Work starts on new headquarters premises

Family-owned high tech instrument business, Norwich Instrument Services Ltd, is setting its sights on expansion with the construction of new facilities on Broadland Business Park.

The Norwich based company has completed the purchase of the two acre Plot 14 site from the Lothbury Broadland Unit Trust and the construction of a new 25,000 sq ft (2325 sq m) headquarters premises has just commenced, with completion set for April 2020.

The company’s 40 employees will all be based in the new facilities.

James Allen, partner at Broadland Business Park’s joint agents, Roche Chartered Surveyors, said: “NIS is an excellent independent Norwich business working in a niche sector. They have grown from just six to 40 employees and have been seeking new premises to continue their expansion programme”. 

“Their choice of Broadland Business Park was influenced by the prestigious address, superb location adjacent to the A47 and A1270 Broadland Northway and the very wide range of facilities for staff, including cafés, local shops, car parking, foot and cycle paths, public transport and the mature landscaped environment that the Park affords. These on-site facilities reflect the critical mass which Broadland Business Park now has, with over one million sq ft of occupied commercial floorspace. Plot 14 has also provided NIS with a serviced freehold site at the right cost.”

Broadland Business Park has recently released another 40 acres for bespoke freehold or leasehold design and build developments from 10,000 to 100,000 sq ft or plot sales from one acre up to 20 acres.
