Principal Matt Redd, CCIM, CRE, SIOR, announced today that his firm has completed a lease assignment of a 7,000-square-foot industrial property on 2.5 acres with KAEFER, the Germany-based, international provider of technical services in marine & offshore construction. The lease was completed by NAI Latter & Blum (Lake Charles office), an affiliate of NAI Global, and Matt Redd was the only broker involved.

The property and building, located at 1024 Ravia Road near S. Beglis Parkway in Sulphur, LA, is owned by a local investor. The MSA population for the area is approximately 200,000 and Sulphur is located in Calcasieu Parish.

Redd Properties facilitated and managed the speculative development of the building, which was recently completed. Tenant improvements for KAEFER are underway and the tenant has already occupied the building. The project architect was Jeff Kudla of Kudla Architecture, LLC.

According to Redd, KAEFER formerly occupied an industrial property in New Iberia, LA, and moved those operations to Sulphur after KAEFER won a contract to work on a new LNG plant in the area that is under construction.

More than $187.9 billion in industrial construction projects have been announced in Louisiana since 2012, based on figures tracked by economist and consultant Loren Scott. Work has commenced on about $72 billion of those projects, many of which are petrochemical related (as published in The Advocate in Baton Rouge 9.2, 2019). Handling and storage of liquid nitrogen requires thermal insulation, a type of insulation in which KAEFER is a global market leader.
