and at
Holborn in London, offers services to the property and construction industry,
including building surveying, contract administration, party wall surveying,
clerk of works, quantity surveying, project management, CDM services and BREEAM
assessments and energy calculations and modelling. 
The company also specialises in funding and economic
development including area regeneration strategies, funding applications,
economic impact appraisals, business plans, and research and evaluation. 
Since 1994 Focus has secured for clients more than £953 million of grants for
projects and businesses across the UK and delivered more than £1.3 billion
worth of projects and programmes – making it one of the most successful
businesses of its kind in the country.
Teal Park is a strategic allocated employment site, granted
outline planning permission in 2011 for a total of 133,720m2 of employment
floor space, a hotel, public house, leisure and trade showrooms. It is home to
Siemens’ industrial gas turbine service business which occupies around a third
of the space.
Under the GrowLN6 project, the wider LN6 area is a focus for
coordinated partnership work by NKDC, City of Lincoln Council and the County
Council to attract new inward business investment and expansion.
