Strachan and Kemp provide the complete contractor solution for commercial real estate clients.

This includes regular contract work, maintenance, refurbishment, dilapidation, cleaning, floor maintenance, waste management services, as well as emergency on-call repairs.

The new Langlands base will be the company’s headquarters and the main center for future growth of the business across Scotland and beyond.

Steven Smernicki, Managing Director of Strachan and Kemp, said: “We have experienced rapid growth in demand for our services over the past few years and moving into this brand new unit is a significant milestone for our business.

“We have begun fitting out the unit, which will accommodate our expanding team and allow us to continue to grow and support our customers, as we continue to expand our geographic base beyond Scotland.”

Howard Crawshaw, Managing Director of Knight Property Group, added: “This is new momentum for the park, with strong interest in the remaining units.

“We remain committed to the investment and speculative development of quality industrial and logistics space in the central belt of Scotland.”

Langlands Commercial Park (Phase 1) is a new 10 unit speculative industrial development facility, located in the well-established Kelvin South and Langlands industrial estates of East Kilbride, adjacent to Sainsbury’s logistics facility.
