Opus Land spend £10 million on construction during August alone….

Sep 11, 2019

As the company progresses through its 20th year we have paused to reflect on where the company currently stands. We are pleased to report that, against a political backdrop of uncertainty, Opus Land is somewhat bucking the trend and is busier than ever. In August alone the company spent over £10 million on construction of the projects on which they are currently on site. These projects equate to nearly 1,000,000 sq.ft. of accommodation currently under construction including:

  • 440,000 sq.ft. comprising a highly bespoke B2 facility for Meggitt PLC in Ansty with a further 150 + acres of prime development land available for occupiers;
  • 120,000 sq.ft. of B2/B8 industrial facility just 1.5 miles away from Junction 2 of the M5 in Oldbury, a market starved of quality accommodation;
  • 135,000 sq.ft. of B2/B8 industrial facility directly onto Junction 10 of the M42;
  • 300,000 sq.ft. across 2 units of B2/B8 at Kingswood Lakeside, Cannock fronting onto the M6 Toll reaching practical completion shortly.

The team are also busy finalising legals on a further three developments across the commercial sector to come forward in the near future alongside working through the planning process on many others. We believe it is Opus Land’s detailed and sensitive approach to development that ensures that the company continues, well into their 20th year, to go from strength to strength working with long term partners on the journey.
