Magnet attracted to larger space at Lingfield Point »

 

Our industrial offer for warehousing and logistics has shown its massive pull for regional businesses after Magnet increased its base six-fold.

Magnet already occupied a 12,000 sq ft space but has now taken a huge 76,000 sq ft unit – which is great news for our Darlington business park and proves the massive potential for the Eastern Growth Zone of Darlington.

Jonathan Simpson, of Connect Property North East, said: “The fact that Lingfield Point is so accessible to the region, with routes that connect to major roads make it an ideal logistics hub for Magnet.

“This letting represents the largest warehouse letting in the Tees Valley so far this year and follows quickly the recent letting of 25,000 sq ft to JLM Foods on the park.”

Our accessibility is a massive pull for logistics

Simon Hay, Warehouse Operations Manager, said: “Magnet is a growing company and we needed to expand into a much bigger warehousing space in a convenient and easy to access location. This move is very important to our future so it was vital we took the right decision.

“Our original base at Lingfield Point gives us everything we need, with top class on-site facilities and extensive security. After looking around the region we could not find anywhere that came close – so we were delighted Lingfield could accommodate such a huge expansion.

“The new site represents a commitment by Magnet to continue to invest in Darlington and will create a fit for purpose facility to support our future growth strategy.”

 

Eddie Humphries, Lingfield Point Estate Manager, said: “There’s only one thing we love more than welcoming new customers and that’s seeing our existing firms grow and prosper like Magnet. The fact we have exemplary transport links – with road, rail, sea and air routes all within 30 minutes’ drive time – will be important to Magnet – as well as the superb 24 hour security with extensive CCTV which are obviously vital to our customers.”

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 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?

A great way to spend a day »

 
This year’s Tees Valley Business Summit has been hailed as the most successful yet and we couldn’t agree more!

Now in its fifth year, the event welcomed more than 700 delegates and 106 exhibitors on the day.

We’re pleased to sponsor such a busy, vibrant gathering organised by the Tees Valley Combined Authority and BE Group. The positive atmosphere of the day reflects our firm belief that the Tees Valley will continue to prosper, and that it’s the perfect place to do business.  This follows an already very successful year for us as we’ve been over the moon with soaring demand for our office and warehousing space.

1a3e96_63fb109d299b4dd48c256e3e8ef58a0f

We’ve been really impressed by the quality of the networking opportunities and the calibre of businesses taking part over the years and is a key date in our calendar – we love reaching out to regional businesses, it’s the perfect way to look at ways of working together.  We think its a great way of meeting key contacts that support business growth in the region alongside customers of today – and tomorrow.

We’re thrilled to have played a key role in the summit’s success this year, helping it to be even bigger and better than before. Exhibitors and visitors enjoyed practical seminars, useful workshops and excellent networking opportunities – and our very special honey made by our bees especially for the day.  Anyone visiting our exhibition experienced a taste of life at Lingfield with our bikes, beehives and even honey on show!

Our car share is miles better! »

 

IF you want to share your commute with people who work at the same place as you – why not call a Faxi?

Our neighbourhood has around 3,000 people working in office and industrial space at Lingfield Point, Darlington and – as a business always at the forefront of smart thinking – we’ve signed up for an online car sharing scheme to make it easier to link up with people making the same journey.

The idea of the journey-share website is to get a group of ‘friends’ acting as a taxi service to create ‘Faxi’ journeys – to save the environment and cash for the users.

Launching the initiative, our very own Eddie Humphries, said: “Sharing a commute with friends seems obvious – the difference is that Faxi puts together friends who just haven’t met yet!”

Lingfield Point – which already provides excellent cycle and public transport links – is working with Darlington Borough Council and Local Motion on the project which aims to help at least ten percent of the employees on site.  The launch of the car share scheme follows a recent survey by the council which found that nearly half of those asked at Lingfield Point said they would register for a car sharing scheme if one was offered. The survey also found that 61 percent of employees on-site currently drive to work alone, 79 percent chose their travel mode based on convenience and 28 percent on cost.

The Faxi website allows customers at Lingfield Point to access like-mined people from a range of businesses across the 90 acre site.

Alex Kay, Sustainable Transport Officer at Darlington Borough Council, said: “Lingfield Point has huge potential for employees to travel more sustainably.

