Construction starts on two speculative logistics units totalling 350,000 sq ft at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Click here for full release

Councillor John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, today, 21st May, dug the first trench to commence construction of two speculative warehouse buildings at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, totalling 350,000 sq ft.

The £13m construction contract has been awarded to Readie Construction Ltd for the two units of 147,241 sq ft and 206,491 sq ft respectively on a 19-acre plot which will be ready for occupation in November this year and Jaynic is ready to talk to potential tenants.

The BREEAM excellent development has a 12.5 m clear height, 50m deep service yards, level access and dock loading together with ancillary offices. These units are the first to be constructed on the 114-acre park that has planning consent for 2m sq ft. www.suffolk-park.uk

Councillor Griffiths, said: “These two new units will help provide a range of opportunities both for existing local businesses looking to expand, and for businesses outside of the area wishing to relocate to West Suffolk. This will in turn help to create new jobs and new opportunities for our residents and continue to ensure that West Suffolk remains a great place both to live and to work.”

Ben Oughton, Development Director with Jaynic, comments: “This is a big day for us at Suffolk Park. Having just completed development of the infrastructure, we are now starting construction of the first two units on site giving potential occupiers the opportunity to move in at the end of this year. This means we are ahead of the game and believe we are the only scheme in this region that will have warehouses ready to occupy in 2018,” adds Oughton.

Paul Stephens MD of Readie Construction said: “We are extremely pleased to be undertaking the construction of the two new units at Suffolk Park and understand the significance of the scheme to our client Jaynic and the surrounding stakeholders. We look forward to delivering the project and engaging with the local community however and wherever possible”.

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells Chartered Surveyors, the Bury St Edmunds based retained agents for Suffolk Park, said: “We have already completed one significant deal at Suffolk Park with a large local company and another one just about to be announced, and these two new speculative units are the next step in its development. We now move onto the next stage of reaching out to the big logistics and other business occupiers seeking representation in the eastern region. These units will be ready for occupation by November 2018 and we are keen to speak to occupiers now about their requirements,” added Lloyd.

Global real estate advisors Savills in London are appointed alongside Hazells as letting agents for the scheme. 

The development is part of a multi-partner initiative with St Edmundsbury Borough Council and housebuilder Taylor Wimpey to support a range of new and existing businesses in the popular Bury St Edmunds area and to continue to create jobs and prosperity.

Ben Oughton, development director at Jaynic, said: “the opening of the main estate road, infrastructure services and landscaping brings Suffolk Park a step closer to creating a complete working environment for occupiers and, in addition to local company Treatt who will be building its new global HQ on the park’s enterprise zone, negotiations are progressing well with other companies. 

“The quality of the environment is very important to us. We believe that this investment will appeal to potential occupiers and their employees,” adds Oughton.

Councillor Griffiths, said: “I am delighted that St Edmundsbury has been able to support this key part of the development at Suffolk Park, a new road and landscaping which in time will serve both the expansion of existing successful local businesses, and help attract new ones to this wonderful part of West Suffolk. This will enable the creation of new jobs and new skills all of which will help both the economy and the prosperity of our local communities and help ensure that West Suffolk continues to be a success story for generations to come. It is great to hear that negotiations are progressing well with other companies and I look forward to more announcements over the weeks and months ahead.”

Jaynic and PGIM real estate partner to develop two logistics units totalling 350,000 sq ft at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Click here for full release

Construction of the first two warehouse buildings at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds is set to start at the beginning of May following the signing of a partnering agreement between the developer Jaynic and PGIM Real Estate acting on behalf of institutional investors.

A £13m contract has been awarded to Readie Construction Ltd for the two units of 147,241 sq ft and 206,491 sq ft respectively on a 19-acre plot which will be ready for occupation in November this year and could bring a jobs bonanza to Bury St Edmunds.

PGIM is providing the majority of the loan finance for the site acquisition and development. Forecast rental values are £5.95 per sq ft based on standard FRI lease.

The BREEAM excellent development has a 12.5 m clear height, 50m deep service yards, level access and dock loading together with ancillary offices.

Ben Oughton, Development Director with Jaynic, comments: “We are delighted to have partnered with PGIM Real Estate for this project. These units will form the only speculative development in this area currently being undertaken. It will provide much needed stock that can be delivered before the end of 2018 and setting the scheme apart from other development sites in the vicinity, where lead in and occupation lags by anywhere between 12 – 24 months,” adds Oughton.

