The industrial properties, each with a current footprint of around 10,000sqft, are undergoing extensive external and internal works including complete strip outs, recladding roofs and facades, extending yard space, and installing new windows, doors and office accommodation. The works programme will also result in improvements to the environmental impact to improve Energy Performance Certification for each building and reduce future occupier energy costs.
The principal change for each building will see each of the properties on Kelvin Avenue, Watt Road and Montrose Avenue reduced in size through demolition of various historic building extensions to create larger secure service yards.
Julia Cheung Buchanan, Hillington Park’s Development Manager said: “The pandemic brought unforeseen challenges and inevitable delays to our planned programmes of works across the estate but I’m pleased at how everyone has risen to those challenges and the progress we have made to bring these three buildings up to modern standards and significantly improved the environmental impact they have.
“These three properties have been well used by various industrial sectors over the years and there remains high demand for buildings of this size but also with good sized service yards that industrial and logistics businesses now require. We know that Hillington Park’s location is a huge part of companies’ decisions to base themselves here and when the work is completed in early 2021 we are confident that businesses from a range of sectors will be looking for exactly this type of facility.”
Frasers Property has engaged EPC Associates and PMP Building surveyors to manage the projects. Ryden and Colliers will be marketing the units for lease from completion in early 2021.
