UK offshore site on the market

February 12 - Bilfinger GVA has been instructed to market a former shipyard at Hadrian Road on the north bank of the River Tyne, Wallsend, in the UK.

The facility which extends to 75 acres (30 ha) has a 1,000 m frontage to the River Tyne including a strengthened angled loading quay and extensive assembly pad with underground ducting network.

Buildings extending to 440,000 sq ft (40,877 sq m) are available on the site including high quality office accommodation in OGN House, project offices, high bay fabrication sheds and warehouses.

There is also 50 acres (20 ha) of cleared land available for use in association with the buildings, water frontage or potentially for new development.

The site benefits from three separate access roads direct onto Hadrian Road. The land and premises were previously used for offshore oil platform fabrication by Amec and most recently, the OGN Group.

Danny Cramman, head of industrial agency at Bilfinger GVA, Newcastle who is handling the marketing of the property comments: "The site, premises and extensive waterfront facilities offer a unique product to the market place and are well suited to a range of potential uses including, but not limited to, the offshore sector, general manufacturing, engineering and open storage. Either the whole or parts of the land and buildings are available by way of new leases for a term of years to be agreed."

He continues: "We welcome discussion with any interested party and full details are available on request."
