THE PROPERTY has been pre-let by Ipswich based eco-friendly construction materials supplier Bauder – although this has not officially been confirmed by Gateway 14 Ltd – a wholly owned subsidiary of Mid Suffolk District Council nor development partner Jaynic.

Planning  documents  submitted to the council for approval  indicated that Bauder is the new occupant. The unit will be delivered via a freehold development agreement by property developer Jaynic and, subject to planning approval, will be built in the summer.

Gateway 14 Ltd chairman Sir Christopher Haworth, said: “We are delighted more companies are looking at relocating to Gateway 14. Together with The Range distribution hub and plans progressing for the new skills and innovation centre, people can see how Gateway 14 is taking shape and start to understand its significance for the region.”

All the buildings on Gateway 14 include EV charging, LED lighting, solar PV, smart energy systems and rainwater harvesting and target a minimum Very Good BREEAM rating as well as delivering low carbon and net zero solutions.

Accessibility through and around the development is a key feature with significant walking and cycling routes being integrated along with access to public transport links and local amenities.

Biodiversity on the site is also a priority, with high-quality landscaping, green corridors and nesting boxes all being introduced across the site to support not only the wildlife and ecology but also to create a vibrant, attractive, and healthy working environment for employees.

Agents for the scheme are Savills and Avison Young.
