Work is about to begin at Blaby Business Park on prestigious new-build premises that will drive expansion for a local family firm.
Leading Leicestershire commercial property specialist, Andrew + Ashwell, alongside joint agents APB, has negotiated the sale and construction of a two-storey office building, fronting the park. The 5,615 sq ft unit, due for completion next autumn, will provide space for purchaser PSA Financial Services Ltd; to move from currently cramped premises in neighbouring Glen Parva.
Located close to the A426 Blaby Bypass, 3.5 miles south of Leicester city centre and with fast access to M1 and M69 motorway junctions, Blaby Business Park is a comprehensive development offering design and build solutions for industrial and warehouse units up to 75,000 sq ft and office premises from 5,000 sq ft up to 15,000 sq ft.
The seven-acre site was purchased in 2016 for development jointly by Leicestershire-based Brackley Property Developments and Grange Developments. Units are constructed to high specifications, built to individual occupiers’ requirements and with generous parking.
The new building provides exciting new prospects for PSA, a family firm of independent financial advisers which has recently expanded with the recruitment of Managing Director Paul Smith’s two sons, Daniel and George into the business.
Established by Paul 26 years ago, the firm has a sound reputation among many local businesses, being a true family firm that has also included Paul’s father Roger.
The interior of the new building has been planned by Paul himself to create an enviable working environment for staff, with open plan office space designed by New English to include an impressive reception area, interlinking meeting rooms, a kitchen and a gym.
“Having started with just me, we now have a team of 24 and this building will provide us with four to five times more room, which will ease the pressure and provide the space we badly need,” explained Paul. “It is an exciting prospect for our future expansion.”
Stephen Pedrick-Moyle, Managing Director at Brackley Property Developments, said:
“Blaby Business Park offers huge potential as a catalyst for growth, both for locally run and national companies seeking a central base.
“Blaby is a particularly strong location for its motorway access, as well as the established commercial environments at nearby Meridian and Grove Parks, Cambridge Road Whetstone and Winchester Avenue Blaby, as well as Blaby town centre itself, which all provide a thriving commercial area.
“We are very much looking forward to completing work on this high quality scheme for PSA Financial Services Ltd; and wish them well for their future growth.”
