Fully let sign goes up at former Daks Simpson factory

The former Daks Simpson factory

The former Daks Simpson factory in West Calder has reached full capacity after the final unit was let to the UK’s first soft play for dogs.

Paw Haus UK has agreed a 5-year lease on a 6,000 sq ft unit at an undisclosed rent and plan to provide puppy training, birthday events, day care and a ‘unique’ play zone.

The 35,000 sq ft building on Polbeth Industrial Estate was acquired in 2005 by entrepreneur Wayne Gardner-Young after it was closed by the clothing manufacturer Daks Simpson.

“This is an exciting new occupier for our client who has steadily reinvigorated the building from its previous heyday,” commented director of commercial agency (east), Iain Mercer.

In total, over the last 18 months, 10,000 sq ft of deals have been completed by Allied Surveyors’ east coast commercial agency with lettings to Cards Den, Booty Gym and CO2 Art Technologies.

“The Daks building has proved to be adept at providing a range of accommodation to suit various businesses from retail through to leisure,” added Mr Mercer.

In November, Allied Surveyors revealed it had been appointed to sell Bridgend & District Golf Club, also in West Lothian, where offers over £625,000 are being sought for the 35-acre site.
