Carver Commercial has let two new high specification office buildings, totalling 10,500 sq ft, with 70 car parking spaces, at Morton Road, Yarm Road Business Park, Darlington, to Darlington Building Society on a 10 year lease. The new two-storey detached office buildings are located opposite Darlington Building Society’s former HQ building and were speculatively developed by our client R Bland Ltd.
R Bland Ltd occupies a third office building on the same site on Morton Road, which it built itself. Phil Bland, Managing Director of R Bland says: “We realised that when Carver Commercial let the ground floor of our building to N Power that there was an appetite in Darlington for high quality office space with plenty of car parking, so we decided to construct a further two buildings. By developing ourselves, and using our own skilled tradespeople, we can build to a very high quality.“We worked closely with Darlington Building Society on the interior fit-out and internal specifications to ensure that everything met their corporate standards.”