“With hundreds of people driving to the same place each day at roughly the same time, it makes sense to reduce the number of cars filing up the site and roads on a daily basis.

“From the 547 employees who took part nearly half said they would register for a car sharing scheme. The survey revealed many will look at their drive to work and think about possible savings. We’re pleased to be working with Lingfield Point on this exciting new scheme.”

Eddie said: “The survey clearly showed that many employees like the idea of car sharing and we felt it was important to offer this great service to our customers, and to do so in an easy, convenient way.

“The new Faxi platform is simple to use and accessible on the go via smartphone. Journey sharing can help to lower fuel bills, reduce wear and tear on vehicles and lower emissions – so everyone benefits.

“Here at Lingfield Point we offer the very best service to businesses such as 100Mb broadband, a 24/7 concierge service, great public transport links and excellent amenities. We’re confident that good businesses feel at home at Lingfield Point and we’re delighted to launch this exciting new service.”

*The scheme is part of the Council’s Local Motion Project, which is funded by the Department for Transport.

Tees Valley Business Summit announced »

 

The fifth annual Tees Valley Business Summit is gearing up to be the best yet, and we can’t wait to be involved again.  

Organisers, Tees Valley Unlimited, the Local Enterprise Partnership for Tees Valley and Tees Valley Business Compass expect to exceed last year’s event with over 700 delegates and 100 exhibitors attending the hugely successful event in 2015.

Taking place on Tuesday 5th July 2016 at the Olympia Building, Teesside University, the Tees Valley Business Summit is free to attend and features practical seminars, inspirational workshops, one-to-one advice meetings and networking opportunities.

Paul Booth, Chairman of Tees Valley Unlimited, said:  “This is the biggest and best business networking event in the Tees Valley and it is growing every year.

“It is so important that businesses have the opportunity to come together to listen and learn at the seminars and workshops and also to make invaluable contacts to support other local organisations and gain valuable new clients and customers.”

Lingfield Point exhibited at Tees Valley Business Summit for the first time in 2015 and were amazed at the quality and calibre of contacts made.  We were able to give a taste of lingfield life with bikes, beehives and even cupcakes from our cafe that sits alongside our available office and warehousing space in Darlington.  

Great faciliies await new businesses at Lingfield Point

Great facilities await businesses at Lingfield Point, Darlington

The whole day provided us with time to assess and reflect on how the Tees Valley continues to grow and react to emerging markets, understand wider regional and national economic trends, but also enabled us to strengthen our own development plans – in line with the strategic ambition of the whole region.

We’ve been so impressed we have become more actively involved in 2016 and would recommend that any business that does business in the Tees Valley attend – its time well-spent.

Demand for space soars »

 

We’re over the moon to welcome a cluster of new, creative companies to our neighbourhood – having seen demand for our office space in Darlington soar in the last few months.

And its not just office space – our warehousing and storage space is now being taken at a rapid rate – thanks to the likes of JLM Foods arriving at Lingfield Point.

One of our latest companies to make the move to Lingfield Point is Dickinson Media – a full service marketing agency.

Director, Adam Dickinson, said: “We’ve been in business for nine years and have been going from strength -to-strength thanks to a host of new business wins. It’s an exciting time to be in the industry.

“The way the business is going we would have no choice but to expand further. The office space is modern, in a great location and meets our needs. The facilities on-site are a major benefit for our business and we’re delighted to have joined the neighbourhood at Lingfield Point.”

Estate Manager, Eddie Humphries, said: “We’re delighted that more creative companies are moving to Lingfield Point. We’ve got a wide range of space on offer that meets a variety of needs and our excellent facilities – including 100MB fibre broadband, on-site concierge and café – ensure that businesses here enjoy their day-to-day environment immensely.

“Lingfield Point is an excellent base for business, the location allows great access to road and rail links which means creative companies can quickly reach their clients and they can visit easily. Connectivity is key for businesses in the North East and we’re pleased to be able to help even more businesses grow and succeed.”

As well as Dickinson Media’s latest move, national advocacy provider, Advent Advocacy has recently taken up space at Lingfield Point and Para-Sols – which supports the needs of financial advisers and planners – recently doubled its office space, moving from 500 sq ft to 1,000 sq ft.

