CBRE has strengthened its North West Industrial and Logistics team based in Manchester and Liverpool with the appointment of Alex Perratt who joins as Surveyor. Alex joins from LSH where he spent more than 2 years in the Industrial Agency team.
Commenting on the appointment, Alex said:“I am delighted to join the CBRE Industrial Agency team in the North West to work across a number of excellent instructions, including prime distribution units, brand new multi-let estates and development sites.”
Paul Cook, Head of Industrial & Logistics for CBRE in the North West, said:“Alex joins us at an extremely exciting time as we continue to strengthen our portfolio of instructions on both existing stock and across a number of major North West logistics sites which will be developed over the next few years to increase supply and meet continued occupational demand”.
The North West team has secured instructions on a number of development sites capable of providing more than 6 million sq ft of logistics space, in addition to several speculative buildings providing more than 2 million sq ft.
Paul Cook continued: “Whilst we saw a slow start to take up in 2018 our research shows that YTD take-up stands at 2.15m sq ft with a further 800,000 sq ft under offer. There are a number of active requirements currently in the market which should see take-up for 2018 being another successful year for the North West”.
