Bristow Helicopters are set to touch down at brand new premises in Kintore Business Park.

Knight Frank represented the developer, Kintore Industrial Service Sites in securing a tenant for the latest unit at the Business Park, with Bristow Helicopters to commit to a new 20,000 sq ft base to supplement its existing workshop and office facilities in Dyce.

The 15-year lease enhances the strong performance of the Business Park and Bristow join occupiers including, Darcy, MAN, Logan Oil Tools, Paradigm, Halliburton and Osprey3.

Claire Herriot, a surveyor in Knight Frank’s Aberdeen office, said: “With direct access to the A96 dual carriageway, Kintore Business Park is an excellent example of the out of town opportunities available in the market.

“Dyce and Aberdeen International Airport are less than ten-miles away, with the city centre also easily accessible.

“We are delighted to have concluded the deal with Bristow Helicopters and to have added another strong name to our client’s tenant list.

“The response to the expansion of the Business Park is an endorsement of the investment made by Kintore Industrial Service Sites in developing the building on a speculative basis.”

The Bristow Helicopters unit incorporates a 10,000 sq ft workshop and around 10,000sqft of office and storage accommodation over three floors.

A rate of £8.50 per sq.ft was achieved for the workshop space and £16.00 per sq.ft for the office space.

Specification at construction included 11-metre eaves height and a crane rail with up to 50 tonne capacity, with the tenant since investing in bespoke fit-out.

Claire Herriot added: “With land constraints in Aberdeen City well documented, businesses are prepared to cast the net wider and as a result the Kintore and Inverurie area is experiencing increased demand and take-up for commercial space.”
