Main infrastructure work underway at Suffolk Park
Jaynic, the developer of the 114-acre business, manufacturing and distribution project at Suffolk Park, Bury St Edmunds has awarded the main infrastructure contract to open up the development to Ipswich-based Jackson Civils.
Construction is underway and set for completion in March 2018.
The announcement follows the opening of the new Eastern Relief road from Junction 45 of the A14.
The contract includes earthworks and the creation of the main estate road from Lady Miriam Way to the Sybil Andrew’s School roundabout on Rougham Tower Avenue plus the installation of utilities with foul and surface water drainage into the site.
The total cost of the two contracts is more than £3m. A separate landscaping contract will be let shortly.
Jaynic project director Simon Wilson said: “Jacksons is regionally based but part of a national group and we chose the firm because it is very professional and totally understands infrastructure.
“Jaynic’s proactive approach to constructing the spine road so soon after the link to the A14 has been completed brings key infrastructure and servicing into the wider 114-acre site.
“This enables early development of the whole site for a range of uses from 2,000 sq ft to 750,000 sq ft far faster than competing sites in the region.”
