Keller expands into Langtree/HCA scheme

Ground engineering firm Keller Geotechnique has relocated its St Helens office to Langtree's Mere Grange.

Keller Geotechnique has taken a 2,374 sq ft ground floor office on a five-year lease, relocating from a business centre in the town. The company is a specialist in the restricted access piling and ground engineering market.

The first phase of Mere Grange, a joint venture with the Homes & Communities Agency, is a 34,000 sq ft office development comprising 10 speculative buildings from 2,500 to 10,100 sq ft with on site car parking.

Philip Ball, deputy managing director of Keller Geotechnique, said: "Following the recent restructuring of our business we felt we had outgrown our existing business centre premises in St Helens but wanted to remain in the town, so Mere Grange was the ideal choice for us."

Langtree and the HCA plans future development at Mere Grange totalling 300,000 sq ft in phases on either a speculative or bespoke basis. Mere Grange is located off the A570 St Helens Linkway, linking to Junction 7 of the M62.

Deborah McLaughlin, Regional Director NW for the HCA said: "It is great to see our original investment in this development continuing to reap the rewards by attracting private sector occupiers to Mere Grange. This will safeguard local employment and provide opportunities doe future jobs in St Helens."

The joint agents for Mere Grange are Keppie Massie and King Sturge's Manchester office.
