FOR Warwick Burt Construction, 2019 has, so far, been an exciting year. Enquiries and conversions into live projects have risen sharply and with additional experienced staff recruited we are in a strong position to go forward into 2020.

The company continues to play a major part in projects across the region, with a number of projects set to commence during the autumn months for key clients.

In Milton Keynes, we have recently completed a £3.5m project for regular client Hampton Brook at Knowlhill, Milton Keynes. The project consisted of two new industrial units, totalling 45,000 square feet, one of which is already pre-let.

This followed on from the successful completion of the new 30,000 square foot headquarters of food industry supplier Reiser. The new £2.5m UK facility on Maidstone Road, Kingston, was also developed by Hampton Brook and has seen the Reiser UK team relocating from leased premises close by.

Warwick Burt are also currently approaching completion of a major £2.5m office refit for Hampton Brook on the old Monarch Airlines Headquarters Building at Luton Airport. Completion of this project will be in November 2019.

Having already completed a number of projects for Newcrest Estates, Warwick Burt have recently handed over its fourth project for a £1.5m three-block retail estate in Aylesbury, with the lead occupier being Sainsbury Local.

Over 10 years ago Warwick Burt built a total of nine office blocks for both Hampton Brook and St Clair Investments on Bedford Road in Northampton at Waterside close to the Britannia pub. Well, the office market seems to have returned as St Clair Investments have engaged the company again to build out the next phase. The first 10,000 square foot three-storey unit and associated infrastructure of £1.7m value will complete in November. The second 10,000 square foot unit for Car Shop started in March and will also complete before Christmas.

This year has also seen the start of two major schemes for repeat clients, the first being a new £6m headquarters and production facility for Integral Powertrain at Shenley Wood in Milton Keynes. Integral Powertrain are at the leading edge of research, development and manufacture involving car engine transmissions and very much involved with the electric car revolution.

The second scheme is a double repeat in that this is the fourth development with Chris Carlisle of Decorum Estates and the second regional office building to be built for Bloor Homes.

Warwick Burt commenced construction of the £3.5m two-storey 25,000 square feet office building on the site at Swan Valley in Northampton in June this year. Completion is due in spring next year.
