Seven industrial units have been given a £1.4 million makeover to deliver new commercial space near the heart of Aberdeen.
And the owner, West Yorkshire-based In-site Property Solutions, has swiftly signed up the first tenant.
This is the first of what we believe will be a steady stream of established businesses recognising an unmissable opportunity.”

The six remaining units – ranging in size from 5,504 to 14,390sq ft – each boasts a main workshop area, office accommodation, staff facilities and a concrete forecourt for servicing and parking.
In-site, a family-owned business with more than 40 years of industrial property ownership and management experience throughout the north of England and Scotland’s central belt, acquired the Crombie Road development in January 2022.
Alex Boyle, the firm’s managing director. said: “Our intention was to restore and upgrade the entire development to give prospective tenants a first-class, high-quality base of operations.
“I believe we have succeeded in that aim and we are grateful to our contractors for ably fulfilling the brief we provided.”
Work went to Aberdeen’s Burns Construction
The major revamp was carried out by Aberdeen firm Burns Construction.
It involved the replacement of all roof coverings, external cladding and vehicle access doors, as well as the renewal of all external doors and windows.
Burns also completed an internal redecoration of workshop flooring, walls and structural steelwork, in addition to a refurbishment of offices and staff amenity areas.
The site’s first tenant was secured by property specialists DM Hall and Ryden.
Stuart Johnston, Aberdeen-based partner at DM Hall, said: “This is the first of what we believe will be a steady stream of established businesses recognising an unmissable opportunity to place themselves at the centre of north-east Scotland’s commercial activity by availing themselves of premises appropriate to their ambitions.
“Full details of all remaining units are available on our website, with rents available on application. We expect to see significant interest.”
Belron, whose Autoglass business operates in the UK, Ireland and Poland, is active in 37 countries around the world.
It was represented in the Aberdeen property deal by Derby-based commercial property and regeneration specialist Alps Group.
Scott Harper, estates surveyor, Alps, said: “Our client is pleased that such a proven business as In-site Property Solutions has led the way in undertaking the successful refurbishment of the Crombie Road site and we, collectively, wish it many years of successful trading.”
