Based upon successful delivery of the North Devon Enterprise Centre (Node) at One Enterprise Road in Barnstaple which was completed in 2021, ISG were selected to deliver the NODE Expansion project which started on site in June 2022.

Within the first year of operating, Node had already let 64% of its 37 offices after just eight months. The second phase expansion will bring an extra 564 sq. metres of flexible office space across the ground and first floor and additional parking provision to create an extra 48 carparking spaces.

Design and build of the RIBA Stage 4 onwards project involves both advance site-wide infrastructure works and the build-out of the Enterprise Centre and associated plot works.

Designed to look identical to the existing building, Devon County Council requested that ISG design and construct the extension in spirit of the BREEAM Excellent standard of the original building.

Whilst undertaking the original Node project, ISG held collaborative design workshops with the architect to gain an in-depth understanding of how the business park would develop. With the development of RIBA stage 3 design to provide a RIBA stage 4 solution for a future proofed development, ISG incorporated technical design features to allow easy expansion/extension of the Node building’s structure and infrastructure.
