Castlehouse Construction Completes Harrogate Industrial Units

Leeds based firm Castlehouse Construction has completed the construction of two pre-let industrial units totalling 12,000 sq ft on Claro Way in Harrogate for the Trustees of the Green Regeneration Ltd Pension Fund.

Husband and wife team Ken and Betty Raw own the fund and the building was handled by Denton Pension Management Ltd.

Harrogate Autos have pre-let the units and will occuply an 8,000 sq ft unit, while Edmundson Electrical Ltd will lease the 4,000 sq ft unit. Yorkshire building and joinery firm, G K Raw & Co Ltds originally traded on the site. G K Raw & Co Ltd was owned and run by Ken and Betty Raw for 36 years before it was acquired in 2009 after a management buyout.

Denton Pension Management Ltd awarded the £800,000 contract to Castlehouse Construction, while 2H Architects was the project architect. The two units have now been handed over.

Richard Lumley, Director of Castlehouse Construction, said; “We are pleased to have successfully completed this industrial development for the client, Ken and Betty Raw. The pre-let deals demonstrate the appeal of units of this size in Harrogate.”

Ken and Betty Raw commented; “We are very pleased with the work undertaken by Castlehouse to deliver this successful scheme.”

Last month, Castlehouse completed the makeover of a Lidl supermarket store in Northwich.

The project began in February and saw the Chester Way store upgraded with a 2,066 sq ft non-sales extension which will incorporate a shop entrance and a new bakery.

Externally, the upgrades included the introduction of floor-to-ceiling shopfront glazing, recladding of the site’s elevations and the installation of replacement windows and doors.

Castlehouse also delivered layout changes to the store’s car park to enhance the customer parking experience and add a trolley bay.

The works form part of an investment programme that will see the supermarket chain modernising its UK-wide portfolio.
