Henry Boot to open of­fice


A DE­VEL­OP­MENT com­pany is open­ing its first Mid­lands of­fice in Birm­ing­ham.

Henry Boot Devel­op­ments has taken space in Bank House, Cherry Street.

The firm said the move would al­low it to cap­i­talise on op­por­tu­ni­ties in the wider Mid­lands re­gion.

Henry Boot’s new Birm­ing­ham base will bring its to­tal num­ber of UK of­fices to six.

Di­rec­tor Vivi­enne Cle­ments said: “Birm­ing­ham and the wider re­gion will ben­e­fit from sig­nif­i­cant in­vest­ment and re­gen­er­a­tion driven by in­fra­struc­ture im­prove­ments, most no­tably HS2.

“Es­tab­lish­ing an of­fice in the city will en­sure we re­main an ac­tive par­tic­i­pant in those con­ver­sa­tions dur­ing the com­ing months and years.”

Mid­lands re­gional man­ager Justin Shel­don added: “We have been fo­cus­ing on the Mid­lands as we see it as an area with great po­ten­tial for eco­nomic growth.

“Over the past three years, our pipeline of schemes in the re­gion has grown to in ex­cess of £200 mil­lion so the time was right for Henry Boot to open an of­fice in Birm­ing­ham.”
