Acting on behalf of The City of London Corporation, Colliers has let 30 Engate Street, a three-storey 38,000 sq ft warehouse in Lewisham to KwickScreen on a new 10 year lease.
KwickScreen are a pioneer in the supply of a new form of portable medical screens which creates private space for hospital patients and similar uses.
The building has recently been refurbished by the Landlord and comprises warehouse and ancillary office accommodation over three floors.
Tim Harding, Industrial and Logistics at Colliers commented: “30 Engate Street is a rare high quality Inner London industrial building which provided the scale and efficient layout of space that KwickScreen required. We wish them all the best in their new facility for the fantastic products they are developing for use in the wider economy.”
The local area has seen a real dearth of suitable accommodation of this size due to continued loss of employment land and lack of sites coming forward to replenish stock levels. There is strong demand for high quality facilities that can accommodate highly skilled light industrial operations as well as last mile logistics requirements.
Alan Murrell, CEO at KwickScreen added: “30 Engate street is a great unit, in a good high street location which was something we had really been looking for as our requirements span manufacturing, research and development through to sales and marketing. It’s a perfect location for all of our staff.
“In this new building we plan to continue to develop our hygienic infection isolation screens to help hospitals around the world create more hygienic and sustainable spaces for every patient by superseding hospital curtains.”
