Construction Underway for new £8.5m Festool HQ in Bury St Edmunds
Construction has now commenced on the power tools manufacturer, Festool's, new £9.5 million UK headquarters building at Suffolk Business Park. The building will be the first to be constructed on the new gateway development to the east of Bury St Edmunds and will spearhead the growing number of businesses choosing to base their operations on the prominent 57 acre multi-purpose Business Park.
Barnes Construction is building the 2,800 sq mtr, two-storey headquarters which includes a warehouse, office space, demonstration and meeting rooms, as well as a service centre, cafe and show zone. When completed in Spring 2019, Festool's 40 UK office-based employees will move from Saxham Business Park to their new home on the Suffolk Business Park.
The building has been designed to be an aesthetically pleasing, high quality development which achieves a BREEAM rating of excellent and will be completely electric and powered by photovaltaic cells on the roof.
