Graham + Sibbald scoring high!

Graham + Sibbald is delighted to receive four CoStar Industrial Agency League Table Awards 2010-2011.

Graham + Sibbald is pleased to report strengthening levels of demand for industrial properties throughout the central belt and the northern parts of Scotland. The Inverness office indicates a clear sign of increased activity of transaction of industrial units throughout the Highlands and Islands whilst Aberdeen has witnessed a healthy market for industrial accommodation throughout 2010 and continued into 2011.

We were awarded the trophies for being in the top 5 in the following categories:
1) Availability of Sq ft; 2) Number of Instructions; 3) Disposals Sq ft and 4) Number of disposals.

Simpson Buglass from the Aberdeen office comments: "Aberdeen has witnessed a healthy market for industrial accommodation throughout 2010 and continued into 2011. This period saw Knight Property Group complete its very successful Kirkhill Commercial Park, Dyce with occupation of the c.60,000sqft offshore training and survival centre design and build for Survivex, and letting of c.14,000sqft Unit 3 to Schilling Robotics. The Chancellor’s surprise announcement of additional tax for oil + gas companies late March 2011 put a brake on the market for about eight weeks but activity is up again with disposals achieved across town and increased interest in lower cost units."
