FG Burnett is pleased to have secured, on behalf of private client Beechleigh Property Holdings, a new tenant, Tetra Technologies UK, to a newly refurbished office and workshop building at Endeavour Drive, Westhill. The building, which extends to in excess of 20,000sq. ft provides a broad mix of open plan and cellular office space to complement substantial workshop space complete with overhead cranes and external laydown space.
FG Burnett not only acted as letting agent but the company’s building surveying team also handled the refurbishment of the building with CHAP Group as the main contractor. Iona Foubister, senior building Surveyor at FG Burnett, who acted as contract administrator said: “The refurbishment in excess of £300,000 was a package of various internal and external works including cladding, re-surfacing, flooring, decoration and mechanical and electrical; including Section 63 upgrade works. We worked to a tight timescale over winter and in conjunction with both our client and the ingoing tenant to achieve a fully refurbished building for them taking occupation in March.”
Graeme Watt, director at FG Burnett who negotiated the letting on behalf of Beechleigh said: “Prior to the tragic outbreak of Covid-19, this letting went a long way to confirm that the industrial property market in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire was beginning to emerge from the doldrums of earlier years. It goes without saying that Covid-19 has had a profound effect on short term market confidence and conditions but hopefully when it has been collectively defeated conditions will once again improve.”
Knight Frank’s Aberdeen office acted for Tetra Technologies UK and Scott Hogan, Head of Industrial Agency commented “the move to Endeavour Drive will provide Tetra Technologies UK with a fully refurbished fit for purpose working environment and an upgrade over their existing premises. Despite the amount of supply, the market for larger good quality industrial stock does remain limited. This letting proves that occupiers remain in the market for best in class industrial accommodation.
