OBI Property’s building consultancy team have played a key role in Expert Logistics acquisition of a new 360,000 sq ft ProLogis warehouse in Crewe.

Home delivery specialist Expert Logistics, a subsidiary of fast growing DRL Holdings, is moving from a number of smaller buildings to consolidate their operation under one roof.

Dominic Horridge of OBI undertook a pre-acquisition building survey and provided legal advice in relation to the future repairing obligations.  OBI have also been appointed to monitor the landlord’s fit out works on behalf of Expert.

Dave Ashwell, Managing Director of Expert Logistics said “the advice provided by OBI working in conjunction with our solicitor and our property agent has proved invaluable throughout this process and we continue to work with OBI in relation to our on-going property interests nationwide.  We consider the advice we have received to be of the highest calibre and we are delighted with the acquisition of our new premises”.

ProLogis Crewe benefits from a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and an ‘A’ level Energy Performance Certificate rating.

Local MP Edward Timpson said “I am delighted that Expert Logistics will be bringing some 350 jobs to our area”.
