B.E. Webbe Self Storage recently completed the first phase in converting a former woodworking plant in Rotherham, England. The Mangham Road facility comprises 20,000 square feet in 105 units. The second phase of construction is expected to begin next April and will add another 20,000 square feet of storage space, according to a source.
B.E. Webbe acquired the property in December for £1 million and has invested £300,000 on the conversion. Phase one was built in what’s known as Unit One of the property and included demolition of some structures, a mezzanine-floor replacement, and the construction of a new office, reception area and storage space, the source reported. The facility also includes loading bays, restrooms and security-video cameras.
“There is a definite need for such a self-storage facility in the Rotherham area,” said Richard Blount, director. “We are catering for anybody who has anything to store, whether it’s personal and home effects, business or archive items. We are looking to open more self-storage facilities there in due course.”
B.E. Webbe operates six other self-storage facilities in England.
