The South’s leading building and civil engineering firm Mildren Construction Ltd has completed work at the Cobham Gate Industrial Estate in Ferndown.

The project undertaken for client Glenbeigh Developments Ltd, provides the largest employment space of 405,000 sq/ft set in a 28 acre site on the highly sought after Ferndown Estate on the edge of the New Forest.

Cobham Gate is accessed from Cobham Road, the main spine road serving the estate. Ferndown Industrial Estate is a popular choice for corporates largely due to it being strategically so well located. It has direct access to the A31, the main road through the New Forest linking the areas of Bournemouth and Poole with Southampton and Portsmouth via the M27 and to London via the M3.

Mildren were the successful applicants of the three phase £7.7m site through a vigilant competitive Tender process.

The first phase required full site infrastructure preparation, including earthworks facilitating the diversion of services and natural watercourse, and the construction of a site access/spine road.  Incoming services, foul & surface water drainage and soft landscaping were also included in the works.

The second part consisted of the construction of a new signalised junction and  internal  access road onto the site from the very busy Cobham Road, where road widening and service diversions were also required.

The final phase saw the construction of a new 60,000 sq/ft warehouse constructed for incoming occupant DPD, which comprises fully fitted out offices, external storage facilities and car park areas for the personnel.

A spokesman for Glenbigh Developments Ltd said: “We are delighted with the finished product.  Following a thoroughly tested planning process, Mildren have provided the largest single employment site in this district within the highly popular Ferndown Estate.  They have provided a safe and accessible facility delivered with the professionalism we have come to expect from such a specialist company.”

Mildren have become one of the South’s leading construction and civil engineering firms by combining industry expertise and professionalism with unrivalled local knowledge and a willingness to think innovatively and ambitiously.
