Kier was selected as Asset Manager and Development Partner for Test Valley Borough Council to enhance asset management services within their existing estate and stimulate regeneration and development opportunities.
The obligations include rent collection, re-gearing leases, increasing occupation levels, refurbishing old buildings and increasing employment opportunities.
The contract also gives Kier exclusive development rights across the 200 acre park. An annual fee is payable linked to the Council’s annual income.
All plots will be disposed of on 150 year leases with an agreed ground rent geared to the full market rental value.
A local office was opened on the Business Park to ensure Kier has a presence on site. Through active asset management and developing vacant plots, Kier’s aim is to increase the Council’s income and regenerate a key core employment area for Andover.
Kier has completed multiple speculative schemes over the years. All redevelopment projects provide a pipeline of development to fulfil the future occupational requirements of both existing and new occupiers on the Walworth Business Park.
