New build Travis Perkins completes at Vesuvius, Worksop

A 1,933m2 purpose-built builders merchant facility has completed at the Vesuvius development off Sandy Lane, Worksop and is set to open in July.

Property development and investment company, CEG, managed the build of the bespoke unit, which will be leased by Travis Perkins. The development will create 20 new jobs, deliver a new supply chain facility for existing local business and bring economic benefits to the area.

Will Moss, Acquisition Director from Travis Perkins plc, said: We’re really excited to have secured this new two-acre site in Worksop, which will be a key branch for Travis Perkins, providing a fantastic offering for our customers. It’s scheduled to open in July and this means we’ll be able to create new jobs in the community and help support Worksop’s construction workers and tradespeople with the expert knowledge and advice that they come to expect from Travis Perkins.”

CEG is currently managing the comprehensive regeneration of the 17.75ha Vesuvius site. With planning permission for more than 200,00ft2 of employment space, the first phase of 46,000ft2 of multi-tenanted industrial units adjacent to Asda completed last year and is almost fully let. Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service also acquired land at the site and has built a new fire station.

Subsequent phases will also offer larger employment units including speculative as well as pre-let, design and build development for office, light industry, storage and distribution requirements.

A thriving business community

Will Martin, strategic land lead at CEG, said: We welcome Travis Perkins to this thriving business community. This brownfield regeneration has proved a success with many companies thriving on the site. It has been the largest speculative development of this scale and quality in Worksop for many years and we continue to see strong interest in the space from well-known national trade and industrial occupiers alongside smaller, local businesses.”

In 2019, supported by D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), CEG delivered a £5.5million package of works to create a new roundabout and access road opening up the site and making it easily accessible to the A60, A57, Worksop and its surrounds. As part of this work, the land was remediated to pave the way for redevelopment.

Will Morlidge, Chief Executive Officer at D2N2 LEP said: “It’s great to see the new Travis Perkins branch has been completed and will soon be open to benefit the local community.

“The Vesuvius site represents an exciting landmark development for Worksop and the wider area, and we’re very proud to have supported it. The success of the site demonstrates the resurgent appetite for investment across north Nottinghamshire, supporting our collective ambitions to rebuild and grow our economy.”
