The Heath is looking forward to an exciting New Year with 2015 offering opportunities for start-up or established companies to become part of a thriving business community set in a secure location with 24/7 access for resident businesses.
Rapid growth of many residents located at the award-winning Heath Business and Technical Park in Runcorn, and the unique flexibility of facilities which allows firms to transfer and relocate around the 60-acre park, means that high-quality laboratory and office space has been freed up and is ready for immediate occupation.
At the same time a new build programme has been taking place at the park, owned and operated by SOG Ltd, which enables residents to transfer out of multi-occupancy buildings into an exclusive facility on the site with their own front door – meeting the increased demand for additional space as businesses grow and expand.
With excellent road and rail links, extensive free car parking, flexible space and terms – and in an area of the North West renowned for its access to highly skilled personnel – The Heath is an ideal location for business and offers an unrivalled level of support services to its customers.
Lesley Lunt, SOG’s Sales and Marketing Manager, says: “At The Heath we are uniquely placed to provide start-up or growing companies with immediate access to very high quality laboratory and office space which our technicians can redesign and adapt to bespoke requirements. At the same time we have the land and capability, if required, to design and construct cost-effective, purpose-built facilities that can be operational within nine months from concept to completion.
“It’s a formula that has proved immensely popular with our residents because businesses locating here can start work virtually immediately and then have the flexibility to seamlessly expand operations within our site without interrupting their business flow. We also operate a licence system at The Heath which allows businesses to shrink or expand their space requirements in line with their business needs, which is something our residents have also found really reassuring.”
The Heath is also ideally situated to meet demands for space from organisations working on the Mersey Crossing programme who require a base to operate from which is located close to the construction site.
Lunt adds: “These are very exciting times and there is a real buzz among the companies based here. One of the other key things that sets The Heath apart is our skills base where our clients have access to SOG’s vast range of specialist support technicians, offering a range of highly specialised services that you don’t find in the’ Yellow Pages’ such as precision engineering and scientific glassblowing. We have experts just along the corridor who our residents can talk to for expert advice and support.”
The Heath currently accommodates around 170 businesses employing nearly 2000 people. Apart from the very specialist technical support available, residents can also access a full range of facilities normally associated with premier league business operations including a dedicated conference centre, lecture theatre, restaurant, business lounge, events suite, gymnasium and fitness studio, shops, free car parking and an adjacent day nursery.
The Heath is also easily accessible for universities in Liverpool, Manchester and Chester – so is an ideal location for university spin-outs.
