The Schedule was served and subsequently negotiated with the former occupier’s surveyor. A sum in lieu of the works was agreed and project management of dilapidation and upgrade works followed in conjunction with marketing. Low key at first in January. Geared up in spring, as works advanced.
The building is unusual in that it has a high office content and a 6,000 sq. ft. storage deck , to add to 10,000 sq. ft. of principal office and warehouse space. The offer to the market included flexibility of removing part of the deck to increase full eaves height warehousing, but this did not prove necessary.
“Dilapidation and upgrade work took 4 months’ to complete, but presentation of the facility to meet modern technological and efficiency expectations had an immediate impact on potential new occupiers. WET Group found the unique layout an ideal fit and the property was let in quick time to meet the tenant’s aspiration for early occupation.” reported Martyn Howard.
