Breedon Group expands office portfolio in Leicestershire

AIM Listed construction materials group, Breedon Group plc, has expanded its office portfolio, leasing 8,400 sq ft of office space at Garden Court within the old walled garden at Lockington Hall in Leicestershire, adjacent to M1 J24.

The property was marketed on behalf of the landlord by Alex Reid of Mather Jamie who was recently appointed to manage the Lockington Estate. Garden Court offers modern, single-storey offices set in landscaped grounds with on-site car parking. Arranged around four linked Pavilions with a central atrium, the offices offer open-plan accommodation flexible for use by a variety of office users.

Robert Marsden, Land & Mineral Resources Manager at Breedon, said: “In terms of location, size of the property and the availability of car parking, Garden Court fitted our requirements perfectly. Everything that was promised worked out perfectly.”

Lockington Estate comprises a diverse portfolio of 39,000 square feet of office space, a substantial sand and gravel quarry, and 15 residential properties. Lockington Hall, a grade II listed building, was converted to office accommodation soon after the current owner Charles Coaker inherited the estate in 1972.

Commenting, Mr Coaker added: “I was very pleased that Mather Jamie was able to agree a new lease with such good tenants to run seamlessly from when the previous occupiers vacated, ensuring that I had virtually no void rental period. We were delighted to assist Breedon to establish a new base in an unrivalled rural setting which has superb connectivity and transport links.”

Breedon Group plc is headquartered at Breedon on the Hill, Leicestershire, England and employs nearly 3,500 employees who operate from over 350 sites in Great Britain and Ireland.
