Kingmoor Park Modular Village

Carlisle modular office park takes shape

The first four containers have arrived at the 18,000 sq ft ModVillage due to open within Kingmoor Business Park in the spring.

Once complete the project at Kingmoor Business Park will be made up of 50 containers housing 36 offices aimed at start-up businesses.

Galloway Modular Construction is converting and supplying the containers. Occupiers have a choice between a single or double container measuring 275 sq ft and 550 sq ft respectively.

Kingmoor is in advanced talks with a number of prospective occupiers and announcements are expected imminently.

Planning permission was granted for the Revolution Architecture-designed project in April 2019.

Neil McIntyre, managing director of Kingmoor Park, said: “We can now share with enquirers what can be achieved with the containers. We have an example on site that is fully kitted out and are in the process of showing lots of people around.

“People are surprised by the amount of office space a container gives. They are also energy efficient and affordable which adds to the attraction.”

Prospus Property is the agent for the scheme. The business park’s owner, Kingmoor Park Properties, is controlled by Swinton Insurance heir Brian Scowcroft.
