Office development creates attractive gateway to Mansfield Woodhouse

A new £970,000 office development, which now welcomes people arriving by train at Mansfield Woodhouse Station, was today (29 June) officially opened by Executive Mayor Tony Egginton.

The new development has transformed the former empty site and has includes new lighting with the area and improvements to the landscaping and a public footpath through to the site. The adjoining industrial estate has also been screened off and new trees have been planted.

The office development includes six individual office units of 72 sq m each, which are available to rent and are an expansion to the nearby Woodhouse Enterprise Centre.

The building has achieved a BREEAM Excellent rating - the standard for best practice in sustainable design, construction and operation. With its excellent environmental credentials it helps to reduce operational costs and enhances its value and marketability.

The regeneration project aims to provide a positive, safe and attractive gateway to Mansfield Woodhouse for passengers arriving by train.

The majority of the development has been funded through Regional Development Fund (ERDF) together with Local Enterprise Growth Initiative (LEGI) and contributions from Mansfield District Council. The work is being carried out by A and S Enterprises.

Cllr Kate Allsop, Portfolio Holder for Economic Regeneration at Mansfield District Council, also attended the official opening. She said: "This new development has massively enhanced the appearance of the area and provides a more pleasant greeting to passengers arriving at Mansfield Woodhouse train station. It also provides small and medium sized businesses with modern, high quality employment accommodation in an important area of Mansfield, as well as providing good employment opportunities for local people."

Andy Sulin, Managing Director of A&S Enterprises said "We are pleased to have been entrusted with this building contract which has been challenging due to the topography of the site and have enjoyed working in partnership with Mansfield District Council."