Agent Tim Carter of Connect Property North East, said: “Inquires have increased significantly since January. We have seen a real upturn within the Darlington office market and take-up for the first half of 2016 is looking very encouraging.

“In addition to new lettings at Lingfield Point, several companies have continued to grow and are now expanding into larger spaces on the site.

“The transformation of office and industrial space at Lingfield Point has helped create one of the best working environments in the North East.”

We couldn’t agree more Tim!

Award-winning space for award-winning customers »

 

We’re proud to be home to over 60 businesses around our neighbourhood – in a variety of shapes and sizes – all enjoying unique business space in Darlington. 

We’re even more proud of our customers – friends and colleagues – especially when they get the recognition they deserve for their ingenious quality of service and unique approach to customer care that resonates across our neighbourhood. 

home instead senior care

One very special company is our Lingfield House-based customer – Home Instead Senior Care – who is celebrating having received the UK’s highest accolade for business success.

The UK’s No 1 homecare provider and No 1 homecare franchisor is proud to announce it has received the Queen’s Award for Innovation. The Queen’s Award is hugely prestigious and honours the blueprint for care the brand has created, a bespoke model that delivers dignified, quality care in the home for older people. The award from the monarch pays testimony to Home Instead’s relationship-led approach, which includes:

  • Homecare visits that typically last a minimum of one hour or longer.
  • A focus on the value of companionship and trips out alongside practical help with bathing and meal preparation.
  • CAREGivers and clients matched according to common hobbies and interests.

Co-founders Sam and Trevor Brocklebank brought the Home Instead ethos to the UK after experiencing poor care when Trevor’s grandfather Frank needed support. They knew there had to be a better way for an ageing population to receive care, a way to provide a quality experience that helps older people continue to live happily and healthily in the comfort of their own homes as long as possible.

The Queen’s Award recognises the growth of Home Instead – from the pilot office set up in 2005 by the Brocklebanks – to a robust network of 175 offices across the UK. The brand is made up of a family of business owners who are united in its mission: to change the face of ageing.

Today, almost 8,000 people are employed across the national operation giving care and companionship to 8,000 elderly clients.

Trevor Brocklebank, Chief Executive, said: “We are very proud of the difference the ‘Home Instead Way’ has made to older people’s lives and their families in turn over the last decade, a standard of care we believe truly honours the memory of my late grandfather.

“On behalf of our network, we are honoured to receive the Queen’s Award, the pinnacle of business achievement in the UK. Together we provide five million hours of relationship-led homecare each year. We couldn’t do this without our dedicated army of CAREGivers on the ground. This award pays testimony to their devotion to realising our mission and I thank them whole-heartedly for their commitment.”

We’re proud to be home to Home Instead Senior Care – joining so many other award-winning businesses across our neighbourhood.

Lingfield Point shortlisted for two RICS Awards »

IT’S not every day you get a visit from judges from the RICS Awards.

But that’s exactly what happened this week as our buzzing corner of Darlington has been shortlisted in not one, but two, RICS Awards.

It’s the latest of our continued regeneration of former wool factory buildings that’s under the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors property awards’ spotlight.

We’ve reshaped, remodelled and refitted 42,000sq2 of industrial space to create a cool contemporary office space in Darlington for 500 Capita staff.

It’s an amazing place and we’ve had great feedback from everyone who’s seen it.

Being shortlisted is an incredible validation of the vision, design and quality of work that went into creating the fabulous space.

And we have to thank the super skilled teams of a host of well-known partners – including Interserve Construction Limited – who helped make the vision a stunning reality.

The refit is part of the continued regeneration of former wool factory buildings at Lingfield Point that we’ve turned into the most incredible commercial spaces and is further evidence of our commitment to sustainable development and design.

The new Capita centre of excellence boasts an open plan environment with access flooring and energy efficient lighting, heating and cooling systems.

It’s shortlisted in the Building Conservation and Commercial categories of the RICS Awards so fingers crossed that the judges love it as much as we do and decide it’s a worthy winner.

Our fabulous buildings are just one of the things that make Lingfield Point one of the best business hubs in the North East. Others include great online connectivity, 24 hour concierge and security service, onsite canteen and childcare nursery, free parking and superb road and rail links.

It’s not a surprise that good business feels at home here.
