AN office complex is set for expansion after becoming fully let in just over a year.

Wynyard Park House – on the 700-acre Wynyard Business Park – has attracted so many companies it has filled 10,000 sq ft of space.

Now, the 10,000 sq ft project is set to expand by another 5,000 sq ft after 12 companies moved in over the last year alone.

Matt Johnson, Wynyard Park’s development manager, said: “To become fully let and then to be expanding in such a short space of time is an amazing achievement, particularly given the tough economic times that we have been living through of late.”

Wynyard Park House provides its resident firms with a package which includes all rent, rates, service charges, furniture, telephone lines and internet connection.

They also have access to a conference area and can also choose to add administration and concierge services.

The building’s facilities also include a plasma screen television and fully staffed reception area, the Java Café bistro and the Wynyard Rooms, an exclusive function room venue.

Elizabeth Eddy, director of Velvet Communications which is based within Wynyard Park House, said: “When looking to move into a new commercial workspace, there was only one option I considered in the Tees Valley and that was Wynyard Park.

“Aside from the fact that it has an ideal central location with easy access to the A1 and A19, the quality of the office accommodation can’t be beaten and there is a real sense of community here.”

The news that Wynyard Park House is fully let comes hot on the heels of Huntsman’s recent decision to re-locate to Wynyard Business Park and create a new global business centre.

The company, one of the world’s leading chemical companies, has taken a 54,000 sq ft high-quality building at Lion Court and it is also creating 31,000 sq ft of innovative new laboratory space.

Wynyard Park Limited is a joint venture company between JC Musgrave Limited and Helios Properties plc.

The company was formed in 2005 with the purpose of creating the high-class 700-acre mixed use development, Wynyard Park.
