MTM appointed main contractor at latest Knight Property Group development

KNIGHT Property Group is continuing its speculative development programme across the north east of Scotland, with construction works commencing on a 0.44-acre plot in Westhill, Aberdeenshire.

The site is adjacent to the forthcoming Wickes store, currently being developed by Knight.

MTM Construction has been appointed as main contractor for the upcoming development project on Exploration Way. The anticipated construction timeline spans four months, with a targeted completion of June 2024.

Extending to 4,411 sq ft and offering 12 car parking spaces, the unit is said to boast a ‘high specification’ design, featuring a steel portal frame construction, ‘high-performance’ cladding, electric roller doors, and a concrete yard.

Dan Mitchell of Knight Property Group said, |”We are pleased to sustain our speculative development initiatives across the north east and central belt of Scotland. Westhill remains a sought-after location with encouraging take-up and we have received several early enquiries thus far from trade counter and industrial style occupiers.”

Doug Milne, MD of MTM Construction Ltd, added, “We’re delighted to collaborate once more with Knight Property Group and look forward to delivering a top tier building for their expanding portfolio.”

Exploration Way is positioned approximately 7.5 miles west of Aberdeen city centre.

Chris Ion, partner at letting agents Graham + Sibbald, commented, “The new unit is in a strategic location and is likely to attract a diverse array of potential occupiers spanning trade counter, small box retail or the energy sector.”
