Opus Land is to build the first Midlands-based facility for Storagebase Self Storage as it broadens its UK coverage.
A planning application has been submitted for a £5 million, 112,000 sq ft bespoke design and build warehouse, adjacent to Opus Blueprint at junction 9 of M6 at Wednesbury. Work is due to begin in November – subject to approval – with completion scheduled for June 2013.
Managing director Ben Morris said: “By keeping prices low and quality high, Storagebase has cultivated new markets as well as maintaining its traditional appeal.
“Small businesses find our seven day a week delivery reception and collection service especially useful and we hope that local entrepreneurs contemplating a business start-up will consider this feature to be of particular advantage in these challenging times.”
Opus Land development director, Gareth Williams, added: “We are delighted to be working with Storagebase to develop a successful formula which will provide a blueprint for additional stores throughout the West Midlands and beyond.
“The timing is also ideal as we look to begin work to service the second phase of Opus Blueprint next door which has consent for an additional 475,000 sq ft of high quality industrial and distribution warehouse space. Storagebase will be the best advertisement we could wish for, for the remaining 20 acres.”
