Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park (TeesAMP) reaches practical completion
Phase one of the landmark advanced manufacturing park, located in Middlesbrough, is now complete and ready to accept occupiers.
The 180,000 sq ft development features high specification buildings for manufacturing and R&D facilities. It will become a focal point for innovation and advanced manufacturing in the North East.
Chaloner Group developed the site in partnership with Middlesbrough Council and Tees Valley Combined Authority (TVCA), in order to attract companies to the area’s well-established advanced manufacturing sector.
Phase one utilised a predominantly North East-based supply chain, including main contractor Robertson North East and Stockton steel fabricators Nationwide Structures.
TeesAMP has been funded by £12.5 million from Middlesbrough Council, £7.65 million from TVCA and £2.3 million from the SSI Taskforce, the body set up to support regeneration after the closure of the SSI steelworks, and substantial private investment.
Geoff Hogg, chief executive of Chaloner Group, said: “We are exceptionally proud to have led the delivery of phase one of the TeesAMP, which sets the standard for high quality manufacturing facilities in the region.
“Reaching practical completion is a major milestone for the project in readiness for the first occupiers moving in.
“The interest in TeesAMP from the manufacturing sector has been considerable with around 70 per cent of the space likely to be taken in the near future, which gives us confidence to embark on phase two soon.”
