Serco House, a 24,027 sq ft pavilion style two storey building was acquired for the sum of £4,671,000 from Kennedy Wilson by way of a partial re-investment of the proceeds of the sale of 89 Albert Embankment.

CGIS intends to retain the property within its portfolio for two to three years enabling the company to benefit from future asset management opportunities. Bartley Wood Business Park is strategically located 45 miles south west of central London in an affluent commuter town attracting a wide range of large commercial clients.
