The team’s success over the course of the year ensured that LSH disposed of around 170,000 sq ft of office space. The team also boosted the total volume of deals carried out to 42 in 2015, up from 29 in 2014, whilst almost doubling average deal size to 4,000 sq ft.
Particularly significant deals included a 15,113 sq ft letting at Eagle Point, Segensworth to Smoothwall and Amiri Construction, 21,809 sq ft of lettings at Spinnaker House, Fareham, to Mercator Media and Wartsila and a 16,682 acquisition at Cumberland House, Southampton on behalf of Regus. The team’s biggest deal was a 22,939 sq ft acquisition at Tollbar House, Hedge End on behalf of Nice Systems UK Ltd.
In October, EGi also named Lambert Smith Hampton (‘LSH’) the most active commercial property agent in Hampshire for 2015 for the ninth consecutive year, a further demonstration of the firm’s strength in the southern market.
Andrew Hodgkinson, Director, Lambert Smith Hampton’s South Coast Office Agency, said: “The EGi rankings are a real testament to the hard work the whole team has put in over the course of the year. Across the whole of the South Coast, we have worked exceptionally hard to ensure the best service possible to our clients, in conjunction with a marked increase in the volume of deals transacted. We hope to continue this strong momentum throughout the next year and to build on all we have accomplished in 2015.”
