The works shall include the construction of a high quality three storey office facility and 8 light industrial units across 2 blocks.
ERDF Funding approval has been granted for Aerohub Business Park — Phase 1 (Plot 2) project and will be part of creating 851 m2 of office space and 1 856 m2 (GI area) of light industrial space for SMEs on a high profile, constraint free site, acting as a catalyst for the future development of the Aerohub Enterprise Zone through the delivery of circa 7 500 m2 (plot area) of BREEAM Excellent workspace within the Newquay Aerohub Enterprise zone. The Aerohub Business Park — Phase 1 (Plot 2) project will have the capacity to accommodate specific office workspace alongside light industrial units and service yards. The units will be able to accommodate 14 small or medium sized enterprises and the units have been designed to facilitate future growth through combining units for ultimate flexibility.
