Garrison Barclay Estates


the business of property

Since establishing Garrison Barclay Estates in Cardiff in 1995, we have developed an excellent track record in property investment and development across South Wales, with a high reputation for purchasing properties.

We specialise in identifying the latent value of property situations and transforming them into viable, modern buildings for business, commercial and residential needs.

As well as our experience in purchasing existing buildings for refurbishment and redevelopment, we design and construct new build projects for owner occupier, investment, or rental purposes.

Above all, we pass on to owner occupiers the benefits of our expertise in the purchase and leaseback of property, providing them with fully managed turnkey property solutions and leaving them free to focus on their core activity while we maximise the value of the property.

With a strong focus on office and industrial markets, our client portfolio includes pension funds, national and local companies, owner occupiers and investors.

Our goals for the future are to extend our foothold across south wales and to continue playing our part in the regeneration of local communities.

breathing new life into property

The downturn in the manufacturing sector has led to many sites being abandoned and deemed too big or in too poor condition for today’s business needs.

Our forte is our ability to redevelop obsolete buildings and breathe new life into them for existing and alternative uses.

Our reputation in the field of regeneration has been gained by placing emphasis on client/developer relationships to achieve the highest standards of quality and service.

We specialise in the redevelopment of part or whole shells of industrial and office buildings. This includes the upgrade or renewal of mechanical and electrical services, re-presentation and re-configuration of common parts and reception areas.

In recent months we have acquired a number of buildings which have been neglected for varying periods of time. Buildings like 3 Alexandra Gate which has undergone a Grade A refurbishment, transforming it from a tired office building into a development which offers bright, modern spaces with all the touches a company would expect in todays’ office market, such as air conditioning and LED lighting throughout.

GB Estates are constantly on the lookout for new opportunities such as, Land acquisition, Land swaps, Design & Build projects and Joint Ventures.

property for industry

Large or small, industrial space must always work for business. Our strength is to make this happen, whatever the requirement.

We work with national and international companies and organisations in both the public and private sectors and pride ourselves on our customer satisfaction levels.

Developing and maintaining excellent client relationships through meticulous attention to detail is our formula for success and our pathway to ensuring that requirements are met in full.

We believe that our innovative, responsible approach to development is the key factor in obtaining planning consent, particularly in sensitive situations.

Our growing reputation with planning authorities and our strong track record of on-time completion of projects has singled us out for preferences by many landowners and their advisers.

We are currently developing our plans for Westfield Industrial Estate where we are rationalising the employment offering and creating a truly mixed-use offering which ties in with the wider plans in the emerging Swansea Council Local Development Plan.
