Gleeds has had an ever-growing presence in the East Midlands since 1932 but its latest property search was necessitated by its continued success in securing high profile contracts across the region.
The business is currently appointed to city centre projects worth over £100m, including the massive regeneration of the Boots Island site, the landmark City Buildings redevelopment for Shoby Properties, Nottingham College’s new College City Hub, and Miller Birch’s complete transformation of Guildhall Place in Nottingham city centre.
The new office is adjacent to the business’ existing satellite operation at the Ruddington Lane site and fulfils the company’s ambition to merge its two teams. The company will now occupy 20,000 sq ft of bespoke office space across the two buildings, accommodating 210 members of staff including project managers, cost consultants, facilities managers, health and safety, building surveyors, marketing teams and administration support services.
Anthony Cork, director for Gleeds in Nottingham said of the move: “Gleeds has been searching for a suitable home for our Nottingham business for some time and by acquiring the building at Apex we are delighted to have been able to bring our teams back together at one location. FHP, the property manager, has supported us in acquiring the additional space in order to undertake an extensive refurbishment of both premises and enabled us to provide a state-of-the-art workspace for our staff, with excellent links to the city centre.”
“We have seen consistent growth across our project management and asset management arms in recent years, providing advice for an increasing number of clients in the UK and abroad from our East Midlands base. It is this sustained success which has led to our seeking new premises and we fully intend to continue our expansion going forward,” Cork added.
Gleeds Nottingham can be found at Apex Business Park, Ruddington Lane, Wilford, Nottingham, NG11 7DD.
