We are delighted to announce the promotions of Rachel Hodge and Jack Emmins to Associate Director, in recognition of their positive contributions to the QS and PM divisions of the firm.
We have also welcomed two new members to the project management team; Tom White who has joined us from Ingleton Wood LLP, and Anna Baker who has joined us from Harrods’ internal project management team. They have both settled in very well and are already contributing to the smooth running of our ongoing projects.
The last 12 months have been very busy and we have successfully completed projects for Royal London, Blackrock UK, Jump Trading International Ltd, Mayfair Properties, Cheadle Properties, Mars Drinks and CBRE Global Investors.
We have also undertaken a significant number of professional instructions, including technical due diligence and dilapidations advice for clients. We were very pleased to have undertaken the investment acquisition survey for Trinova Real Estate at Grange Road Business Park, Christchurch, consisting of an office campus formed of 15 mixed use buildings, comprising approximately 150,000 sqft. YTL Hotels continue to keep the building surveying team engaged with over 125,000 sqft of pre-acquisition surveys, of 3 luxury hotel sites.
After several months of tough negotiations we are now in the delivery phase of the 100,000 sqft office headquarters for Abcam in Cambridge. This exciting project forms the gateway to Phase 2 of the Cambridge Bio-medical Campus and is due for completion in Q4 2018.
We have recently awarded contracts in Holborn and Cavendish Square, we are busy with the Planning Application for a distribution centre in Theale, undertaking various projects with new client Wing Tai Asia, and continuing to provide advice on Party Walls for a variety of clients.
Whilst the uncertainty of Brexit is having an impact on the construction industry, and tenants are holding off major decisions until the last minute, our landlord and investor clients are busy improving their portfolios by refurbishment and acquisition.