John Griffiths, leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, said: “I am pleased to see that there is market confidence to invest in and build these units. Alongside Treatt which is expanding onto Suffolk Park, these two new units will help provide a range of opportunities both for existing local businesses looking to expand, and for businesses outside of the area wishing to relocate to West Suffolk. All of this will of course create new jobs and new opportunities for our residents and continue to ensure that West Suffolk remains a great place both to live and to work.”

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells Chartered Surveyors, the Bury St Edmunds based retained agents for Suffolk Park, said: “The speculative build of these two units is a truly significant investment into the local and regional commercial property market and underlines strong confidence in Bury St Edmunds as a place to do business. We are confident that with this forward thinking initiative by the developer and their funder, these units will help satisfy some of the underlying demand for logistic and warehouse space within the region.”

Global real estate advisors Savills in London are appointed alongside Hazells as letting agents for the scheme.

Treatt plc gains detailed planning permission for its new building on Suffolk Park

Click here for full release

Treatt plc has been granted detailed planning permission for its new 10-acre site on Jaynic’s Suffolk Park.

The Bury St Edmunds company, which makes and supplies ingredient solutions for the flavour, fragance and beverage market, will be bringing its current six separate sites under one purpose built roof on Suffolk Park – a £35 million investment. The contemporary design incorporates a curved glass frontage where state of the art laboratories will be showcased. The scheme also includes a light and spacious open plan, centralised, office space, manufacturing and warehousing facilities.

Daemmon Reeve, chief executive officer, said: “This is just the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Treatt. “Our results are showing substantial progress year on year and the new premises are an important plan for driving further growth. “They will enable greater collaboration and innovation as our scientists work even more closely with our customers and there will be many more efficiencies just by everyone being under the same roof and on the same site.”

Building work on the new facility will start this summer and will be ready to move into towards the end of next year. Mr Reeve added: “As one of the biggest employers in the area and a significant contributor to the region’s economy, the new site will also bring opportunities for new jobs and apprenticeships locally.” The new site will include sustainable travel encouraging staff to cycle to work with secure parking and shower facilities. There are also electric charging points and a car share scheme.Trees and woodland planting as well as landscaping with a sensory garden and barbecue area for staff are also included.

Treatt, which recently won the Business Weekly Awards ‘Business of the Year’ title, moved to Bury in the early 1970s and employs almost 200 people in the UK. Suffolk Park has Enterprise Zone status, secured by St Edmundsbury Borough Council and New Anglia LEP, offering business rates incentives. Cllr John Griffiths, leader of St Edmundsbury, said: “It has long been our ambition to create opportunities for local companies such as Treatt to expand and develop within West Suffolk, to create new employment and offer the chance for young people to learn new skills.”

St Edmundsbury borough council leader, John Griffiths, plants first tree at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds

Click here for full release

Today, Wednesday, 17th January 2018, Councillor John Griffiths, the leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council, planted an English Oak as the first tree in the £175,000 landscaping contract at the 114-acre business, distribution and manufacturing project at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds.

The planting which started this week is being undertaken in two phases. The first phase includes planting along the estate road boundaries including Rougham Tower Avenue and Lady Miriam Way, and will take eleven weeks up to the end of March.

The second phase of planting, along the estate’s main road, will follow in November and December 2018 giving each phase of planting the best opportunity to establish and thrive before the dry warmer months set in.

Councillor Griffiths, commented: “This tree is symbolic of the roots that we have planted over several years all with the purpose of attracting inward investment and business growth here in West Suffolk while protecting our environment. We have worked and invested to achieve the Eastern Relief Road, Suffolk Business Park and with it Enterprise Zone status which makes it an even more attractive proposition to expanding or relocating businesses. Now we are investing in securing a high quality environment which will help attract the right mix of businesses to safeguard the growth of our economy now and into the future. That in turn will help to achieve greater level of skills, pay and opportunities for young people as they leave education, creating greater wealth, prosperity and better living conditions for all of our local residents.”

The contract is being undertaken by Aspect Landscape to designs by Indigo Landscape Architects and will include 500 trees, 1.25 miles of hedge, 500 saplings and 22,000 route shrubs.

