Bridge Industrial (“Bridge”), the US-based industrial real estate operating company and investment manager, has appointed David Sayers as Associate Project Manager as part of its ongoing UK expansion.
David will be working alongside Senior Vice President, Development, Stephen Vickers, and the wider UK team, supporting the firm’s project delivery in the UK, with a current pipeline of 430,000 sq ft of last mile logistics space within the M25.
David has over 10 years’ experience in the property market, starting his career as a Building Surveyor working at Knight Frank, Lambert Smith Hampton, and Cushman & Wakefield, before joining The Howard de Walden Estate as Projects Surveyor.
David’s addition to Bridge’s UK team follows the swift growth of its UK operation. Established in November 2020, Bridge completed its first site acquisition in Southall in early May 2021, followed by two further acquisitions in Uxbridge and Barking in June, and Croydon in August 2021. Bridge acquired their largest site to date, 9 acres in Weybridge, in January 2022.
Paul Hanley, Bridges’ Partner, London, comments: “We are continuing with our ongoing acquisition programme to source development opportunities across Greater London, the South East, and The West Midlands for the delivery of last mile logistics facilities. The addition of David and his wealth of experience will help facilitate our development programme as we bring more sites to fruition. We are delighted to have him join the Bridge team.”
The announcement comes after Bridge secured planning consent for its first UK industrial development, Bridge Point Uxbridge. Bridge is actively pursuing land and development opportunities throughout Greater London, the South East, and the West Midlands.
