Thirteen Years of Craigard
Craigard is a vibrant and opportunist organisation adept at looking ahead to future market trends.
In our formative years the overheated investment market led us to target vacant properties for enhancement and refurbishment where there was a balance of risk and return. Over 600,000 sq ft of primarily industrial property was either let or sold in our first three years.
We then battened down the hatches through the worst of the economic storms between 2008 and 2010 – letting up any vacant space and stabilising bank debt.
Since then we have contracted about £70million of acquisitions and secured around £50million of private equity. We have an exciting portfolio under management of some 21 assets.
In 2019 we are again seeing an overheated investment market aligned with Brexit uncertainties, and as a consequence we are adopting a more cautious approach to new acquisitions.
We endeavour to bring inspiration to our projects and aim to add value in a proactive and focused style. There are, as a result, some sparkling successes in our story and robust recovery plays made from the depths of the recession.
Our progress over thirteen years has been built on a philosophy of thoughtful identification of opportunities, careful analysis with particular attention to detail, and hard graft.
