Former Lincoln concrete factory makes way for business park

Lincoln-based building service providers Stirlin Developments Limited is embarking on its largest developments scheme to date — a six acre business park in Saxilby.

Riverside Enterprise Park will be a comprehensive redevelopment of the former Concrete Products factory and garden centre site at Saxilby, adjacent the A57.

Existing buildings on the site cover almost 40,000 sq ft and there are plans to extend by at least the same again with hopes to boost to the local economy in West Lindsey.

Existing occupiers on earlier Stirlin Developments at Saxilby include Print Talk, Spence Accounting and Torque Engineering. Stirlin are also about to complete and hand over new premises to Callow Retail Limited.

Chartered Surveyors Hodgson Elkington are marketing the scheme for Stirlin Developments, and partner Dan Race said: “We have just completed the acquisition of this six acre site and are already talking to potential occupiers.

“The development will comprise the refurbishment of the existing buildings and the construction of new premises.”

James Kirby, Managing Director of Stirlin Developments added: “We are completing our third phase on the nearby Saxilby Enterprise Park and this was a logical move for us.

“This will give us the potential to offer larger buildings with outdoor space for vehicle parking, loading and storage. We are expecting strong demand.”

Banks Long & Co acted on behalf of the vendor in the sale. Director William Wall said: “The property generated a high level of interest due to its prominence and accessibility to the A57 from Lincoln to the A1.

“We are sure that Stirlin Developments will deliver another high quality scheme, in line with their nearby success at Saxilby Enterprise Park.”
