A 57,000 sq ft industrial unit on the Bayton Road Industrial Estate in Exhall, Coventry, was purchased by The Wigley Group in 2016, offering a prime spot on one of the largest commercial and industrial locations in the West Midlands and excellent connectivity to the A444 and M6.

The pre-war industrial unit was previously occupied by a car components manufacturer, but The Wigley Group secured planning permission to convert and fully-refurbish the site as a leisure attraction for Red Kangaroo Trampoline Park on a 15-year lease, opening in February 2018.

Seven months after, however, the majority of the site was destroyed in a fire and left beyond repair.

Planning permission was secured a year later to demolish the fire-damaged building and design and build two new light industrial units. One of the first obstacles to overcome was securing the site with significant site remediation, clearance of asbestos, and ground stabilisation before main construction works commenced in March 2020.

A new 32,500 sq ft industrial unit was built to include a 7,000 sq ft mezzanine floor to act as a viewing gallery, a glass-fronted atrium at the entrance, ribbon windows, and an air conditioning system. The unit was constructed without any internal supporting pillars to aid the design and layout of the trampoline park, and with eaves height of eight metres.

This not only created a brand-new, custom-made, state-of-the-art trampoline centre on a tight timescale which was let on a new 15-year lease, but led to further site enhancements with the construction of a self-contained 25,000 sq ft industrial unit with 2,000 sq ft mezzanine offices next door. This was let to Events Management Ltd on a 10-year lease for distribution.
