Brass Monkey Health Ltd, which supplies ice baths to individuals as well as upscale spas and hotels, has moved from Leeds East Airport, Church Fenton, to take up a ten-year lease at Unit 25 Ash Way VI.
The lease, along with the recent lease of the 15,070 square foot Unit 23, means four units totaling 64,125 square feet of the nine-unit, 95,409 square foot net-zero carbon project are occupied. Five smaller units ranging in size from 4,031 square feet to 13,056 square feet remain available.
Environmentally and energy efficient features include roof-mounted photovoltaic panels providing free electricity, acoustic water leak detection systems, sensor-controlled PIR (passive infrared) LED lighting, office air circulation and climate control systems, and electric vehicle charging stations in a negative EPC rating (Energy Performance Certificate), which confirms that the units are carbon neutral for a typical user.
Founded in 2021 by brothers Dan and Dale Bosomworth, Brass Monkey produces a range of ice baths and ice dives in three sizes and 700 material and color combinations. The company has an annual turnover of £4.5 million and employs 35 people. All design, manufacturing, retail and UK delivery is carried out in-house. The company will open in Singapore this fall and in the United Arab Emirates and the United States in 2024.
Brass Monkey innovation director Dale Bosomworth said: “We were looking for a 10,000 sq ft unit nearby. A plus point is the energy efficiency and the possibility of expanding with a mezzanine. Thorp Arch Estate suits our growing team and its proximity to the motorway network makes it useful for deliveries and local suppliers.
“Several studies now link exposure to cold water with a variety of health benefits, such as: B. strengthening resilience, supporting longevity and supporting recovery from illness or injury. We are the only ice bath manufacturer in the world to offer ice sheets that enable an experience in temperatures down to zero degrees.”
Two-fifths of Ash Way VI, which also offers access to the estate’s superfast broadband network, was pre-let during the 11-month construction work, which was completed in January.
The valuer at Wharfedale Property Management, which manages the property for owner Patrizia Hanover Property Unit Trust, Chris Hilton, said: “We are delighted to have let Units 23 and 25 in Ash Way IV and to have secured Brass Monkey have.”
“The rapid leasing of four units in the current difficult economic situation justifies the speculative development and shows that green sense makes business sense for both the property owner Patrizia Hanover Property Unit Trust and the new residents.”
“The project’s high environmental standards and energy efficiency are a major draw and interest in the remaining five units continues to be strong.”
