Rabbit Hill development underway
3 April 2015
Grounds works and building has started at our new site and we now have a moving in date!
10th October 2015 will see Green-tech moving into our new site in North Yorkshire, just off the A1 between junctions 47 and 48. The build, now estimated to be in the region of £3m has been awarded to leading North Yorkshire-based construction company Sutcliffe Construction.
Sutcliffe Construction is a principal contractor and expert steel frame fabricator. They are redeveloping the 10-acre brownfield site into a multi-use complex which will consist of seven new buildings – a head-office for Green-tech, three warehouses, a single-storey office for rental and retail units. All being well Sutcliffe’s will hand over the head office to us in October and finish the complex in November.
James Sutcliffe, Managing Director of Sutcliffe Construction, said, “Green-tech is a fast-growing company with ambitious plans and a big supporter of like-minded Yorkshire companies. This well-planned development gives us an opportunity to demonstrate a range of construction expertise from steel-fabrication to traditional masonry and ecological elements such as creating an environmentally-friendly soakaway system including drainage ponds.”
Commenting on the build Green-tech’s Managing Director, Rachel Kay said, "Green-tech is a progressive business and we are growing at an exceptional pace, with new product developments and bolt-on acquisitions within our pipeline of future work. This new purpose build will give us the capacity to increase our output and staff numbers once again as well as becoming a valued asset in the local area.
It was important to us to source local equipment, consumables and expertise. We also used York based Lawrence Hannah architects for the design.
