New business growth brings expansion plans for Gleeds in Nottingham
Gleeds, has confirmed it is seeking new premises in Nottingham, having outgrown its current base at Wilford House on Clifton Lane.
Gleeds has had a presence in Nottingham since 1932 and its latest requirement to relocate comes as a result of its continued success in securing high profile contracts. Once identified, the new site is expected to accommodate 220 staff, including construction consultants, marketing and administration support services.
“Gleeds Nottingham provides cost and project management advice for clients across all industries, and has a growing asset management operation” said Anthony Cork, Director for Gleeds who went on to add, “We have seen growth in all of these areas and it is this continued expansion that has caused us to seek new premises.”
It was recently announced that Gleeds has been appointed to public sector owned built environment specialist Scape Group’s £350 million Built Environment Consultancy Services (BECS) framework as part of the Perfect Circle consortium -comprising Pick Everard, Gleeds and AECOM - which helps deliver vital public sector projects across the UK and is expected to bring new business to the area.
In addition, the office acts as the primary UK hub for much of Gleeds’ Indian business which has seen a considerable uptake in work over recent months. New wins include the cost management role on the £150m Surat Diamond Bourse scheme in Surat, Gujarat region, as well as the Brookefields Real Estates & Projects Private Limited scheme funded by Brigade Enterprises Ltd based in Banglaore, Southern India.
Anthony Cork, added: “With events like Nottingham in Parliament Day and the India-UK TECH Summit increasing the city’s profile on national and international stages, we want our business to be in the strongest position possible to support the region and its growth potential.”
