Kenmore has let an office unit to Balfour Beatty at Puma Court, Kings Business Park, in Knowsley, Merseyside.

The engineering, construction and investment company is relocating from Prescott and will take on a 7,417 sq ft unit at the park.

It has taken the space on a new 10-year lease, with a five-year break option, and will pay a stepped rent starting at £14 per sq ft, rising to £15.50 per sq ft by the fifth year.

Puma Court comprises seven units; five of which were originally owned by Kenmore.

Of the five units Kenmore purchased, two were sold: one to Johnsons Group of Properties and another to Kings Park Day Nursery.

The only other stand-alone unit remaining is Unit 4 (7,634 sq ft), which is available either to let or sell.

Mark Robinson, associate director at Kenmore’s Manchester office, said: ‘This letting demonstrates that despite the tough economic climate in which we find ourselves, there is still a market for good quality, well located office premises.'

Mason Owen and CB Richard Ellis (Liverpool) are appointed joint letting agents on the scheme.