Zeb Hoffman of Indigo commenting on the first tree planting said: “the English Oak is the quintessential British tree which can live for a 1000 years or more growing 20-40 metres. While we enjoy oaks for their rugged beauty, they also provide a variety of resources for local birds insects and wildlife, supporting more life forms than any other native tree,” he adds.

Nic Rumsey, managing director of Jaynic, said: “The quality of the environment is very important to us. We believe that this investment will be appealing to potential occupiers and their employees.”

Jaynic has benefited from an innovative agreement with St Edmundsbury Borough Council who provided a £3m loan facility agreement towards the road infrastructure and landscaping.

Jaynic wins detailed consent for two major distribution units totalling 352,402 sq ft (32,739 sq m) at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Click here for full release

Building on the success of securing Treatt as an anchor occupier, and as part of a wider vision to provide a mix of high quality business space which appeals to cutting edge and innovative companies, developer Jaynic, has now secured detailed planning consent for two major distribution premises at its 114-acre Suffolk Park.

Jaynic intends to develop the two units, totalling 352,402 sq ft (32,739 SQ M) which it intends to develop speculatively as a show of confidence in the East Anglia distribution market and against the current lack of available supply of Grade A space in the market.

The reserved matters consent is for two units of 205,829 sq ft (19,122 SQ M) and 146,573 sq ft (13,617 SQ M)  respectively with 12.5 metre eaves heights, 50 metre-deep service yards, level access and dock loading together with ancillary offices.

Simon Wilson, Suffolk Park project director at Jaynic, says: “We have consulted in detail with St Edmundsbury Borough Council’s planning department to agree a scheme which will appeal to forward thinking warehousing businesses, who we anticipate will also help stimulate growth and create a range of jobs by using new technologies.

“Jaynic intends to develop the units speculatively to capture unsatisfied demand from occupiers wanting to lease large distribution space along the A14 corridor. This will enable us to have units ready for occupation in Quarter 3, 2018, comfortably ahead of anything comparable in the East of England Region,” he adds.

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council said: “This is the next step towards enabling the successful growth of our local businesses, as well as attracting new enterprises to West Suffolk and the Suffolk Business Park. We want to attract the mix and types of businesses who are innovative and contribute to growing skills and expertise across West Suffolk and with it levels of pay. This will create new opportunities for younger people as they leave education, and with it even greater wealth, prosperity and better living conditions for our local residents.” 

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells, local agents on the scheme, comments, “We believe that these units will prove very popular with occupiers who want to move quickly. There is approximately 3.5m sq ft (325,158 SQ M) of demand in the region, with Bury St Edmunds being in the centre of that region but with a historically low supply.”

Richard Sullivan, Savills’ national head of industrial and logistics, who are retained to seek occupiers on a national basis adds: “While strong levels of take-up will continue in core national markets, for an increasing number of occupiers, there is continued pressures to operate economically and efficiently which will result in a move towards regional locations with good transport links, a plentiful supply of labour and competitive operational costs. Bury St Edmunds fits all these criteria,” he comments.

“The supply of large, good quality industrial and distribution units in the UK is at an all-time low. The ability to deliver units of this size and specification into the region offers an excellent opportunity to attract new occupiers to Bury St Edmunds as demand from a wide-range of logistics operators remains at an all-time high.”

The development is part of a multi-partner initiative with St Edmundsbury Borough Council and housebuilder Taylor Wimpey to support a range of new and existing businesses in the popular Bury St Edmunds area and to continue to create jobs and prosperity. It is envisioned that the development will have a mix of businesses.

Suffolk Park is adjacent to the new Rougham Tower Avenue leading to Junction 45 of the A14. The infra-structure and landscaping contracts for Suffolk Park have been let and are under construction with completion due in the 1st Quarter of 2018.

The project includes a 36-acre Enterprise Zone where business rates savings of up to £55,000 per annum and is being developed in parallel with Taylor Wimpey’s adjacent 500-home Moreton Hall scheme.

Bury St Edmunds based Hazells Chartered Surveyors are local agents for the scheme and interested parties should contact either Jonathan Lloyd or Richard Pyatt on 01284 702626. Savills, Industrial and Logistics’ department in London has been instructed to advise on the Big Shed potential – Contact Richard Sullivan 0207 409 8125.

