Your Industrial Property Team

Founding Partner of Sixteen Real Estate, Andy Backhouse, has been a leading expert in the industrial sector since 2002.

We pride ourselves on our market knowledge, ability to deliver deals for both acquisitions and disposals of industrial assets. Our clients range from large international property funds and development companies to

individual owner occupiers and SME’s.

Asset Management

Optimise Value

We work in conjunction with property owners, existing fund and asset managers to ensure that the full value is extracted from the asset.

We examine all the elements of each property to apply tailor-made strategies for every asset. This includes rental growth initiatives, monitoring key lease events, lettings, rebranding and development which together

drives and optimises value.


We understand that property acquisitions are an important element of an occupier’s business but in most cases it is not their core function. We look to assist our clients with this process to ensure a smooth, pain free

and successful acquisition.

Our unrivalled market knowledge combined with our extensive network of contacts enables us to secure opportunities both on and off-market. We provide occupier support from inception to completion.
