Chi Tevyans or “House of Growth” will join a suite of workspaces commissioned by Cornwall Council. It is the latest Council-led development to meet the needs of businesses who want high quality office space so that they can expand and grow.

Co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, Chi Tevyans will be a three-storey building featuring twelve new office suites, ranging from 86 to 122 m2, providing a total of 1,242m2 of flexible workspace, enabled with ultrafast ‘fibre to the premise’ technology. Its central location, next to Pool Innovation Centre, provides excellent rail and road connections.

Chi Tevyans will address a gap in the supply of grow on workspace in the Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth (CPIR) area. It will provide infrastructure for growing businesses that need new office space to accommodate their growth, and provide a high quality work environment where businesses can create and develop their products and services. The building will be built to BREEAM ‘Excellent’ environmental standard.

The Cornwall Council led project is being built by Kier Construction Ltd with Mace Group Ltd acting as Project Managers. It is funded by a £2.3 million investment from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), matched by £1.9 million from Cornwall Council.

The development will enhance the North Trevenson site, which currently comprises the residential development of Mellior Park, Cornwall College and Pool Innovation centre. It is estimated that once the building is fully occupied, the Chi Tevyans project will support the creation of 40 new jobs in the area and contribute £1.5 million to the local economy.

Construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2020, with the first tenants following in early 2021.