Jaynic invests in top quality landscape at Suffolk Park

Click here for full release

Jaynic, the developer of the 2m sq ft Suffolk Park scheme in Bury St Edmunds, attaches significant importance to the park’s natural environment and has awarded a £175,000 landscaping contract to Aspect Landscape which will start on site in January 2018.

Advised by landscape designers Indigo Landscape Architects, Aspect is going to landscape the border areas around the park to include 500 trees, 1.25 miles of hedge, 500 sapling trees and 22,000 root shrubs. 

Jackson Civils is currently building a 200m long and 30m wide landscape bund along the A14 to shield the park from this east-west trunk road.

Zeb Hoffman of Indigo says that the project is seeking to establish the landscape infrastructure for the long-term development of the park with an attractive landscape along the estate roads together with woodland buffers in wildlife corridors along the outer edge of the estate. Occupiers, who will be responsible for their own landscaping, will be guided by a landscape strategy document to help create a consistent appearance throughout the park.

He adds: “We are primarily using native plants that provide habitat and foraging for local wildlife.  This includes 30m landscape buffers that will ultimately develop into woodland belts, sheltering the park and creating connectivity routes for wildlife to move around the countryside.

Installations will also include bat and bird boxes as well as reptile hibernacula, 2m round mounds of earth, stones and branches that provide winter hibernation sites for reptiles.

The substantial landscape buffers will also provide routes for hedgehogs and badgers so that they don’t have to cross major roads.

Jaynic has benefited from an innovative agreement with St Edmundsbury Borough Council who provided a £3m loan facility agreement towards the road infrastructure and landscaping.

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council said: “By providing a higher quality environment, West Suffolk can attract the inward investment and the right mix of businesses to safeguard the growth of our economy both now and into the future. We are keen, and are acting, to help deliver a greater level of skills, pay and opportunities for young people as they leave education, in turn enabling greater wealth, prosperity and better living conditions for all of our residents.”

In recognition of the site’s historic links with the World War 2 Rougham Airfield there will be two information boards installed along the site’s cycleways for viewing by members of the public. The information boards were designed in close coordination with Rougham Control Tower Aviation Museum to raise awareness of the site’s historic significance.  Stainless steel markers will also be installed throughout the park marking where the historic airfield runways crossed today’s roads.

Jaynic Project Director Simon Wilson said: “We are delighted to have Jacksons on board. They are regionally based but part of a national group and we chose them because they are very professional and totally understand infrastructure.

“Jaynic’s proactive approach to constructing the spine road so soon after the link to the A14 has been completed brings key infrastructure and servicing into the wider 114-acre site enabling early development of the whole site for a range of uses from 2,000 sq ft to 750,000 sq ft far faster than competing sites in the Region,” he added.

Jaynic has benefited from an innovative agreement with St Edmundsbury Borough Council who provided a £3m loan facility agreement towards the infrastructure.

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury said: “This loan by the Council has helped enable Jaynic to bring forward these vital infrastructure improvements, and are part of our commitment to remove barriers to jobs growth, and bring forward land and services for our existing firms here, as well as attracting new business to the area. We are keen, and are acting, to help deliver a greater level of skills, pay and opportunities for young people as they leave education, in turn enabling greater wealth, prosperity and better living conditions for all of our local residents.”

Jaynic seeks reserved matters consent for two major distribution units totalling 350,00 sq ft at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Click here for full release

Developer Jaynic, as a major show of confidence in the Bury St Edmunds industrial and logistics property market, is seeking detailed planning consent for two major distribution sheds totalling 350,000 sq ft at its 114-acre Suffolk Park scheme.

The development is part of a multi-partner initiative to support a range of new and existing businesses in the popular Bury St Edmunds area and to continue to create jobs and prosperity. It is envisioned that the development will have a mix of businesses.

The reserved matters application submitted to St Edmundsbury Borough Council is for one unit of 205,000 sq ft and one of 150,000 sq ft. Jaynic plans to develop them speculatively to capture unsatisfied demand from occupiers seeking to lease large distribution space along the A14 corridor.

Simon Wilson Suffolk Park project director at Jaynic says “We are aiming for a decision by Autumn 2017. A positive outcome would enable us to have units ready for occupation in Quarter 3, 2018, comfortably ahead of anything comparable in the East of England Region.”

