Surveyors relocate to Birmingham
Chartered surveyor and commercial property consultancy Sanderson Weatherall has relocated its Midlands operation to a new office in Birmingham city centre.
Sanderson Weatherall has agreed a five-year lease over a whole floor at 122 Colmore Row with landlord Evenacre.
The new office is located in a Grade I Listed arts and crafts building and provides the firm with a city centre base, ideally situated close to Birmingham New Street Station.
Peter Fowles, partner and head of the Birmingham office, said: “This office move marks the next stage in the growth of Sanderson Weatherall’s presence and activity in the Midlands and comes at an exciting time when the city and region are undergoing a renaissance not seen since the post-war era.
“We were drawn to 122 Colmore Row thanks to its fantastic location with high class facilities, and we are very happy with the service provided by Evenacre and their letting agent CBRE.
“We are now well placed to deliver our distinct integrated approach to the provision of chartered surveying and property consultancy services to clients across the Midlands with local, regional or national requirements, and are confident that we can grow and further develop our offering from this impressive base.”
Sanderson Weatherall gained a presence in the Midlands in 2015 with the acquisition of Solihull-based PNF Chartered Surveyors, which was immediately rebranded as Sanderson Weatherall.
The Birmingham-based team now has the capacity to offer a full range of property and asset services across the Midlands and operates as part of the nationwide network of offices.
122 Colmore Row is also home to Court, Gethar Ventures, Clive Reeves PR and Java Lounge Coffee House.
Paul Jones, managing director of Evenacre, said: “Sanderson Weatherall is exactly the type of occupier we were targeting at the time of refurbishment. Peter and his team have fully bought into our sustainable approach to office development, together with appreciating our close attention to design and detail.”
Sanderson Weatherall employs around 200 people, has a turnover of £15m and operates nationwide from offices in Newcastle, Teesside, York, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, London, Bristol and Exeter.
The firm provides a complete range of property, machinery and business asset services across retail, residential, offices, industrial, leisure, roadside, healthcare, public sector and third sector.
