WARWICK Burt Construction continues to play a major part in projects across the region, with a number of projects set to complete during the summer months for key clients.

In Milton Keynes, external work is almost complete at the new 30,000 square foot headquarters of food industry supplier Reiser. The new £1.8m UK facility on Maidstone Road, Kingston, is being developed by Hampton Brook and will see the Reiser UK team relocating from leased premises close by.

The US-based firm is a leading supplier of processing and packaging equipment solutions for the sausage, meat, poultry, seafood, prepared food, bakery and cheese industries, gaining recognition for its high-quality equipment, innovative engineering, and outstanding service and support.

Its success in this country has necessitated the need for larger UK premises and the Milton Keynes plant will support the firm's continued UK development.

In Cambridgeshire, Warwick Burt has been working with Newcrest Estates Don a combined unit, with a retail ground floor pre-let to the Co-op and four residential two-bedroom flats above. This is the third development on behalf of Newcrest Estates by Warwick Burt, with a fourth in the offing.

The project, with a build value of £1m is due to be completed in the summer of 2018.

Warwick Burt has also been working with Oadby Plastics on a new £1.7m 25,000 square foot facility in Braintree, Essex. Oadby Plastics, which has its headquarters in Leicestershire, is one of the UK's leading plastics suppliers, offering one of the largest plastics machining facilities in the country.

The structure of the new regional distribution centre, is now complete and external cladding is being fitted in preparation for the centre to be up and running the summer. This continues a long relationship with Oadby Plastics following the construction of their £4m new headquarters facility in Leicester three years ago.

Closer to home, in February practical completion was achieved at Site C at Magnetic Park in Desborough for Partridge Print, a local business relocating its main base to a purpose built unit on a prime site. The 27,000 square foot facility on a 2.15-acre plot has enabled the family-run company to relocate its print, warehousing, mailing services and fulfilment activities to the town early 2018, potentially increasing its number of employees by at least 20. This was built in conjunction with a new 45,000 square.foot unit for Dunkelman of Desborough as part of a £4.5m project on behalf of Hampton Brook. A further similar project is too start shortly in Milton Keynes.

"The forthcoming years workload is hopefully looking to exceed that of 2017," said Director Tony Warwick
