New Containerised Self- Storage Facility in Swindon01 April


Acting on behalf of Swindon Borough Council, Keningtons have let a site of approximately 2 acres to Container Team Limited.

The site which is principally laid to hard standing, is located off the Great Western Way at Barnfield, in close proximity to B&Q and the Lidl store.

Jeremy Sutton of Keningtons comments “It is quite rare to be able to offer a site such as this on a leasehold basis and the Council are now able to receive income for a minimum 5 year period, from a site, part of which may be required in the future for road improvement works”

Tim Edwards MD at Container Team adds “This will be our fourth site in the South West to operate containerised self storage under our award winning Space Program brand. We have been looking at Swindon for a while now and are delighted to have secured this site in what should prove to be an excellent location, adjacent to the busy B&Q”

Sale completed at Interface, Royal Wootton Bassett.04 March

Acting on behalf of Canynge Bicknell (Investments) Limited, Keningtons are pleased to announce the sale of a 4,525 sq ft two storey office building on the popular Interface Business Park.

The property was in the process of being refurbished when the sale to a Private Pension Fund was agreed. The Trustees of the Pension Fund will now be letting the property to their own company, Joint Operations Limited, a business specialising in Medical Devices which is relocating from the Blagrove area in Swindon.

Keningtons partner, Jeremy Sutton comments “The property, along with the adjoining building became available when the previous tenants lease expired. Canynge Bicknell undertook a comprehensive refurbishment of both units, which included new air conditioning and were rewarded with a sale of unit 11, before the ‘paint was dried’. Unit 10 which is also 4,525 sq ft is now available to either let or purchase.

Richard Forster, a partner in both Joint Operations and the pension fund, commented “we’re excited to be taking root at 11 Interface Business Park. Royal Wootten Bassett is an excellent location for Joint Operations, given its proximity to the motorway network and the skilled local workforce”.

Keningtons and Loveday acted for the vendors and Smethurst Property Consultants acted for the Purchasers.