Richard Sullivan, Savills’ national head of industrial and logistics adds: “The supply of large, good quality industrial and distribution units in the UK is at an all-time low. The ability to deliver units of this size and specification into the region offers an excellent opportunity to attract new occupiers to Bury St Edmunds as demand from a wide-range of logistics operators remains at an all-time high.”

Jonathan Lloyd of Hazells, local agents on the scheme, comments, “there is strong de-mand for business and distribution space in Bury St Edmunds and these two units would come at a time where there is very little currently available in the region.”  

Suffolk Park is adjacent to the new Eastern Relief Road leading to Junction 45 of the A14 which can accommodate up to 2 m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial space. Also, it provides a unique opportunity for a “regional hub” single distribution warehouse of up to 750,000 sq ft.

Earlier this year St Edmundsbury Borough Council granted Jaynic, as development pro-moter, outline consent for B1 (office, research & development and light industrial) and B8 (warehousing, storage and distribution) development for the whole 114-acre site. The park includes Enterprise Zone status on 35 acres. 

A 10-acre site has already been presold to Treatt – a leading beverage ingredients manu-facturer for a new 200,000 sq ft global headquarters facility to be constructed within the Enterprise Zone. 

Jaynic is finalising a construction contract for the infrastructure works with the intention that the main estate road between the Eastern Relief Road and Lady Miriam Way and associated infrastructure works will be completed by the end of this year.

Bury St Edmunds based Hazells Chartered Surveyors are local agents for the scheme and interested parties should contact either Jonathan Lloyd or Richard Pyatt on 01284 702626. Savills, Industrial and Logistics’ department in London has been instructed to advise on the Big Shed potential – Contact Richard Sullivan 0207 409 8125.

The project is being developed in parallel with Taylor Wimpey’s 500-home Moreton Hall scheme.

St Edmundsbury council signs loan facility for infra-structure costs at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds

Click here for full release

Plans to help boost the local economy and jobs has taken a major step forward thanks to an innovative agreement between Jaynic Suffolk Park Limited and St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

The Council has signed a £3 million loan facility agreement with the promoter of the 114-acre Suffolk Park commercial scheme in Bury St Edmunds adjacent to Junction 45 of the A14. 

This enables Jaynic to borrow up to £3m towards infra-structure costs to make sure facilities are in place to attract business and help create jobs in the area.

Jaynic can use the loan facility for up to two years, repayable in full, towards the main estate road together with two spur roads, drainage, distribution of mains services, internet provision and landscaping.

The loan agreement is part of the joint public and private sector initiative to boost the local economy and maintain St Edmundsbury as a successfully growing area that supports current and new companies.

Simon Wilson, project director of Jaynic, says: “We are delighted to have the continued support of St Edmundsbury Borough Council in this. The loan facility together with the monies realised from selling 10 acres to Treatt PLC, means that the infrastructure for the whole site, covering the current and all future phases is now fully funded.”

“With the infra-structure in place we can provide fast track occupation for companies planning to move to Suffolk Park that will benefit the whole Bury St Edmunds economy,” adds Wilson. 

Cllr John Griffiths, Leader of St Edmundsbury Borough Council said: “This further emphasises our commitment to bringing economic growth to  west Suffolk, removing the barriers so that existing businesses can expand and succeed, as well as attracting new ones to the local area. We invested in the Eastern Relief Road which has opened up the employment land on Suffolk Park and the wider Suffolk Business Park. We also worked with New Anglia LEP to establish the site as part of its Space to Innovate Enterprise Zone

“All of this will lead to thousands of new jobs, the development of new skills, expertise and opportunities, particularly for younger people as they leave education. That in turn will lead to greater wealth and prosperity which brings better living conditions for all our residents.” 

The development masterplan, which received outline planning consent in April, provides for up to 2m sq ft of business, distribution and industrial space at Suffolk Park and includes a potential 750,000 sq ft ‘big box’ distribution warehouse on the east side of the site.

Enterprise Zone status on 14 hectares of Suffolk Park, which was secured by New Anglia LEP and St Edmundsbury Borough Council, means that any qualifying company taking new accommodation within the zone will be eligible for relief of up to £55,000 pa against the rates payable for five years amounting to a saving of £275,000 over that period.

Bury St Edmunds based Hazells Chartered Surveyors are local agents for the scheme and interested parties should contact either Jonathan Lloyd or Richard Pyatt on 01284 702626. Savills London’s logistics department are working alongside Hazells on the potential logistics development.
