Knight Real Estate appointment consolidates in Scotland's Central Belt

Leading commercial property developer Knight Real Estate has appointed a development director as part of its growth strategy across Scotland.

Niall Carlton joins the Aberdeen-based company with a specific remit to develop its activity in the Central Belt, aiming to build on the successful completion of its first development in this key market.

Alongside Central Belt project manager Steve Williams, Niall will lead a drive by Knight to identify new development opportunities via land or building purchase and oversee the lettings of completed developments.

Knight has grown in recent months to become a 10-strong team based in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Warsaw.

Knight Real Estate Director Howard Crawshaw said: "Niall's appointment is a key step forward for us in terms of consolidating our presence in the Central Belt and becoming established as a significant player nationally.

"Knight has evolved from a business focused largely on speculative development to one also involved in a succession of client-specific projects. Flexibility is a central element of our growth strategy and we look forward to growing our portfolio on a national basis."

Its flagship Central Belt development, the 7million Chameleon Business Park in Livingston, was completed earlier this year. Much of the three-phase project has already been let with high interest in the remaining units in the speculative, 47,000sq ft development.

Niall (41) joins Knight following a successful period working for an English-based commercial property company having previously had several office and industrial agency roles based in Scotland. Niall said: "I am very much looking forward to my new role within the company and carrying on the success that Knight has already achieved."
