Plans to turn "underutilised" office into construction warehouse

Thursday 27 April 2023

An "under-utilised" office building in St. Saviour will become a warehouse for construction materials to help a "growing business", if planning approval is granted.

Construction material firm Quantum Building Supplies currently operates at smaller premises in Rue des Prés Trading Estate.

The proposed warehouse would replace an office building called Traders House.

"It is our opinion that this [office building] is an under-utilised site that has an opportunity to contribute to the commercial offering of Rue des Prés Trading Estate," Godel Architects said in a statement accompanying the planning application.

"We believe that the development of this site could meaningfully contribute to the Island’s local economy by providing a new, purpose-built commercial building and providing employment opportunities for local residents."

QBS are described as a "significant" island business which is estimated as the fourth-largest supplier of construction materials in Jersey, according to Godel Architects.

In a separate statement prepared for applicant MAIS properties, KR Synergy wrote: "There is a pressing and urgent need for QBS to expand its operations to a larger site to accommodate the growing business.

"Their current premises are constrained by insufficient space to expand the business to offer additional building products to their customers.

"It is the intention of QBS that the premises at Traders House serve as their main operation/ customer collection site serving trade customers while the existing premises [of QBS] serve auxiliary and storage uses."
