Glasshouse Business Park, Wigan


We have worked with longstanding client The Derwent Group, to prepare proposals for the redevelopment of the Glasshouse Business Park, Wigan.

We have developed proposals for 8 commercial units, totalling 121,500sqft on the 9.7acre employment site. The commercial units span from 2,000sqft to 105,000sqft offering a diverse selection of units attractive to a range of occupiers.

The proposed development has been sensitively designed to respect the local context. The external appearance of the large commercial unit has graduated horizontal colour banding from ground to sky, to soften the development’s visual impact on the neighbouring green belt. Attractive tree planting and a generous landscape buffer is also incorporated to screen views of the buildings and help preserve the existing landscape character.

Our role has also seen us develop plans for an adjacent 1.5 acre plot to accommodate a 19,500 sqft Aldi and a 1,800 sqft coffee drive-thru to bring important new amenities to the local area.
