" ...local connections, relationships and knowledge have been vital throughout the construction process, giving delivery of exactly what we wanted to provide. "
- Roger Owen, Property Director
Morrisons approached us with a "multiple" question. To find a plot for their replacement Produce Depot close to a ferry connection between The Netherlands and the UK and to assist during the construction of the Produce Depot (fruit & vegetables exported to the UK) of 8,000 sqm. We also had to keep in mind that the plot could offer expansion of the Depot to 16,000 sq m within a period of 2 or 3 years.
Since the plot also needed to be suitable for expansion almost all available sites were
ruled out. After initial conversations with a developer and the Municipality the zoning for one
plot could be changed, therefore providing the needed expansion possibility and necessary
Our local market knowledge provided the needed plot and the "best" developer. We
achieved the desired outcome for our client, a build-to-suit Produce Depot as close to the
desired ferry harbour as possible, within the time frame that was set out. We succeeded in
obtaining the plot for a lower land value than was initially quoted.
