Lambert Smith Hampton (LSH) emerged victorious at last month’s South Coast Property Awards. The firm scooped the prestigious ‘Industrial Consultancy of the Year (by sq ft)’ category, having transacted almost 1 million sq ft of space during the course of 2022.

The fifth annual South Coast Property Awards recognised the region’s top performers from the commercial and residential property community across 18 award categories.

Over 350 developers, agents, planners, consultants, property lawyers and dealmakers came out in force at the Hilton at the Ageas Bowl to enjoy the first in-person SCPA ceremony since the Covid-19 pandemic.

This award follows clinching the ‘Agency of the Year Award’ at the South-East Property Awards in July, in which LSH’s south-coast team was recognised for completing 85 deals across the region during 2021, equating to some 1.4m sq ft of industrial and office transactions. The judges noted that LSH was particularly strong in developing job-creating schemes.

Dan Rawlings, director at LSH, said:

“These recent accolades reinforce our position as the South Coast’s largest industrial and logistics team. Our experienced team has handled a range of mandates on behalf of occupiers, developers and investors, including pre–letting over 60,000 sq ft for Kier Property and Test Valley Borough Council in Andover to a letting of over 85,000 sq ft at Chichester Business Park on behalf of City of Edinburgh Council”.

Off the back of an active 18 months, LSH has also topped EGi’s recent league table of industrial deals in Hampshire, cementing its position as the South-Coast’s most active industrial agency team.

Andy Hodgkinson, director and head of LSH’s Southampton office, added:

"It has been another exceptional year for us. The market for industrial space continues to drive forward at a pace. There is a shortage of land and pent-up demand, which bodes well for landlords both now and in the future. We have had some great successes, notably Logistics City in Whiteley and Adanac Park in Southampton. We are hugely optimistic about the future with plenty more deals coming down the line."
