The Perfect FIT(ology) for SJ Tech

Acting on behalf of the Landlord BB&J Commercial are delighted to have agreed terms on a new 10 year lease to Stephen James Technologies who have taken occupation of Fitology House, Smedley Street East, Matlock.

As part of the firms planned expansion the electronics specialist has relocated from their existing facility within the town to Fitology House which comprises a prestigious 4,774 sq.ft headquarter office building which up until recently was occupied by Balfour Beatty.

Chris Keogh, Senior Agency Surveyor at BB&J Commercial commented “When the property became vacant last Christmas following the end of a long-term tenancy, we agreed with the landlord to initially undertake a soft marketing exercise over the festive period ahead of a full marketing campaign in the new year.  However, as a result of this approach we were pleasantly surprised by the level of interest and were able to agree terms fairly quickly with SJ Technologies”.

Chris continued “As part of the tenancy the landlord agreed to commit to the various refurbishment and redecoration works required and therefore we would extend our thanks to AJ Coatings, Carpet Time, Europa Electrics, O Heap & Sons and Steve Bown Plumbing who all delivered an exemplary service and finish.  Furthermore, we are grateful for the endeavours of John O’Connor, Fishers Solicitors who acted on behalf of the landlord and Glen McGlenaghan of Lovedays who represented the tenant.”

Mark Richardson, partner at BB&J added “ We were particularly pleased to agree this deal, as the demand for office space of this size in the locality is something of a niche market. Consequently, both BB&J and our clients are very happy that we have put this together. It goes to show that with the right marketing campaign tailored as necessary for every property it is possible to achieve a good result.”
