Taylor Lindsey has commenced the development of a 15,000 sq ft builders’ merchant on a 2-acre site adjacent the A1 at Newark.

National contractor Tolent has been appointed and started on the £1.5m contract which will see the clearance of the existing site, construction of a steel frame building, external works, utilities connections and fit-out works. The project is scheduled to be completed by March 2021.

John Currie, regional director for Tolent, said: “This was a really positive win for us, and one that recognises our experienced teams and brilliant reputation within the industrial and commercial sectors. Work started on site last month to transform this site into a high quality build for our client Taylor Lindsey Ltd and it will be a fantastic addition to our ever-growing portfolio.”

Dan Race, Development Director with landowner and developer Taylor Lindsey, said “We are pleased to be working with Tolent on our latest development at Newark and we’re confident that their professional approach to the job will produce a high quality finished product for our tenant to move into in the Spring.”
