Quiz Clothing was able to act within a three week timeframe from initial viewing to contract completion, allowing FG Burnett’s Glasgow Agency team to negotiate a favourable deal. FG Burnett director, Ross Sinclair, said: “Quiz Clothing has been looking for a suitable distribution hub for several years and their patience has paid off. The Big Blue Shed occupies a key strategic location connecting with both the M8 and M74 motorways, thereby allowing first class distribution linkage to Quiz’s considerable number of retail outlets. “The price paid is confidential but represents fantastic value for money - to put this into perspective, the building was purchased for considerably less than the price paid just a year ago.” Quiz Clothing’s business development director, Sheraz Ramzan, added: “Having almost outgrown our current premises we are delighted to have secured the Big Blue Shed with the assistance of FG Burnett. As both our internet and store operations grow, this facility will underpin our next stage of expansion and provide capacity to at least treble our existing estate of 250 outlets in the UK and internationally. This is a fantastic development for the Quiz brand and a well negotiated deal by FG Burnett.” Founded in 1995 with three stores in Scotland, Quiz Clothing now has 250 stores and concessions in most of the major shopping centres and High Streets across the UK and 52 franchises in Europe and Asia.

The plus size brand specialist has taken a 10 year lease on the former Austin Reed store at 253 Union Street. FG Burnett acted on behalf of local investor Craigellen Assets Ltd in negotiating the lease with an initial annual rent of £60,000 for the 3,700 sq ft unit. FG Burnett director, Richard Noble, said: “This is another positive development in maintaining Union Street’s position as an important retailing location. It’s great to welcome a retailer of Taking Shape’s reputation to Aberdeen and it creates a feel-good factor on Union Street which has seen a significant improvement in occupancy levels in recent months.” Taking Shape managing director, Alla Buinowicz, said: “Our new Aberdeen store is our very first Taking Shape store in Scotland which is incredibly exciting for us. We believe that there is a great demand here for both our garments and commitment to providing a unique and caring shopping experience. “Everything we do is about the customer, what makes her look good and what makes her feel great. We’re more than just a retailer and our goal is for women to enter as customers and leave as friends.” Culverwell acted for Taking Shape.

FG Burnett said a combination of its letting, building consultancy and property management services had succeeded in securing a third new tenant for the Altens business centre in the last six months. The five year lease of a 2500 sq ft unit to 3M Oil & Gas followed on from rental deals with fire protection specialist Tyco, ISIS Technical Services, a large multi-national oil and gas operator, and a lease renewal to an existing tenant. FG Burnett’s building consultancy division performed a quick turnaround on dilapidation work required after previous occupants vacated to have the units ready for incoming tenants. FG Burnett has managed the business centre on behalf of landlords Braefoot Cox since 2008 and provides a full financial service covering rent and service charge management. The Property Management team also take care of the common areas, ongoing building repairs and maintenance and ensuring all common services are functioning properly. FG Burnett director, Jim Johnstone, said: “This integrated approach to leasing properties, adapting or upgrading them to each client’s requirement and the ongoing management of the fabric of the building, works extremely well for landlords such as Braefoot Cox. It streamlines the process of securing tenants and protects the owner’s investment by ensuring the asset is kept fresh, modern and safe, while retaining and hopefully increasing value.” The Albyn Place-based property advisors said the four deals, totalling 20,000 sq ft, underlines the continuing strong demand for good quality accommodation with access to Aberdeen city centre and surrounding transport hubs. Improvements to updating the entrance to the Centre, enhanced signage, the removal of old fencing, and redecorating internal common areas, had positioned the Altec Centre as a desirable location for doing business in Aberdeen. Head of FG Burnett’s property management team, Christopher Yannaghas, added: “A co-ordinated approach to letting, refurbishment and ongoing management ensures that the Altec Centre remains a well-presented and modern trading environment for the occupational tenants. “There is very little stock currently available in and around Aberdeen and properties like the Altec Centre are benefiting from the ripple effect of a buoyant north-east market. With the Altec Centre now fully let, it is a reminder to businesses that if they intend relocating they must be thinking many months in advance to secure premises which meet their growth objectives.” [post_title] => Altec Centre Success [post_excerpt] => [post_status] => publish [comment_status] => open [ping_status] => open [post_password] => [post_name] => altec-centre-success [to_ping] => [pinged] => [post_modified] => 2017-02-01 13:32:24 [post_modified_gmt] => 2017-02-01 13:32:24 [post_content_filtered] => [post_parent] => 0 [guid] => http://fgburnett.co.uk/?p=4007 [menu_order] => 0 [post_type] => post [post_mime_type] => [comment_count] => 0 [filter] => raw ) [7] => WP_Post Object ( [ID] => 3975 [post_author] => 20 [post_date] => 2014-08-22 15:40:01 [post_date_gmt] => 2014-08-22 15:40:01 [post_content] =>

Staff at FG Burnett in Aberdeen are in for a beasting but hope their collective pain will benefit the Wooden Spoon charity.

 

A team of four will take part in the Prime Four Banchory Beast Challenge next month (27 Sept) where they will tackle a 10k race over rough terrain, dirt tracks and forest and attempt to clamber over 30 mega obstacles.

 

Thick mud, 12ft high wooden walls, shoulder deep bog water, barbed wire and icy loch water are just some of the challenges awaiting Stuart Fyvie, Graeme Millar, Stephanie Walker and Derek Richardson.

 

But the colleagues hope to raise £1000 for the Wooden Spoon which is the nominated charity of the Albyn Place commercial property business.

 

The Wooden Spoon is a rugby focussed charity which supports disadvantaged children and young people across the UK. In Scotland the charity is backed by the SRU and with former Scotland captain Gavin Hastings in the role of honorary president, it raises around £150,000 each year to support Scottish initiatives.

 

FG Burnett associate, Stuart Fyvie, said: “It’s madness but it’s for a good cause and we are committed to supporting the Wooden Spoon which performs a lot of good work across Scotland. It will be a test of our physical toughness and will power but we will push, pull and drag each other until we make it across the finishing line.”

Building Surveyor Iona Foubister’s head for figures will prove a great asset when she takes up scoreboard duties at the Commonwealth Games next week. The Robert Gordon Universitygraduate, part of FG Burnett’s Building Consultancy team, is one of 15,000 volunteers who will help staff the games which kick off with a spectacular opening ceremony on Wednesday. Iona has the critical task of relaying times and scores to anxious athletes, thousands of SECC spectators and an international television audience of millions.

No stranger to sport, Iona is a black belt in martial art Tae Kwon Do, so her interests are well suited to the judo, boxing, weightlifting and wrestling, which are just some of the sports taking place at the SECC. Iona will complete eight unpaid shifts over a 10-day period and, like all the volunteers, has arranged her own travel and accommodation during the historic games.

She said: “I’ve never done anything like this before, but was so inspired when I watched the Olympic Games in London that I wanted to get involved in some way with the Commonwealth Games taking place on my doorstep. More than 50,000 people applied to be a volunteer, so I am just delighted to play a small part in what should be a memorable sporting occasion. You had to list your interests before going for an interview, and I suspect with my Tae Kwon Do background that I have been placed at the SECC because it is hosting a wide range of contact sports.

“Working with numbers and figures isamust in my day job, so the scoreboard should not be too much of a challenge and I am really looking forward to the bonus of watching some of the world’s top sports stars in action.”
