CPNE - Andrew Wilkinson, Jonathan Simpson, Tim Carter (2)

 

Tim Carter, Director of CPNE said: “This is testament to the 12 months of hard work that we have put into getting this new practice up and running and we are extremely proud of this achievement, and we would like to thank all of our clients for supporting us and helping to make this possible.”

The award represents a diverse and varied specification of buildings with over 70 individual transactions over the course of the year. The award is a further accolade for Tim Carter who, in 2013, was named the Estates Gazette most active deal maker for the whole of the North East.

Rental growth in the sector has continued to rise, triggering significant investment, with the A1 corridor continuing to be the region’s top performing area.  The end of last year saw Darlington’s biggest industrial letting for a number of years, comprising of 25,000 sq ft to JLM Foods at the award-winning Lingfield Point.

Beauty in the Beehive – thanks to our latest customer »

 

We’ve just created some very special space for our latest new customer – a unique beauty clinic based in the Beehive – offering the whole remit of treatments to keep Darlington feeling confident and looking good!

The Cosmetics Room is run by Dawn O’Neill, an expert in aesthetics and cosmetic and medical tattoos, who thought the busy business park would be an ideal setting for her new venture.

Based in Beehive– which recently underwent a full make-over of its own – the Cosmetics Room is at the heart of Lingfield Point’s buzzing business community.  The unique space is a welcome addition to the many facilities available at this development that can offer office space in Darlington from 1,800sqft and even an exclusive camper van for break out or informal meetings.

BEEHIVE

Dawn offers everything from permanent makeup and tattoo removal to wrinkle relaxing injections, vampire facials and skin peels.  She works alongside Jennie Smith who specialises in cosmetic and beauty therapies such as make-up, HD brows, nails, contouring and spray tans.

Dawn said: “I wanted to train in permanent make-up and paramedical tattooing after reading about people who needed help after chemotherapy or surgery – it literally changed their lives – but I couldn’t afford it initially.

“Then I was made redundant and was able to use my redundancy to train – I believe in fate it was meant to be. Now I’ve been in business for five years and have worked freelance all over the North East but I was tired of the travelling and wanted my own base.

“I chose Lingfield Point as I have clients travelling for three hours for treatments, so my priority was easy access from the A1, A19 and train station and bus service, with free car parking.

“I also hoped that having Jennie as a beautician would provide a service to the people working at Lingfield Point and surrounding businesses.”

Estate Manager Eddie Humphries said: “It is always great to welcome new businesses to the neighbourhood.

“Our facilities are first class – from our fabulous broadband connectivity – essential for today’s businesses – to our 24 hour on-site concierge and security service and extensive car parking. The Cosmetics Room will add more colour to our exceptional facilities such as on site bus service, a café bistro, child care nursery, book swap club and our busy calendar of activities.

“Lingfield Point is very accessible, it’s easy to get to from across the North East and with around 3,000 people based here I can see the Cosmetics Room is going to be very busy!”

Beehive is home to a wide range of businesses from both the public and private sector including FaulknerBrowns – the internationally-acclaimed architectural practice, NFU, NFU Mutual and Internet firm Easy Web and offers space from 1,800sqft through to 15,000sqft+.

Fancy buzzing over to the Beehive and making your business feel at home?

SNACK firm JLM Global Foods is making a healthy expansion – to new warehousing space at Lingfield Point in Darlington.

The rapidly growing company has taken 23,000 sq ft of warehousing space as customers around the world embrace healthier living.

JLM Global Foods is the latest firm to join Lingfield Point’s growing logistics base – following investment to strengthen its offer to meet a burgeoning need for flexible and accessible warehousing space in the North East.

Paul Huggins, Chief Executive, said: “We are an expanding business and needed more space close to our HQ in Darlington and Lingfield Point provided the ideal location.

“The logistics here, being so close to road, rail and sea links, are ideal for a company like JLM Global Foods as we have to move stock fast and efficiently.

“We’ve been very impressed with the space and the facilities here – it is extremely secure and yet very accessible which is the perfect combination for us.

“And our staff are delighted there is an on-site canteen – even though we’re never short of a snack or two!”

Julian Brooke, of Lingfield Warehousing and Logistics, said:

“We are really delighted to welcome JLM Global Foods to Lingfield Point. They join a growing number of national and international firms choosing to base themselves with us. “Our continuing success is due to our ideal location, great infrastructure, flexibility in terms of both space and leases and the unrivalled security we offer – from CCTV, to 24-hour security and gated entrances.”

Connect Property North East’s Jonathan Simpson who markets the industrial offer at Lingfield Point said:

“This letting characterises the recent upturn in the regional industrial and logistics market that we have witnessed over the last 12 months. We have now reached a position where demand is now starting to significantly outstrip supply, particularly in both Newton Aycliffe and Darlington. Both the strength of the regional manufacturing sector and the recent opening of the new Hitachi train building facility is further enhancing Lingfields Point and Darlington as a strategic location.

Jonathan Simpson added “Lingfield Point is the only scheme in Darlington that can offer immediate use of warehouse and logistics space of 20,000 sq ft+”

Already the base for a number of national occupiers and distribution centres, Lingfield Point can offer units from as little as 800sqft through to 100,000sqft+; offering flexible lease lengths, storage and even 3rd party logistics support on easy terms.

With superb security, 24 hour gatehouse and hub, gated entrances, vehicle recognition and extensive CCTV – why not locate your logistics business at Lingfield?

Budding entrepreneurs sparkle with success this Christmas »

As Darlington’s biggest provider of office space – already representing over 60 businesses in the Tees Valley – our neighbourhood is always buzzing with activity – even more so this Christmas.

With a wonderful calendar of events this Christmas, we’ve welcomed Red Hall Primary School with Christmas crafts and cards for our neighbourhood to buy – all hand-made – raising money for their school funds – their unique sparkle and creative sales techniques ensured they sold out within an hour of their arrival!

make_grow_tcm36-33058

As part of the Virgin Money’s Make £5 Grow scheme, a number of local primary schools, including Red Hall Primary School have teamed up with Foundation for Jobs to teach our younger generation the value of money and how to run a mini-business.

Aged between 9 – 11, our local children have been learning valuable lessons – from designing products; developing business plans, making products and even how to sell – we hope we’re heping to give them a great grounding on the basic principles of business – and where best to learn this but in a creative environment like Lingfield Point.

It’s a scheme to get our children building skills for the future – learning valuable lessons surrounded by mentors and our supportive environment. Virgin Money have given children £5 per head and have worked in teams to develop a wide range of products to entice our friends and colleagues to buy during this festive season.

Children are encouraged to think carefully about their target audience, product costing, pricing and marketing. And in the process, they develop their business skills and financial understanding. In addition, schools keep any profit made after the original loan has been paid back – a great reward for pupils’ enterprise and hard work!

Once the programme has finished, the school will learn how much our local children have made – with all profits going to the school fund – a great way to experience the benefits of strong leadership and clear thinking.

Surrounded by creativity; customer service and of course great office space, we’re hoping our local school children will relish the challenge and opportunity of business – we’ll certainly be encouraging this flair of productivity.

Fancy a chat on your office or industrial needs for your business? Pick up the phone and we’ll pop the kettle on. 

Call our management team on 01325 486486 or one of our leasing agents David Jackson at Jackson & Partners on 01325 352 461
