Landwood Group’s New Project And Building Consultancy Division Continues Its Winning Start With £82m Grant Thornton Portfolio

Landwood Group’s new Project and Building Consultancy Division is continuing its winning start after being instructed on a national portfolio of 62 commercial properties by Grant Thornton.

Located throughout the North West and London, the buildings consist of offices, car parks, supermarkets, retail units and residential dwellings with a combined value of £82million.

Landwood has provided reinstatement cost assessment valuations for the entire portfolio, completing the project in little over a month.

It’s the latest in a string of client wins from directors Chris Mann and John Edwards, who established the division in September.

To date property firms, administrators and private investors have benefited from their dynamic, director-led commercial advice, fine-tuned from over 35 years in the industry.

These include developers RBH Properties and London And Scottish Property Investment Management who have recently instructed Landwood on projects totalling £7million.

Landwood has been engaged by RBH to act as Employer’s Agent and Quantity Surveyor on the mixed-use Lydstep Terrace scheme in Bristol.

The project involves the demolition of a derelict factory and the construction of nine family townhouses, a nursery, office and cafe premises.

London And Scottish Property Investment Management meanwhile have instructed Landwood on the refurbishment of a 127,000 ft warehouse in Bromborough, Merseyside.

John Edwards, joint Director of Landwood Group’s Project and Building Consultancy Division commented: “Given the economic uncertainties, expert advice that drives meaningful commercial results is now more vital than ever for clients.

“Myself, Chris and the team are proud to provide support that can really move the dial.

“We’ve hit the ground running since setting up the division in September and are delighted to be providing our best-in-class services for a renowned business like Grant Thornton as well as top-flight developers like London And Scottish Property Investment Management and RBH.

“And we look forward to continuing to help our clients navigate this rapidly shifting landscape as we head into the new year and beyond.”

The division offers advice across the whole life cycle of assets with typical instructions including project management, dilapidations, acquisitions and disposals.
