Langage Business Park
The Phase 2 expansion of Plymouth City Council’s Langage Business Park is a hi-tech, hi-spec commercial workspace designed to offer a range of unit sizes between 2,000sq ft and 30,000sq ft. The nine-unit Phase One was completed in 2015 and the entire 30,000sq ft high block was quickly snapped up by expanding upmarket food producer Dartmouth Foods Ltd.
Ryearch, a Devon-based construction company, was the main contractor to build the Phase 2 development, with the brief to develop high-quality buildings incorporating many modern build techniques and sustainable features, providing a superb working environment. The project was completed in Spring 2018.
The Langage Business Park phases are part of a city council investment portfolio worth more than £130 million.
MEP Systems Ltd were awarded the contract for the M&E (mechanical and electrical) element of the Phase 2 new build development at Langage Business Park. As part of this package there was a requirement for the supply, installation and commissioning of Solar PV arrays onto each of the 6 planned units. IU Energy were awarded this element of the project as the specialists in the renewables marketplace.
This was a relatively large project and had to be synchronised across all six structures with the main developers and the primary M&E subcontractor. An additional consideration was the secure mounting onto the roof sheet to provide resistance to wind loadings.
