DSD Construction has moved into a 9,000 sq ft facility at Kingmoor Park in Carlisle, after constructing the offices and road connecting the plot to the wider business park.
The £1.5m headquarters is made up of an office block and training suite totalling 6,570 sq ft and a garage of 2,500 sq ft, to be used to maintain DSD’s fleet of plant, vehicles and surfacing equipment.
The company provides a range of construction services including road surfacing, construction & maintenance, civil engineering, plant hire and training services, with 160 employees and turnover of around £25m.
Clients include Cumbria County Council, North Yorkshire Council and Dumfries & Galloway Council, and Sellafield.
Neil McIntyre, Kingmoor Park’s managing director said: “We have over 170 acres of development land, some of which still needs the installation of new infrastructure. New roads in particular are needed to access parts of the site and when DSD showed interest in this particular plot we decided to fund a new estate road which would open up over five acres, including the 1.5 acres now in DSD’s ownership. In keeping with our policy of using our own tenants where possible DSD were awarded the contract to build the access road to their own building.”
