Robinson House to come into the BEC portfolio following purchase
13th October 2016: Britain’s Energy Coast (BEC) has purchased Robinson House, located at Westlakes Science and Technology Park. The company is already responsible for the operation of Westlakes and owns and directly manages five other buildings with commercial office space on the site in Cumbria.
CEO, Michael Pemberton commented: “The opportunity to bring Robinson House into the BEC Westlakes family arose earlier this year, and we are delighted to announce that the deal has been finalised. The building is in a great location and we are pleased that Robinson House’s quality tenants, Nuvia Ltd and Shepley Engineering Ltd., will remain.”
The purchase follows the successful addition of the Old Trade Board building at Cleator Moor to the BEC portfolio earlier this year. Following its transition to a fully commercial organisation in April 2016, profits generated from BEC’s growing commercial property portfolio support community projects across Allerdale and Copeland, particularly those with a low carbon focus.
“The site has good management value and makes great financial sense for BEC,” concluded Michael. “In addition I’m confident that our new tenants will benefit from our expanding facilities management expertise while getting the added benefit of knowing their rent will now fund great projects in the region.”
Britain’s Energy Coast will take responsibility for the building with immediate effect.
