Chancerygate has won the accolade of refit/refurbishment of the year for the Klinger Building at Klinger Industrial Park, Sidcup, at the inaugural Insider South East Property Awards.
As part of the 6.67-acre Klinger Industrial Park, which also incorporates a 105,100 sq ft new-build multi-unit industrial estate, the Klinger Building is a refurbished Grade II listed building of 61,560 sq ft.
When we first acquired the rare brownfield site, the Klinger Building was registered as a risk on both English Heritage and Historic England’s risk registers. Our task was to redevelop the building whilst maintaining its key architectural features.
Through our work, we’ve brought a listed building of local significance back into use, and the Klinger Building is no longer on any risk registers. It is currently occupied by Titan Storage Solutions.
In a competitive field, we beat three other projects located in the South East in the refit/refurbishment of the year category. Klinger Industrial Park was also shortlisted in the commercial development of the year category.
The Insider South East Property Awards, which took place at the Sofitel Gatwick Airport Hotel on February 27, celebrated the major deals and developments from the region, as well as its leading consultants, lawyers, agents and architects.
Commenting on the award win, development director, Jonathan Lee, said: “The success of the Klinger Building is testament to our entrepreneurial approach in identifying strategic sites to redevelop and refurbish.
“This was an extremely complex project which required Chancerygate to assemble a specialist professional team beyond our typical stable of advisors, so we’re very pleased to win this accolade.”
Our win at the Insider South East Property Awards follows our success at the South West edition of the awards, where Warmley Business Park, Bristol, was named industrial development of the year.
