TEESAMP (The 'Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park') | Middlebrough | Various | U/C

.
Middlesbrough Council expected to approve the Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park in coming days

AROUND 1,000 jobs could be created in £22.5m plans to deliver an ‘Aberdeen of the North-East’ industry hub, it has been claimed. Middlesbrough Council is expected to approve the Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park (Teesamp) in the coming days. Officials say work to create the development, which will include ten buildings across 180,000sq ft, is earmarked to start early next year.

The new park will lie within the Tees Valley Enterprise Zone, with the site already home to TWI’s £10.8m base that houses the Offshore Wind Validation Centre, known for delivering research services for offshore energy sector operators.

Press Release from TEESAMP . . .

Minister encourages manufacturers to “Make it in Middlesbrough” as work begins on TeesAMP



20th September 2018

Diggers rolled on site – watched by the Business Secretary Greg Clark – to begin work on a transformational scheme set to bring 1,000 high quality manufacturing jobs to the Tees Valley. Greg Clark, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, was on hand at a special ceremony to mark the start of work on TeesAMP – the £55m home of advanced manufacturing in the North. The Cabinet Minister called on manufacturers from around the world to “Make it in Middlesbrough” as he helped put the first spade in the ground at the 11 hectare site.

Representatives from hydraulic engineering specialist Industrial and Marine Hydraulics Ltd (IMH) – the first company to agree tenancy terms for the £55m park – joined senior public and private sector leaders from across the region. TeesAMP is funded by £12.5m from Middlesbrough Council, £7.65m from Tees Valley Combined Authority, £2.3m from the SSI Taskforce and some private investment.

The first phase of the project will deliver 180,000 sq ft of advanced manufacturing space across 17 buildings.

Business Secretary Greg Clark, who was born and raised in Normanby, said: “I’m pleased to be part of the ground-breaking of the Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park which will play a hugely important role in driving forward delivery of our modern Industrial Strategy in the North East while bringing 1,000 highly skilled jobs to the region.” Guests at the launch were shown plans for the extensive development, which aims to address a national shortage of high quality buildings for the advanced manufacturing sector.

The team behind TeesAMP is already in advanced talks with a range of manufacturers that are keen to call the Tees Valley home. Once completed, the first phase of TeesAMP will be home to at least 17 advanced manufacturing companies and it is expected to generate hundreds of millions of gross value added for the Tees Valley economy.

Dave Budd, Mayor of Middlesbrough, said: “TeesAMP is a clear symbol of our ambition, not just for Middlesbrough but for the whole of the Tees Valley.
“This is a development of national significance that will attract major investment, delivering jobs, skills and long-term prosperity.” Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor, said: “TeesAMP is a game-changing opportunity to attract cutting-edge advanced manufacturing firms to the Tees Valley. “The more businesses we have investing, employing, training and exporting in our area the better for local workers. It’s fantastic to see the work beginning to make our ambitious vision a reality.

The "TeesAMP" Project looks like it is going to be a really massive project, and a very interesting one to follow.

So, I have set up this separate 'Project Thread' so that we can follow it more easily, as we normally do for significant construction projects.

It has been listed on this forum's "Development Summary" as Project 33 . . .

There seem to be positive signs NH. Thanks for setting up the thread.

The Welding Institute. expansion of the marine valves business and energy plant would seem to be a good start.

It's a relatively small thing but I hope it feels connected to the town. We seem to build things in isolated pockets. There's a really nice riverside walk and cycle path near there. It would be nice to think this would be connected so that people can walk and cycle to work and be joined up with as yet unbuilt cafes, etc. in Middlehaven,

TeesAMP contractor appointed to ‘Make it in Middlesbrough’

A contractor has been appointed to take TeesAMP Advanced Manufacturing Park in Middlesbrough from blueprint to reality.

Robertson North East has been commissioned to construct phase one of the development and the first units will be ready for occupation in December.

To add to the great news local firm Nationwide Structures, based in Stockton, has been appointed as steel fabricator and around 90 per cent of the 750 tonnes of steel will come from British Steel at Redcar.

Walk past this site most days. Some interesting archaeological excavations going on at the same time as the ground work. It's the former site of blast furnaces. Very interesting.

Sounds interesting. Be great if you get chance to snap a few photos to see how this is progressing.

Significant piece of Middlesbrough history revealed by construction work on new business park

Archaeological investigations are under way after several structures were uncovered during construction work at Middlesbrough's £22.6m Tees Advanced Manufacturing Park (TeesAMP).

Workers digging the foundations of the high-tech 21st Century site have uncovered a series of 19th Century brick structures associated with the Middlesbrough's former ironworks.

Fascinating - it would be nice to think this might be preserved and made a feature within AMP....


Are there any whispers as to which companies might relocate to AMP?

I was past the site today and primary steel is now in the process of being erected. One building's frames appears to be almost fully installed whilst the 2nd structure is just starting. The iron works remains appear to have been backfilled and levelled off for what I imagine will be a slab for further buildings. So anyone with hopes of an incorporation of the remains will have their hopes dashed. It would have quite difficult I would imagine anyway, what was left of the brick was fairly deep within the ground.
