Office / light industrial units in Redruth, Cornwall
BBC: Barncoose building plan awarded 6.6m GBP European funding

In total this development at Barncoose Industrial Park offers between 5,000 and 42,000 square feet of office suites, and between 4,300 and 9,300 square feet of industrial units with offices. The BREEAM Excellent rating will be achieved on occupation - the measure of performance of a building in relation to energy use and efficiency, health and well being and pollution - and the strikingly designed buildings are situated in a carefully conceived landscaped environment with ample car-parking provided throughout.

The developer has created the Barncoose Units 1 - 9 with sustainability in mind, having reclaimed a brownfield site on which to locate the development. There are few opportunities to acquire such well designed state-of-the-art workspace in Cornwall. Office suites offer uncompromised flexible and spacious open plan accommodation - making maximum use of natural light - combining great design and versatile office space whilst minimizing energy use and harmful environmental impact.

The building envelopes have been designed to be exceptionally air tight, which reduces unwanted heat loss and saves energy. The central heating system uses high-efficiency condensing boilers, operating at efficient low temperatures, reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions, all radiators are thermostatically controlled with heating serving individual units independently zoned. In addition, energy meters are installed so that energy consumption for different uses can be monitored by the Building Management System.

Neil Stevens, Operations Director for the developer, commented: We are delighted with the interest that our new development at Barncoose has attracted, with 50% of the office suites and industrial units already sold or under offer. Our clients to date have been impressed not only by the central location, with the main A30 access to the region only one minute away, but also the quality of the units which is second-to-none in the area.

Various leading social housing and construction groups have secured spaces at the new development, and with modern light industrial facilities and storage space also available, the developers expect interest from clients involved in a wide range of market sectors.

Portreath two developments commencing on site
Work is currently underway on site at two new developments in Portreath, Cornwall, which are anticipated to achieve at least Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

'Sunnyvale Meadow' is a select gated development of three detached properties designed by Sanders Pepper Smith, which features an emphasis on the styling and design of contemporary living spaces with exceptionally low running costs. The properties are of generous proportions and are presented to a very high specification, within a setting of professionally landscaped and managed grounds - offering residents a high degree of seclusion.

The development itself is well-placed within easy walking distance of one of Cornwalls finest family beaches at Portreath - offering great surfing and bodyboarding - and yet only five minutes from the main A30 access to Cornwall and ten minutes from the local amenities of Redruth including retail, leisure centre, restaurants and a station on the main Penzance - Paddington railway line. Newquay International Airport is only 15 miles away.

'Homefield', a superb development of four 2-bed apartments and nine two-bedroom houses designed by Sanders Pepper Smith, features an emphasis on the styling and design of contemporary living spaces with exceptionally low running costs.

Presented to a high specification, these homes feature an attention to detail and are set within professionally landscaped and managed grounds - offering residents a high degree of seclusion. At Homefield, the developer's passion for design, a level of care in construction techniques and an attention to detail combine to create another stylish and healthy living environment for families to live life to the full.

Heading westbound on the A30 after Chiverton Cross roundabout take the slip road after four miles. On reaching the roundabout take the third exit and after half a mile turn left on to Bassett Road. At the crossroads turn right on to the B3300. Proceed for two and a half miles then turn right on to Sunnyvale Road. After one quarter mile Homefield is seen on the left.

Threemilestone Pre School now completed
The childrens charity, Threemilestone Pre School appointed Sanders Pepper Smith RIBA Chartered Architects Practice to create their brand new pre-school building at Threemilestone, Cornwall, and - with completion by Frame UK and Arvor Construction - the new facility was officially opened on 23 April.

Just prior to commencement of the project in 2009, Hugh Tyler, Chairperson of the Threemilestone Pre-School Committee, commented: Last December the old Pre School building was condemned leaving the children with no permanent home, but over the last year, with much dedication, the parents who make up the Pre School committee managed to raise funding to construct this superb new building. We know that Frame and Arvor have an excellent reputation in creating educational buildings and are very excited to have secured their services.

'This project designed by Sanders Pepper Smith very much fits in with Frame UKs goal of providing ever better service and making a difference in the local community' said Rob Smith, Finance Director of Frame UK. 'We know that Threemilestone Pre School has provided many local children with the opportunity to develop and grow in a warm and friendly learning environment and we are delighted that they will now be able to benefit from the quality of build and finish that Frame UK and Arvor can provide'.

A registered charity, Threemilestone Pre School has a staff team of fully-qualified, experienced and committed practitioners providing a safe, welcoming child-centred environment, where children can engage fruitfully with a good range of activities and resources and make good progress. Staff ensure children's individual welfare and learning needs are met well and effective partnerships with parents and carers support that endeavour.
