Boost for Borders as Innovation Park works begin

Boost for Borders as Innovation Park works begin

Work has begun on a new business park which will provide a major economic boost to the Scottish Borders and has the potential to create over 380 jobs.

Ogilvie Construction started site operations for the ambitious Borders Innovation Park in Tweedbank this week, which will see four sites developed initially as part of the first phase. Work had originally been due to begin in March but was postponed until this month due to the Coronavirus lockdown, in line with the Scottish Government’s roadmap for the return of the construction industry.

The £29million development aims to deliver much needed high quality business space in the Borders, stimulate business growth and improve inward investment opportunities. As well as predictions that the new park will help create over 380 jobs, it is estimated it will generate Gross Added Value (GVA) of £350million over 30 years and offer a £16 return for every £1 spent.

The Borders Innovation Park is a key component of the Tweedbank Masterplan, a transformational prospectus which has the potential to create over 1,400 jobs across various sectors. It includes a number of ambitious ideas to encourage people to live, learn, visit and work in the Borders, as well as attract inward investment through public and private sector funding. The first phase of the Innovation Park is expected to be completed by August 2021, with Ogilvie Construction also contracted to complete phase two of the project. A third and final phase of the Innovation Park is also scheduled to take place, with revised completion dates for phases two and three being finalised.
