An experienced property professional has been appointed the first site manager of a new £5.5 million business and industrial park in Warwickshire which is due to open this month.
Katherine Skerry has become property manager of the purpose-built 35,000 sq ft Space Business Centre Warwick in Tachbrook Park which is being developed by AC Lloyd Commercial.
The 61 units, ranging from 285 sq ft to 840 sq ft, are nearing completion and are aimed at start-ups wanting to move from their home or garden shed into professional premises as well as more established businesses who are growing.
Katherine spent seven years working for one of the world’s leading property agents Savills in London selling new-build properties at different sites across the capital.
The mum-of-two, who has recently moved to Warwickshire from Worcester, said it was great to be involved with the launch of the Space Business Centre Warwick.
“I’m looking forward to meeting our tenants from the wide variety of businesses we expect to be based here and setting up a real community,” she said.
“That community feeling is really important for start-up business owners who may be taking their first step into having their own units and we want to make it as easy as possible.
“I’m excited to be involved in running a completely new site and I will be focused on the day-to-day operations of the Space Business Centre Warwick and dealing with tenants to help them settle in as well as looking after new enquiries to encourage more people to locate here.
“It is a fantastic new business park aimed at small companies who have reached a stage where they have outgrown their spare bedroom or shed and want to take their business to the next stage.
“We have the facilities to help them reach their goals as well as foster a community spirit between the tenants.”
Mark Edwards, Managing Director of AC Lloyd Commercial, welcomed Katherine to the business at an exciting time ahead of the launch of Space Business Centre Warwick.
“It is great to have Katherine on board with her high level of expertise as we sign-up tenants and continue to attract businesses to locate here,” he said.
“We are really pleased with the level of enquiries which highlights the demand for these kinds of small flexible premises that are ideal for office space, workshop and storage units.
“The location is also a big plus along with the fact that tenants have 30-day rolling agreements with no service charges and we are looking forward to opening on schedule towards the end of this month.”
