Hownsgill Industrial Estate, Consett
Office and Light Industrial Development
Nicholson Nairn obtained Planning Approval for this new industrial estate in 2013. The estate will eventually feature over 40,000ft2 of both new build office and light industrial facilities. The buildings are of contemporary two-storey form and feature modern elements such as feature entrance canopies and curtain walling to add a degree of quality to the development. To soften the impact of the out of town centre estate, a large soft landscaping strip fronts the site and gabion retaining baskets are utilised to integrate into the surrounding landscape in an appropriate fashion.
Phase 1 (Units 1 – 4) commenced early summer 2017 and will be completed in early 2018.
