Real estate advisor Savills has completed the relocation of its Birmingham offices the city centre.
The move follows the firm’s significant expansion in the city with the acquisition of GBR Phoenix Beard in 2016 and will see all 156 staff based under one roof for the first time.
Simon Farrant, head of Savills Birmingham, said: “The quality, scale and prime location offered by 55 Colmore Row are an ideal fit with our ambitions to continue expanding and developing the Savills brand. With a mix of office, meeting and collaborative working space, the new office also reflects the changing and flexible way in which we work.”
The firm, which previously occupied space at Innovation Court and The Exchange, agreed a new 15-year lease for the 16,956 sq ft top floor of the property.
Paul Higman, director in the building and project consultancy team at Savills, added: “The project was delivered within a tight programme and to an exceptional standard, without compromising on design. The project team worked extremely closely together and in a communicative and cooperative manner to deliver a working environment that the Birmingham branch is very proud of.”
The move follows the recent announcement that the firm’s Birmingham branch has appointed Joe Shorney to head up the newly formed residential development sales team servicing the West Midlands.
The department adds further value to the 21-strong development team in Birmingham, which offers services to housebuilders and other developer clients.
