US engineering company Thetford has taken a pre-let at St Paul’s Development and Tritax Asset’s 85 acre Brookfields scheme in Rotherham.
Thetford has taken a 17-year lease on an 83,000 sq ft warehouse as part of plans to expand the company. It is relocating staff into their new purpose-built facility from several smaller units totalling 60,000 sq ft at Parkwood Industrial.
The warehouse will be completed in December 2011 with Thetford due to take occupation shortly after. Lambert Smith Hampton advised.
Following the pre-let, the remaining site can accommodate around 100,000 sq ft of bespoke industrial/warehouse or office accommodation. CB Richard Ellis and Knight Frank represented the developers.
Paul Chambers, general manager at Thetford, said: “In the current market, it was a prime opportunity for us to upgrade our property to something that is tailored to our specific requirements, while also taking advantage of the financial incentives on offer through the site’s former enterprise zone status.”
