The Milton Keynes Studio of national architects, GSSArchitecture, are delighted to share that Parkway Construction have recently started on site on site for the construction of a new industrial unit at Olney Park, as part of a wider mixed-use masterplan developed for Angle Property.

GSS were appointed by Angle Property, a leading property developer and investor, to design the wider mixed-use masterplan, which incorporates industrial units, retail and fast food, a nursery and later living accommodation. The proposed landscaping will provide a high-quality amenity for visitors, employees and residents of the later living accommodation to enjoy, with areas of grassland and wildlife friendly habitats created, alongside ornamental tree specimens which will act as focal points where site users can enjoy the seasonal displays. These plans have benefitted from the guidance of GSSArchitecture’s specialist Health and Wellbeing Working Group, whose focus is to research and apply the latest Health and Wellbeing practices into their designs, significantly improving these developments for those who will be visiting them for work and leisure.

Speaking of the mixed-used masterplan at the Olney Park site, Tony Williamson, Executive Director at Angle Property, said “Angle Property is delighted to now have commenced work on site to deliver this mixed-use development.  The development will create a range of buildings for various uses which will provide services and employment to the local community as well as a state-of-the-art care home to care for elderly residents.  We have recently announced plans and details for further phases and these will be consulted upon and progressed over the remainder of the year.

Many thanks to Parkway, GSSArchitecture, WS Project Consulting and many others for getting this project to commencement on site.

This current stage of the delivery of the overall masterplan consists of the design and construction of a new 1100m2 light industrial unit, with the project consisting of integral office accommodation, associated service yard and site-wide infrastructure. The unit will be two-storeys in height and is designed to be contemporary in appearance, with an industrial aesthetic, and sits back from the main access road to facilitate a landscape buffer between the building and the road. The construction of this first industrial unit marks the beginning of the entire 11-acre mixed-use masterplan development, which GSSArchitecture are helping to deliver over several phases.

Chris Chapman, Partner at GSSArchitecture said, “I’m delighted that Parkway Construction have now started on site for the first unit at Olney Park. Having recently delivered the new Sainsbury’s store alongside Parkway, we’re looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the project team whilst delivering a new and exciting development in the local area. Our specialist in-house teams have considerable experience in the design and delivery of similar mixed-use schemes, so we are all excited that work has been able to start site on this latest development.” If you would like further information on the range of projects that GSSArchitecture are working on in the commercial and industrial sector, as well as details on their vast experience in the development of masterplans, please visit
