Cairnrobin Commercial Park cements relationship with building materials supplier Keyline

Posted: 4th September 2018

DM Hall, one of Scotland’s largest independent firms of chartered surveyors, has secured the presence of leading UK-wide building materials business, Keyline, an arm of the Travis Perkins group, at Cairnrobin Commercial Park, Aberdeen.

Keyline has relocated from its Miller Street depot in Aberdeen to the purpose-built 2 acre site which it has leased for an initial 10 year term. Keyline complements the existing tenant mix of trade occupiers including, Nationwide Platforms, HSS Hire, AT-PAC and West End Glazing.

Cairnrobin Commercial Park is strategically located 5 miles south of Aberdeen city centre between Cove and Portlethen. The site allows for easy access to the A90 Aberdeen to Dundee Trunk Road and is located just 1.5 miles from the Charleston Junction of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route.

DM Hall’s Kevin Jackson, a director in the firm’s Aberdeen office, said: “Cairnrobin Commercial Park is a former pipe yard site which has seen heavy investment by its current owners and has evolved naturally, as it has improved, into a commercial park popular with trade park operators.

“As part of the deal with Keyline our client carried out significant site works including laying over an acre of concrete, fencing and lighting the site and laying foundations for the various Keyline buildings.

“The letting reflects a renewed confidence in the Aberdeen industrial market which is showing signs of recovery after a prolonged period of reduced activity.” 

Accessed through an electronically operated security gate, the site extends to a total of 14.65 acres of which around 3 acres remains available. An adjacent surfaced storage yard of up to 10.23 acres is also available on flexible lease terms. The site benefits from a full CCTV system, security fencing and patrolled security outside of working hours.

Gary Anthony, Regional Director of Keyline said “We are delighted with the relocation of our Aberdeen depot to Cairnrobin Commercial Park. It provides us with a superb, cost- effective new facility in the perfect location for distributing our products to Aberdeen and the North East”. 

Wright Buchanan acted on behalf of Keyline in the transaction.
