FHP has completed work for developer Priority Space for a £2.7m development at a new Darlington industrial estate and business park for SMEs.

As well as acting as design and client technicial advisor for the project, we provided building services including energy strategy, mechanical and electrical, sustanability design work, and technical advice to Priority Space, who have developed the 12 new business units at Evolution Park, Barrington Way in Darlington.

This is part of a construction initiative to transform the 1.4 acres of vacant development land into a range of different sized units designed to accommodate SMEs looking to set up or expand their manufacturing or distribution businesses.

This contract is the latest success for FHP as we continue to grow our portfolio of nationwide work and target revenues in excess of £3.5m in turnover by the end of the year.

James Taylor, director of FHP's Leeds office, commented: "This is the latest success for us as we continue to partner with Priority Space, supporting their ambitious growth and national development plans. We look forward to further success next year and expanding beyond the region on the back of a strong pipeline of work."

Adam Richardson, director of Priority Space, added "Our commitment to investing £3m to develop new industrial units represents a major milestone for us in North East England.

Working alongside our construction team, the FHP team are a key ingredient in creating high quality industrial developments that meet the highest design and build standards."
