The sector which both absorbs and generates new ideas and approaches to building design. And we're the catalyst.

Industrial property not so long ago conjured up mind's eye images of smoke stacks and Lowry.

Current and future developments could not be more different. Clean, crisp, efficient design, initially policed but now encouraged by changing rules, regulations, legislation, technology, processes and ways of working, and the development and management of property in the industrial and distribution sectors, both absorb and generate new ideas.

New building types and designs continually emerge – while others drop out of active use but are recycled for generations who consider the past to be another land where they did things differently.  

McBains moves with the changing economic landscape, and provides a comprehensive service for industrial property developers, whether private or public property companies or funded/investor enterprises. Our professional services include acquisitions, disposals, relocation, funding, new build development and refurbishment.  

Cost management versus project delivery is, we appreciate, a huge challenge – but we are in the enviable position of being able to apply our considerable interdisciplinary skill base and deploy our sector specialists to deliver tight and effective project control.  

We dig deep to understand our clients’ business - whether manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, utilities, distribution and storage, site remediation or intermodal facilities - and couple our findings with our market vigilance and proven problem-solving ability, and appreciate the depth, detail and subtlety of our clients’ requirements. 

Services are tailored to deliver to budgets and deadlines, never more crucial than in a world where competition to locate or relocate can be immense.

Finding the better way has never been more important.
