HARRIS LAMB OVERSEES £250,000 REFURBISHMENT OF KIDDERMINSTER WAREHOUSES

Harris Lamb’s Building Consultancy team has overseen the £250,000 refurbishment of three industrial units in Kidderminster as landlords continue to recognise the need for high-specification stock throughout the West Midlands.

The project saw the team oversee works at units 1-3 at Vale Industrial Estate on Stourport Road to bring them into a marketable condition for occupiers seeking premises in a prime location.

Formerly occupied by Specsavers, which has since relocated to its new manufacturing and distribution centre, the units have undergone a full strip-out of fixtures and fittings, been redecorated, refurbished and had the external areas overhauled and improved.

Gareth Booker of the building consultancy team, who managed the contract, said: “While developers are now building new parks throughout the region, the demand for high-specification industrial stock throughout the West Midlands has not abated, and landlords of existing sites have seen the opportunity to invest in improving their own assets.

“Where brand new buildings are thin on the ground, or out of some occupiers’ price-range, those sites refurbished to an ‘as new’ condition are proving very popular.

“The standard of this refurbishment is particularly high, and, teamed with the site’s access links, it is set to be an attractive proposition for those looking for premises within the region,” he added.

The business is marketing the units to buy as a whole, or to let in part or in their entirety.

Gareth added: “The landlord is the latest in a series to recognise the potential for their properties and invest in upscaling them to attract new tenants and improved rents.”
