A deal co-brokered by commercial property specialist Vail Williams will make West Bromwich the new home for the UK’s largest independently-owned mechanical, electrical and fabric property maintenance business.

Vail Williams secured the 15-year lease to Integral as a single occupier on behalf of a property investment company.

The firm will be moving from neighbouring Smethwick to its new offices, which cover 30,567 square feet and are supplied by 42 parking spaces. Easily accessible, the premises are close to the A41 expressway and within walking distance of major amenities including the central shopping area, bus station, metro station and retail parks.

Steven Bott, Associate at Vail Williams’ Birmingham office, said: “This deal is a significant one in terms of total space let to a sole occupier, making it a win-win for Integral and the landlord. Premises of this specification, quality and accessibility are not easy to find, and we’re delighted that our local knowledge and experience delivered the best outcome for all parties.

“The new base has excellent transport links and is well located for local facilities, making it very attractive for the business and its employees. Getting these kinds of property arrangements right can make a huge difference to a business.”

Kevin Doughty, Regional Director at Integral, said: “We are a national operation, but it is important to us that we maintain our heritage in the West Midlands region. We needed to find the right office location and size to enable us to develop and grow the business further, in order to continue to support our clients. We’re very pleased that our requirements have been met with the right property.”

Joint agent on the deal was Bulley’s and Johnson Waud acted for Integral.
