RICS makes city move to Col­more Row

Birmingham Post - - BUSINESS -

THE Royal In­sti­tu­tion of Char­tered Sur­vey­ors is re­lo­cat­ing its West Mid­lands team to Col­more Row in Birm­ing­ham city cen­tre.

The pro­fes­sional trade body an­nounced in April that it was plan­ning to leave its home in Coven­try after slug­gish progress on the city’s Fri­ar­gate devel­op­ment.

It has an­nounced it will be tak­ing up res­i­dence in the newly re­fur­bished 55 Col­more Row build­ing early next year after agree­ing a deal for the whole of the fifth floor and half of the ground floor.

RICS will join ten­ants such as prop­erty con­sul­tancy Sav­ills and law firm Pin­sent Ma­sons.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Sean Tomp­kins said: “We have for a long time looked to move our oper­a­tional head­quar­ters from Coven­try and we are pleased to an­nounce that we will be mov­ing into cen­tral Birm­ing­ham come 2018.

“55 Col­more Row not only gives us a more flex­i­ble space, it brings us into the cen­tre of a sig­nif­i­cant city al­low­ing us the op­por­tu­nity to bet­ter en­gage the pro­fes­sion, em­ploy­ers of the pro­fes­sion and raise aware­ness and in­spire the next gen­er­a­tion.”

The move will coincide with the RICS’ 150th an­niver­sary.
