Latest news from The Stables Business Park: thanking key workers, constructing new offices, staying safe with the return to work, and plans for a pond to enhance the grounds


Tom and Sally Dalley have praised the sacrifices of key workers at the Stables Business Park at Rooksbridge as the Covid-19 continues despite the ending of the Thursday clap for the NHS.

Tom said: “We will continue to praise all key workers and those in the health and care sectors as their work has been vital in keeping the nation going during the Covid-19 crisis. Several key and health workers operate from firms on the Stables Business Park and words cannot express our admiration for the sacrifices as they continue to keep us all safe.”

The park has a number of tenants at the Somerset based business hub including Clarity Cleans, Approved Air and Solutions 42 who are involved in supplying the health and care industries.

Cleanliness and social distancing have become vital ingredients in how the park operates said Sally. She said all the Government’s recommendations on how businesses can reopen and return to normal this summer are strictly adhered to.

The Pond

To further enhance the Stables Business Park’s natural environment plans are afoot to create a pond near the spinney close to the main carpark. Already the park is frequented by a wealth of wild life including deer, buzzards and herons.

“The idea is to reflect the beauty of Somerset’s diverse flora and fauna,” said Tom Dalley of the park, “and a pond which we will call simply The Pond, will hopefully attract ducks and moorhens.”

The Stables Business Park is unusual in its setting as it is surrounded by open countryside and enjoys wide expanses of meadows and trees within its boundaries. As a result because of its location in the countryside and is near to all the main transport links on the A38 near the M5 the park has its own unique motto: relax, you’re at work.

Safety at work due to the Covid-19 crisis

The Stables Business Park is rigidly adhering to the Government’s guidelines for businesses during the Covid-19 crisis. Most businesses on the park either have all or some staff working from home, while those who are key workers and others who must work at the park have had risk assessments carried out to ensure safe social distancing of two metres is maintained at all times.

Any shared facilities such as toilets or kitchens are cleaned frequently including high-contact objects like door handles and hand rails. The park also provides handwashing facilities and hand sanitisers throughout the campus and requests all visitors, tenants and employees to observe to the letter the safe working guidelines.

The Hayloft

The park is expanding with a new build near the entrance with the construction of the 3,000 sq ft Hayloft. Already half of its space has been let suggesting there remains a strong demand for quality office space in the area with firms looking to relocate from the traffic congestion of regional centres.

“Our ethos is to create a place that’s both relaxed due to its setting, and professional with space and all the facilities you’d expect in a modern office park,” said Tom. “Our tenants are with us for years and as they expand they move into the larger units, so from one man bands to major businesses there is a space for all types of enterprises.”

The Hayloft has its own carpark and individually controlled ceiling mounted air conditioning and cooling which maintains a constant ambient temperature throughout. This also helps to maximise the use of the space available plus it also has its own access controlled entry system.

Built to exacting standards with a pitched tile roof the accommodation is a flexible space for tenants to create their own layout of meeting rooms, individual offices or open plan work spaces. It also includes toilets and modern kitchen facilities along with perimeter dado trunking and full access to the leased 100/100Mbps fibre line.
