Project Overview

In 2018, Total Group was entrusted by Hortons’ to oversee the design and construction of Asparagus Point, a state-of-the-art industrial development spanning 54,450 square feet. This project marked the latest addition to the esteemed Vale Park industrial estate in Evesham.

As part of the project, Total Group was responsible for managing all aspects, including the design, build, drainage, and external works. The aim was to create a modern and functional space that would cater to the growing demand for industrial facilities in the local market of Evesham and beyond.

One of the key advantages of Asparagus Point is its strategic location within Vale Park. Situated along the A46, a major arterial road, the development offers easy access to transportation networks, making it an ideal choice for businesses looking for convenient connectivity.

At Total Group, we understand the importance of creating spaces that meet the unique needs of businesses. With our expertise in design and construction, we were able to deliver a development that not only offers ample industrial space but also incorporates essential features for enhanced functionality.

Our team worked closely with Hortons’ to ensure that Asparagus Point met the highest standards of quality and design. We employed innovative techniques and materials to create a sustainable and energy-efficient development that aligns with modern industry requirements.

Asparagus Point is designed to accommodate a range of industries, from manufacturing to logistics and distribution. The flexible layout allows for customisation, enabling businesses to optimize the space according to their specific operational needs.

Throughout the design and construction process, Total Group prioritised efficiency, safety, and sustainability. We implemented robust drainage systems to prevent any potential issues and ensure the longevity of the development. Additionally, the external works were meticulously planned to create a visually appealing and functional environment.

By choosing Total Group for the design and build of Asparagus Point, Hortons’ made a decision based on trust and expertise. Our track record of successful projects and commitment to delivering exceptional results made us the preferred partner for this significant development.

As a result of our collaboration, Asparagus Point now stands as a testament to Total Group’s dedication to excellence in the construction industry. The development not only provides much-needed industrial space but also contributes to the growth and prosperity of the local market in Evesham and the surrounding areas.

The Total Group approach

Community engagement

Prior to project commencement, Total Regen contacted neighbouring businesses and residents to outline the nature of the upcoming works, providing 24/7 contact details for enquiries and feedback. Clear signage alerted pedestrians to the temporary closure of an existing footpath, with an alternative footpath used as the diverted route.

Works comprised construction of a 39,450 sq. ft L-shaped, 8-unit terrace and a standalone 15,000 sq. ft. commercial building. Per the client’s vision, eight units were speculatively built, with the development comprising a total of eight steel frame units ranging in size from 3,500 to 6,000 square feet – and up to 39,450 sq ft if combined.

Future-proofing – a ‘beyond handover’ approach

Total Regen worked closely with Hortons’ Estate to maximise the lifecycle of the development and reduce long-term maintenance and operational costs through the implementation of sustainable materials and features, including solar panelled roofing. In addition, all units benefit from a 25-year cladding and insulation warranty.

Each unit is equipped with an electric roller shutter door, as well as three- phase electricity supply, which will efficiently and comfortably accommodate the varying power requirements of future occupants.

Supporting local businesses

Throughout the project, Total Regen engaged with and supported various local businesses, including a skip hire firm and a groundworks subcontractor. In addition, the services and skills of local agency staff were used where possible.

The project was completed in line with the client’s specification, and was unveiled to potential investors at an opening ceremony at Vale Park West in early February 2019.

 
 

Key project achievements

SUPPORTING LOCAL BUSINESSES – Total Regen believe heavily in supporting the communities in which we work. Throughout the project, we engaged with various local businesses, including a skip hire firm and a ground works subcontractor. In addition, the services and skills of local agency staff were used where possible.

FUTURE-PROOFING – A BEYOND HANDOVER APPROACH – Total Regen worked closely with Hortons’ Estate to future-proof the development and reduce long-term maintenance and operational costs through the implementation of sustainable materials and features, including solar panelled roofing. In addition, all units benefit from a 25- year cladding and insulation warranty.
