Glencar Construction have been appointed to two Access Self Storage industrial schemes with a combined contract value of over £8m.

The first, for Birchal Limited Partnership, will see them carrying out a 75,000 sq ft extension to the existing Access Self Storage unit in Northampton. The project is due to start on site at the end of August, subject to planning approval, and will include demolition, basement construction and store extension, as well as extensive refurbishment works to the existing storage unit.

The second project is for Rebus Holdings Ltd and involves the design and conversion of an existing office building into a mixture of self storage accommodation and serviced offices. The refurbishment includes the introduction of two new goods lifts from lower ground level to roof level for the future introduction of an additional floor level to the building. External works include the reconfiguration of the existing façade to introduce two new entrance areas and also reconfiguration of the existing parking areas. All works are to be undertaken while the existing tenant is occupying an area of the lower ground floor level.

Glencar are due on site in September this year and the project is due for completion in April 2019.
