Works at the Prospero Ansty Meggitt facility are now underway and a timelapse camera has been installed at the site. Once complete it will provide the international aerospace and defence engineering group, Meggitt PLC’s new 490,000 sq ft headquarters facility. This is the first phase of the c. 2m sq ft development of advanced manufacturing, research and accommodation at Prospero Ansty, and final completion is anticipated by October 2019.
The Meggitt facility is part of the wider Prospero Ansty park, which comprises 196 acres, uniquely located just six miles to the north east of Coventry city centre, at the centre of the UK’s manufacturing heartland. The scheme is being developed by Manse Opus who were appointed by Rolls-Royce to lead the development and regeneration of surplus land owned by Rolls-Royce. When complete, the industrial park will provide new, modern manufacturing buildings that will sit alongside the retained Rolls-Royce operations, and prestigious occupiers such as MTC, and Sainsbury’s.
David Mitchell and Richard Smith joint managing directors of the Manse Opus joint venture commented, “This deal with Meggitt is the largest in the region to our knowledge for many many years, a reflection on the quality of the location, what has been created by Homes England at Ansty Park and what Manse Opus is in the process of creating on the surplus Rolls-Royce land.”
