First offices arrive on site at ModVillage

Last week, Carlisle’s ModVillage development took a huge leap forward as the first offices arrived on site at Kingmoor Park, Carlisle.

The first two offices – made up of two shipping containers weighing six and a half tonnes apiece – were dropped into place by crane. With them now in situ we are working with the team at Kingmoor Park to add the finishing touches ready for the first occupiers. This initial phase, which has been designed and project managed by our talented Prospus team, will consist of 34 offices and a café.

Alistair Fell, Director at Prospus Group said;

“The delivery of these units is incredibly quick. Signing on the dotted line to occupancy could be as quick as 12 weeks for new tenants and we have the capacity to deliver as many of these unique offices as demand requires. Needless to say, there has been a lot of interest in the project which is the first of its kind in Cumbria.

The draw of having a brand-new, high-quality, modern office with your own front door, great transport links, and parking is a big attraction for local businesses. ModVillage offers a monthly “all in” cost including rent, utilities, superfast broadband, etc. The offices are light, well equipped with a kitchen and WC, and are even pet-friendly.”

Now that the infrastructure works have been completed and the first containers are on site the landscape works can begin. This includes creating an attractive outdoor communal area for occupiers to enjoy. Stairs will be fitted enabling access to the upstairs offices which will also have terrace areas. Occupying businesses will have the opportunity to become part of a first-of-its-kind network where growth and development are encouraged by Kingmoor Park.

Kingmoor Park’s Managing Director, Neil McIntyre, 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.”
