Over recent years there have been a number of “barn conversion office schemes” undertaken, making good use of redundant agricultural buildings and bringing some commercial life to rural locations.

The development at Borough Hill Farm at Walton-on-Trent is exceptional amongst its peers, and this has been evidenced in the take up of the converted and new build offices, with only one building now remaining available as completion of the development has just been reached.

What makes the scheme unique in the region, is that it incorporates a wide range of environmentally friendly and cost cutting design features in a setting of high quality, thereby giving tenants not only an attractive and accessible working environment, but a very cost effective one in terms of day to day running costs.

Fundamental to the scheme’s unique ticket is the ground source heat pump system which provides all the heating (under floor) hot water and cooling to each property. A heat recovery ventilation system is installed in each building, and there is also solar power which is charged back to the tenants at appreciably less than more traditional means. Along with energy efficient LED lighting and electric car charging point, this adds up to an appreciable cost saving for the occupiers when compared to other similar developments. Typical EPC Ratings are A (8-9) which – on a scale of 0-150 – represents a highly energy efficient development.

This package of attractive features has been seen as a clear advantage to the occupiers who have now taken six of the seven buildings.  Tenants include a regional office for the fostering company By the Bridge Ltd, a new larger office for consultancy Infrastructure Planning and Design Ltd, a relocation for process manufacturing company S3 Process Ltd, new regional offices for Manchester based Leading Edge Engineering Design Ltd (which has already expanded into larger space in the scheme), and offices to house the expanding Papillon PR Ltd.

The only building now available is Forge Barn which provides an open plan ground floor office of 716 sq ft ready to occupy immediately, and incorporating toilet, separate disabled toilet, and fitted kitchen area, along with 3 dedicated car parking spaces.
