Self-storage success as Lok’nStore unit completed

Main contractor MCS Group has completed the construction of a new self-storage facility in Gloucester for one of the leading names in the sector.

The Midlands-based contractor has delivered the 15,134 sq ft unit on behalf of Lok’nStore, the rapidly growing self-storage company, at Triangle Park, Metz Way.

Lok’nStore, which was established in 1995, is expanding across the country and has launched new facilities at locations including Ipswich, Hemel Hempstead, Wellingborough and Gillingham.

This is the sixth Lok’nStore project for MCS Group, which has worked alongside the company for several years to deliver high quality, purpose-built storage facilities for personal or business customers.

Alan Shadbolt, group commercial director at MCS Group, said: “We are very pleased to be able to announce that we have reached practical completion on another excellent storage facility, this time at Triangle Park in Gloucester.

“Lok’nStore’s new facility in Gloucester is a first class building and it’s been a great project to be involved in. We’ve got a very successful, longstanding relationship with Lok’nStore and this is another example of great team work delivering a development of real quality.”

Lok’nStore chief executive Andrew Jacobs said: “This excellent new location adds to the recent rapid growth in our pipeline of stores. Our objective remains to grow by both acquiring more sites to build new landmark stores for Lok’nStore’s own balance sheet and to increase the number of stores we manage under the Lok’nStore brand for third parties.”

In 1995 Lok’nStore was one of the first self-storage companies in the UK. Now it has 33 stores in convenient locations across the UK. The eye-catching buildings, with their distinctive orange Lok’nStore branded livery and prominent Lok’nStore signage, create highly visible landmarks. The new Gloucester store will open its doors to customers in early 2020.

Award-winning MCS Group is enjoying a period of sustained growth in delivering projects across the industrial, storage and distribution sector. The company has also built and refurbished more than 300 car dealerships including Audi, BMW, Mclaren and Jaguar Land Rover since its inception in 2003.
