Capital & Centric announces plans for Wirral industrial

The Manchester-based developer has submitted a planning application for its latest scheme, a six-unit industrial park in Birkenhead.

The 20,000 sq ft park will target occupiers who work in the renewable energy supply chain. Capital & Centric is currently in the process of buying the site, which is on the left of the entry to the Birkenhead tunnel off the A41, from Wirral Council.

SixTwo Architects designed the scheme and also prepared the planning application.

The units will be built speculatively, and Capital & Centric said the scheme would be eligible for a grant from the Regional Growth Fund. The overall value of the scheme is £1.5m.

Once planning permission is granted, the development is due to start on site in September.

Adam Higgins, director and co-founder of Capital & Centric said: "Our interest was sparked in Birkenhead due to Capital & Centric's experience in delivering employment generating projects with high quality design and energy efficiency at their heart.

"The six units we're making available to the market are aimed at the renewables supply chain and are set along a tree-lined boulevard arranged around a courtyard. The design of the units provide industrial working space with an office frontage which is welcoming for visitors. Like all our new build schemes, the units will be built to BREEAM 'Excellent' standards and is set to create around 75 jobs in the local area."

The agents on the project are B8 Real Estate and CBRE.
