Work on a modern office building on the Exeter Business Park started on site this week, a whole nine years after it first gained planning approval.
Originally designed by LHC back in 2007 for Rok Developments who ceased trading in the recession, Emperor House is being taken forward by Summerfield Developments, and will provide flexible office space and Summerfield has already secured a single occupier for the entire building.
The start of work on site almost a decade after LHC gained planning consent reflects a post-recession surge in the desire for high quality office space in the Exeter area.
The fully serviced, three-storey office building has a gross internal floor space of 2,424 sq m and has been designed with two wings and a central circulation core. Interiors include raised access flooring, divisible floor layouts and suspended ceilings with high frequency lighting.
With ample parking situated immediately outside of the building, Emperor House also has washroom areas with shower facilities, and dedicated cycle parking for the increasing number of people who choose to commute by bicycle.
Situated just off junction 29 of the M5, Exeter Business Park is perfectly placed for access to the city centre and airport as well as links to cities such as Plymouth and Bristol.
The building will also be situated under a mile from the new Exeter Science Park community.
