Improvements At The IBTC

Tilia Properties is pleased to be working on a major refurbishment of the main boatshed at the International Boatbuilding Training College in Lowestoft. The college, which runs comprehensive boatbuilding and joinery courses attracting students from all over the world, was in need of a more heat retentive building to boost its energy efficiency.

The Tilia team started by removing all of the old cladding and various fixings and ensuring that the remaining was structure safe and secure, before the installation of new materials could commence.

We’ve now started to erect the new cladding, which is designed to significantly improve the thermal rating of the building by minimising heat loss. The addition of new, more energy efficient, windows and doors will further improve heat efficiency.

Our final task in this project will be to install new roller shutter doors at the front of the boatshed, resulting in a more practical, aesthetically pleasing building.

At Tilia we pride ourselves on maintaining and renovating all of our industrial units to meet current building standards to a high level. We’re sure the IBTC will enjoy the benefits of their new, improved boatshed.

From Hoveton To Leiston

For many years, an historic brake van has been a familiar feature at Tilia’s Hoveton Business Park site, marking its former incarnation as a railway goods yard. However, we’ve decided it’s time that the partially restored carriage should be returned to a railway organisation, where it can be put to good use.

Tilia has much pleasure, therefore, in donating the brake van to the LWR, Leiston Works Railway, a not-for-profit Suffolk based railway preservation society, with the handover scheduled for 31st October. Once the van has been fully restored it will be used to transport visitors to the LWR along the works line.

We will also be allowing the LWR to remove a section of the rails on which the brake van has stood during its time at Hoveton, along with the stop end buffers, which will increase the size of the available staff parking area at the business park.

We’d like to wish the LWR all the best with their restoration project and look forward to hearing progress updates.

Hoveton is just one of business parks where Tilia manage commercial properties. Take a look at our website for news of our other sites

Welcome To Angling Direct

Units 1-2D on the Rackheath Industrial Estate have now been let to the country’s leading fishing tackle supplier Angling Direct.

The units had previously been made separate by the construction of new partition walls, firewall and the addition of cladding, with unnecessary doorways and ramps blocked off, creating great new premises.

Angling Direct supply a wide range of fishing tackle, clothing and equipment suitable for sea, coarse and fly fishing, making this a great one-stop shop for all your angling needs.

Tilia Properties would like to welcome Angling Direct to Rackheath – we’re sure they’ll find it a great business community and a friendly place to be!

A Big Success!

Tilia Properties leases business units to a diverse selection of businesses large and small, across Norfolk and North Suffolk.

One such business is Lisa Angel, based on the Rackheath Industrial Estate, Norwich, which sells a popular range of jewellery and gifts. Lisa started her business from her own home, managing with limited funds, growing into a very successful company that now employs 40 members of staff, with sales currently recorded at £2.2 million.

In recognition of Lisa Angel’s success, David Cameron included a visit to the company on his recent election pledge tour of the area. Cameron has promised to provide more support and Start Up Loans to small businesses, which Lisa Angel believes would have been of benefit to her in the early days of her business.

The Wendover Road unit at Rackheath is just one of many leased by Tilia to a variety of businesses across East Anglia. Offering well-appointed units on such thriving industrial estates as Snetterton, Sea Lake and Hoveton and Beccles Business Parks, in addition to Rackheath, we can provide the ideal premises for your business.
