Securing a European grant enabled a constrained industrial site to be developed.

A heavily constrained 15 acre site suffering from underground structures and high levels of contamination was only able to be brought forward for viable development by securing match funding from the European Regional Development Fund.

One match funding was in place, and using a construction cost rental matrix, a development of open-plan office, workshop and storage facilities across a seven acre site were delivered for a world leader in modular space and storage solutions.

In addition, the fully remediated site now contains a high bay 50,000sq.ft. distribution unit together with a fully serviced D&B opportunity.

Sale & leaseback of warehouse opened-up trade counter development land.

In an off-market transaction, a 40,000sq.ft. warehouse was bought, reconfigured, refurbished and leased-back to the owner. The agreed design solution for the occupier allowed a 3acre trade counter development site to be cleared, upon which 30,000sq.ft. of trade counter accommodation was constructed. A multi-national electrical retailer took a fifteen year lease on a unit of 18,000sq.ft., with the remaining industrial space being sold prior to practical completion.

The creation of a bespoke regional HQ in an off-market transaction.

In an off-market deal, a bespoke regional HQ facility on a 9acre was created for a German manufacturer of commercial vehicles. The site was previously owned and occupied by a manufacturing Plc and redevelopment could only take place once the 250,000sq ft facility had been demolished and fully remediated of all contamination.

The deal was agreed during numerous meetings in both Manchester and Germany, and upon completion, was awarded “Deal of the Year” by North West Business Insider.
