New 75,000 sq ft NHS blood centre handed over at Barnsley’s Capitol Park
A new NHS blood centre is being handed over at the Capitol Park industrial and distribution development in Dodworth, Barnsley.
NHS Blood and Transplant signed a deal with CDP Marshall, the developer behind the park, for the creation of a new 75,000 sq ft facility last year.
With the construction and fit-out phases now complete, staff are expected to move in next year.
Marshalls worked closely with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and its business support service, Enterprising Barnsley, to bring the scheme to fruition.
A spokesperson for the company said: “We are delighted this high-quality building is now complete.
“I believe the decision to site this bespoke NHS blood centre here is an endorsement of the location of Capitol Park, Barnsley, which is already established as one of the finest mixed-use business parks in South Yorkshire.”
They added: “The site is recognised as a business park location with occupiers having a very significant impact on the local economy, contributing to a very prosperous future for Barnsley.”
With responsibility for blood, organ, tissue and stem cell donation, NHS Blood and Transplant undertakes cutting-edge research and supports hospitals in the region with specialist services.
The new Capitol Park site will house a range of teams and functions, including laboratories, specialist nurses in organ donation and various support services.
Barnsley MBC Cabinet Spokesperson for Place Cllr Roy Miller commented: “We’re delighted to welcome the new NHS Blood and Transplant centre to Capitol Park in Barnsley.
“The purpose-built state of the art facility will provide world class services and training amenities here in the heart of Yorkshire.”
Rebecca Schofield, partner and head of property consultancy Knight Frank’s Yorkshire-based industrial property team, is advising Marshalls.
