CSA is very proud to announce that the new Britannia Lanes facility in Exeter has been shortlisted in the Michelmores Property Awards 2018 (Under £5m category).
The new Britannia Lanes facility was deliberately designed to produce a landmark building on this prominent corner site, to improve brand visibility. Replacing an obscure site which no longer met operational needs, this facility is designed to increase Britannia Lanes’ reputation and accessibility. It gives a home to their operational office staff, expanding self-storage business, and a dramatically increased number of containers.
Features include outward-facing parking spaces for the business’s fleet of branded removals vehicles, to advertise their availability and versatility, and the care they take to keep the vehicles in pristine condition – a successful part of the marketing strategy elsewhere. Staff access, and reception areas for the self-storage area and self-hire fleet are via a separate entrance to the HGVs, ensuring customer safety, and providing a lockable area for staff vehicles.
The interior of the premises is designed to facilitate the growth and development of the business in years to come, with flexibility to change the layout if necessary. At present, just over half is devoted to container storage, stacked up to 5 high, with a covered entrance for access. The remainder has a series of drive-up units, an area for offices, reception areas to welcome customers, and 5 storeys of self-storage, which will be fitted out as required. Lifts and toilets currently extend to all floors, in anticipation of this.
