Leeds building services and engineering consultants FHP has completed undisclosed work for developer Priority Space to provide MEP services for a £2.7m development at a new North East of England industrial estate and business park for SMEs.

The move saw the Leeds and London-based firm, which also acted as design and client technical advisor for the project, provide an undisclosed package of building services. This included energy strategy, mechanical and electrical, and sustainability design work, as well as technical advice to Priority Space, which has developed the 12 new business units at Evolution Park, Barrington Way in Darlington (below).

This is part of a construction initiative to transform the 1.4 acres of vacant development land into a range of different sized units designed to accommodate SMEs looking to set up or expand their manufacturing or distribution businesses.

The contract is the latest success for FHP as it continues to grow its portfolio of nationwide work and target revenues in excess of £3.5 million in turnover by the end of the year.

James Taylor, director of FHP’s Leeds office, said: “This is the latest success for us as we continue to partner with Priority Space, supporting their ambitious growth and national development plans.  We look forward to further success into next year and expand beyond the region on the back of a strong pipeline of work.”

Adam Richardson, director of Priority Space, said: “Our commitment to investing £3m to develop new industrial units represents a major milestone for us in North East England. Working alongside our construction team, the FHP team are a key ingredient in creating high quality industrial developments that meet the highest design and build standards.”
