HellermannTyton Phase 1 & 2
HellermannTyton is a global manufacturer of electrical management systems with three UK bases. In 2009 ADG commenced working with their Plymouth-based team to develop designs for new premises on a development site within the International Medical and Technology Park, Derriford.
This Phase 1 building would contain manufacturing, warehousing, R&D, office and staff welfare spaces as well as a sizeable service yard and on-site parking.
A requirement of this former SWRDA site was that anything constructed should meet stringent BREEAM standards, and as a result the office and ancillary spaces are rated ‘Excellent’ and the production areas are rated ‘Very Good’.
Phase 1 was completed in 2013, however, HellermannTyton envisaged a need to develop beyond the initial Phase 1 site from project inception. And, so it was no surprise when in 2014 we began discussions about developing a further similar-sized facility on the neighbouring site, also owned by them.
Phase 2 was completed early in 2023 and houses further production space, warehousing and associated admin and staff support areas.
Both sites have been designed to deal with the requirement for HGV access and goods yards, and considerable site level changes.
Both sites also include extensive, high quality perimeter landscaping designed by Rathbone Partnership.
The two buildings are different in design but utilise a common design language to create a cohesive appearance when viewed from the street.
The project design team were retained for both phases of work and include JLL as Project Manager, Airey & Coles as Structural Engineer and Amber Consulting as M&E Engineers.
HellermannTyton are an important employer in Plymouth, and we have been very proud to support them in their continued growth and improvement.
After completion, HellermannTyton phase 2 was awarded ‘Best Large Commercial Project’ at the regional Local Authority Building Control (LABC) award ceremony.
The phase 2 project was then entered into the national awards held in London.
