First occupier moves into ModVillage

NXT Recruitment has become the first occupier to move into the ModVillage development based at Kingmoor Park, Carlisle.

ModVillage offers high-quality, vibrant office space in which local businesses can grow. The development is the first of its kind for Cumbria and the flexible lease terms and great location should see the development flourish over the coming months.

NXT Recruitment recently completed their move and their new space compromises of a large open-plan office, reception area, interview room, and a kitchen. They also have a spacious meeting area complete with its own kitchen and bathroom facilities that they plan to hire out to other local businesses.

ModVillage has been architecturally designed by Prospus Group who are also managing the project as it develops. Prospus Director, Alistair Fell commented:

It is fantastic to be working with the team at Kingmoor Park to develop Cumbria’s first shipping container business village and it’s great to see the first occupiers moving into their new space. The offices are so visually striking externally and of such a high-quality finish internally that they really are a great place to be.

The development demonstrates how clever architectural design and strong vision can deliver fantastic spaces. Similar projects in the UK are playing a vital part in providing unique, economical, and environmentally friendly business space for companies thus contributing to the regeneration of urban areas, creating hubs for like-minded entrepreneurs and creatives, and providing jobs for local communities.

The containers are lined with extremely efficient spray foam insulation which means that they stay at a perfect temperature during both winter and summer. Floor-to-ceiling windows mean that the offices provide a light and airy space to work from, and the addition of the communal garden and roof terrace offer fantastic places for people to enjoy the sunshine during the warmer months.

Each office is independent of others on the development, which means each space benefits from having its own main entrance, kitchen, and toilet facilities, removing the need for shared access, allowing occupiers greater peace-of-mind during this challenging time we find ourselves in owing to the Coronavirus pandemic. Tenants are able to decorate their office to personalise it and with a variety of office sizes available, businesses have the ability to increase office space as they grow. With a wide variety of businesses looking to occupy the offices it is hoped that a collaborative and dynamic business community will develop as ModVillage evolves.

There is already over 3,400sqft on site most of which is now under offer with a further 6,200sqft due to arrive in the coming months.
