Colliers reaffirms top spot as team scoops the Industrial Agency Team of the Year award

alt=""

Colliers' Industrial & Logistics team in Scotland has again scooped the Industrial Agency Team of the Year in the Scottish Property Awards. It is the third time in the six years since the inception of the award category that Colliers has claimed the top spot.


The Awards, this year hosted as a digital awards experience, live from the Glasgow Doubletree by Hilton, saw senior members from across the industry attend the event, hosted by comedian and broadcaster Des Clark.

"This has been an unprecedented 12 months," said Iain Davidson, director of Colliers' Industrial and Logistics team in Glasgow. "The response to the pandemic and subsequent lockdowns has seen the sector providing the facilities for distributing, manufacturing and building stocks of PPE and vaccines, to ecommerce fulfilment and last-mile distribution, while businesses in general have been focusing on developing more flexible and efficient ways of working."

“We’re humbled to win this prestigious award again which is testament to the dedication and hard work of our team and the faith shown to us by our clients.” 

During the last 12 months, the Colliers team in Scotland has transacted approximately 1.5m sq ft of industrial and logistics property, advising on most of the highest profile transactions, including two deals at Eurocentral, totalling 300,000 sq ft, to the NHS.
