DKS Architects has been chosen to design a state-of-the-art business park in Stokesley.
The scheme is intended to encourage more companies to operate from the North Yorkshire town with each building designed to the individual needs of the client.
Office space is commonly designed speculatively, with most clients having to make do with what's available. All companies operate differently, so when it comes to finding the right building, one size does not fit all.
This new expansion of the Stokesley Business Park gives companies the opportunity to be involved in the design and layout of their own buildings, making sure they get more efficient office space specific to the way they work.
Earlier this year, DKS Architects won the prestigious Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) award in the commercial category for the design of Armstrong Richardson's innovative offices in Stokesley Business Park.
Due to the success of their own building, Armstrong Richardson the land owner has employed DKS to master-plan a further development by designing over 8,000sqm of commercial and industrial buildings on an adjacent site.
The buildings will be built using a consistent palette of materials and will be designed with a boulevard layout of landscaping running through the centre. Early indicative designs show a variety of contemporary style office buildings plus an area of separate combined office and warehousing.
Construction is anticipated for February 2009 with the first units expected to be up and running by Autumn/Winter 2009.
