The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) has selected Countryside Properties’ Skyline 120 Business Park at Great Notley, Braintree to house its new Special Operations (HART) facility. The Trust has forward purchased a new 2,114 sq m (22,760 sq ft) Ambulance Station on 2.15 acres.
The HART (Hazardous Area Response) team is part of a critical national network which has specially recruited and trained personnel to provide ambulance response to major and specialist incidents; as well as being part of the normal ambulance provision within the east of England.
The scheme was granted full planning consent by Braintree District Council last month and work on the new facility is due to commence in May with completion at the end of 2012. It should therefore be fully operational early next year.
Oskan Edwardson, Associate Director of Special Operations for EEAST said: “We are delighted to be locating this new facility in Braintree, which will enable us to provide even better and more specialist health care to the local community and across the region.”
Mark Chatham, Commercial Marketing Director at Countryside Properties said: “The East of England Ambulance Trust has selected Skyline 120 for this important new facility due to the site’s strategic location in the heart of the A120 corridor, at the junction of the A120 and A131, providing rapid access to Stansted Airport, the ports, the M11 and the national motorway network.
“Our strategy of providing expanding businesses with new purpose built freehold facilities on this strategic site has delivered some 40,877 sq m (440,000 sq ft) of new build industrial/warehouse and office accommodation for a wide range of leading companies in Essex and Hertfordshire. With only 3.8 acres now remaining at Skyline 120, close to the entrance to the scheme, further opportunities are becoming limited.”
Coke Gearing, Glenny and Joscelyne Chase acted for Countryside Properties PLC and are joint agents on the scheme. The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust was represented by RHH Associates and SC Moulder Ltd.
