Connectivity

Hawke Ridge Business Park enjoys an unusually high level of connectivity with fibre connections to both BT and Virgin services immediately available giving a choice of provider, speed, contention and reliability. From the earliest design phase of the business park HPH have worked with BT and Virgin as the importance of connectivity to business development is recognised as paramount. The participation of telecoms providers to the requirements of the site’s infrastructure and for individual buildings will help ensure installation costs are minimised and speed of installation improved.

A newly installed network of underground ducting within the road infrastructure enables individual buildings and occupiers to be connected directly using fibre or copper to existing cabinets / junction nodes immediately adjacent to the business park entrance.

Virgin Media Business

Virgin offer four differing broadband services subject to user requirements: 50/100/200/300Mbs using Superfast and Ultra-fast fibre connections to their own national fibre network.

Gas Service

Wales and West Utilities provide the business park with a medium pressure gas supply that currently terminates in a gas governor housing. The gas supply network will be extended via the road infrastructure to supply individual plots. An allowance has been made for the demand of gas to each unit based on its potential usage. Listed below are those allowances.

Industrial unit including offices (above 20,000 sq. ft.): 90kWh/m²
Industrial unit including offices (below 20,000 sq. ft.): 80kWh/m²
Small offices (without comfort cooling): 90kWh/m²
Small offices (with comfort cooling): 80kWh/m²
Large retail unit (above 15,000 sq. ft.): 100kWh/m²

Gas availability is subject to individual application for each building as it is constructed. The gas pipe network will be sized to provide an assumed standard level of supply based on the above allowances.

Surface Water

The Environment Agency in line with the Flood Risk Assessment for the outline planning consent for Hawke Ridge Business Park confirmed the Greenfield run-off calculation for each of the development areas of the Business Park to the North and South of Mill Lane. The rates of permitted run off into the Bitham Brook being restricted to 22l/s to the North and 23.5l/s to the South respectively for a 1 in 1 year storm event, rising to 53l/s and 57l/s for the 1 in 100 year storm event.

Based on the total developable areas this equates to a discharge rate of 3.82l/s/ha. to be applied on a pro-rata basis appropriate to the individual North site development areas and 4.08l/s/ha. for the pro rata apportionment for plots on the Southern site. Surface water is to be attenuated within the development plot boundaries to ensure these discharge rates are not exceeded into the main carrier sewers within the development access roads which will be provided by Hawke Ridge Business Park Ltd.

Foul Drainage

The foul water sewers are designed and constructed to use a gravity connection towards the recently constructed FW pumping station located in the south east corner of the northern development area. The FW pumping station has been designed and constructed in accordance with Wessex Water requirements and is subject to adoption under a Section 104 Agreement application.

The sewer sizes will be 150mm diameter. The design and construction of the foul water sewers shall be in accordance with the current edition of Sewers for Adoption at the time of design.

Based on the development areas estimated to be accommodated under B1, B2 and B8 uses, preliminary hydraulic calculations indicate that the Business Park could generate flows in the region of 15.3l/s. The flows have been based on criteria specified in “Sewers for Adoption 7th Edition” and given the proposed commercial/industrial use is currently unknown, include an allowance for “wet” industrial processes, however subject to confirmation of business type, should an allowance for a “wet-industry” be required, it is intended that attenuation within the plot extents will be required.

Therefore and in advance of any specific requirement for a particular site an allowance of 1.33l/s/ha. is to be applied on a pro-rata basis to each individual development area.
