Strachan and Kemp ramp up expansion plans with new HQ

KNIGHT Property Group has secured a further tenant for phase one of Langlands Commercial Park in East Kilbride.

Strachan and Kemp Commercial Services has agreed a ten-year lease on Unit J, which comprises 2,500 sq ft of industrial space, a small office and associated car parking.

The business provides solutions to commercial property clients including regular contract work, maintenance, refurbishment, dilapidations, cleaning, ground maintenance, waste services, and on-call emergency repairs.

The new base at Langlands will be the company HQ.

Steven Smernicki, MD of Strachan and Kemp, said, “We have enjoyed rapid growth in the demand for our services over recent years and moving into this brand new unit is a huge milestone for our business. We have undertaken the fit out of the unit, which will accommodate our expanding team and enable us to continue to grow and support our clients, as we continue to expand our geographical base beyond Scotland.”

Howard Crawshaw, MD of Knight Property Group, added, “This is a further boost for the park, with strong interest in the remaining units. We remain committed to the investment and speculative development of quality industrial and logistics space across the central belt of Scotland.”

Alan Gilkison, partner at agent Ryden, commented, “Interest in this development continues to be positive. It offers occupiers high quality space within an excellent location, with great connectivity.”

Langlands Commercial Park (Phase 1) is a 10-unit speculative industrial development facility. Ryden and GM Brown are joint agents for Knight Property Group at the commercial park.
