Graham + Sibbald Praised for knowledge, facilitating The Keith Corp on the new development

Graham + Sibbald has been involved in a major new bespoke lab, office and storage development, extending to 135000 sqft, in Livingston for American based developers THE KEITH CORPORATION.

TKC acted on behalf of their clients for a £18m hi-tech business park development. They received funding from Clydesdale bank. North Carolina based TKC specialises in build-to- suit and business park development and was brokered by Tiger Advisers, following a team-to-team presentation by Clydesdale bank to Graham + Sibbald.

A principal requirement for TKC in purchasing the earmarked 14 acre site at the Alba Campus in Livingston, from Scottish Enterprise Edinburgh & Lothians (SEEL), was to limit its exposure to risk.

Graham + Sibbald assisted the Keith Corp on this new development for one of the world's largest pharmaceutical research companies, securing circa 700 jobs for the local economy.

Without the intimate knowledge of the Scottish property market and the main players, life in terms of facilitating this development would have been much, much more difficult.

Without the intimate knowledge of the Scottish property market, and the main players, life in terms of facilitating this development would have been much, much more difficult."
