A Coventry law firm is helping a farmer to develop more than crops at a new eco-friendly business centre on the outskirts of Warwickshire.
Band Hatton, based at Station Square, Coventry, has helped Michael Stanhope and his family to let office space at the Alma Park Business and Conference Centre, in Wibtoft, near Lutterworth.
The family, who have farmed at nearby Alma House Farm for more than 200 years, converted 12 redundant farm buildings into 25,000 sq ft of office accommodation to create the business park.
The environmentally friendly development makes use of original bricks and tiles and is heated entirely by a woodchip burner.
Haydn Jones, partner and head of corporate at Band Hatton, said: "Alma Park Business and Conference Centre is an impressive example of a business park that takes as little as possible from the environment whilst providing companies with the accommodation they need.
"The centre appeals to a diverse range of businesses and we have already helped the Stanhope family to let seven out of the 15 units."
The site includes conference facilities, free car parking, a cafe and a nursery that is due to open in October.
Mr Stanhope said: "We decided to make use of some redundant buildings on the farm and have received help with redeveloping them through DEFRA and its Rural Enterprise Scheme."
