Manse Opus secure double shortlisting at Insider West Midlands Property Awards

Insider has recently released the shortlist for the West Midlands Property Awards, and Manse Opus is celebrating a double shortlisting!

Manse Opus successfully secured planning for a new, state-of-the-art office development at Prospero Ansty Park on behalf of occupier, Cadent Gas, and funding partner Aviva Investors. McLaren Construction Group worked hard to deliver the new premises to a fantastic standard.

As various leases expired at a number of Cadent’s sites in Coventry and Leicester, Cadent approached Manse Opus to create a bespoke premises at The Park. Manse Opus worked with Cadent to create a modern and flexible working environment to help improve collaboration across the teams.

The development completed in March 2022 and the Cadent team started its phased moves into the 94,000 sq.ft premises shortly afterwards.

This deal is one of the UK’s largest out-of-town lettings and was designed with sustainability at heart. The scheme has been awarded a BREEAM Very Good rating and will fulfil Cadent’s aspirations to reduce their carbon emissions. The design included significant provision of photovoltaic panels on the roof and incorporated in to the brise soleil, rainwater harvesting, optimisation of natural light via a light well, EV charging points, extensive landscaping and sustainable drainage systems.
In addition to the stand-out sustainable initiatives above, 85% of all fit-out materials were produced and manufactured from within a 100-mile radius, and have included an element of recycled content where possible.

This deal represents one of the most significant lettings in the West Midlands. Manse Opus worked tirelessly to bring this development to completion and are pleased to have added another market-leading sustainable development to The Park.
