Construction of the new regional head office for housing association DCH is progressing at the £210m Skypark development near Exeter.
When it completes in early 2018, developers St Modwen say the building will provide 30,000 sq ft of ‘modern energy efficient head office space’, with easy access onto the nearby junction 29 of the M5 motorway.
DCH is the region’s largest provider of affordable homes and one of the largest employers in Devon and Cornwall, with 22,500 homes and 900 staff.
This new regional head office is one of two premises currently underway at Skypark.
The second neighbouring 17,142 sq ft unit is being built speculatively, with a choice of floor sizes starting from 5,582 sq ft, to meet local demand for high quality commercial space.
It will be available for purchase or rent upon build completion this autumn.
Skypark is a 20-year development which will provide up to 1.4m sq ft of industrial and office space with potential for up to 6,500 jobs long term.
The development also now benefits from Enterprise Zone status which will further enhance the site’s commercial appeal and help to attract more inward investment and business occupiers to the area long term.
