PROP­ERTY con­sul­tancy GVA has signed a deal to con­tinue de­liver ing prop­erty man­age­ment ser­vices at Brind­ley­place in Birm­ing­ham.

The firm will de­liver ser­vices across a to­tal of 1.5 mil­lion sq ft on the es­tate, in­clud­ing of­fices at num­bers 3, 4, 5 and 6 Brind­ley­place, and the Oozells Build­ing, which is cur­rently un­der­go­ing a £4 mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment.

The ser­vices in­clude rent and ser­vice charge col­lec­tion, build­ing and fa­cil­i­ties man­age­ment, mar­ket­ing, com­mu­ni­ca­tions and events.

It also han­dles char­ity re­la­tion­ships and com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion op­por­tu­ni­ties for the pub­lic realm along­side man­age­ment and main­te­nance of the es­tate’s two pub­lic spa­ces, Cen­tral Square and Oozells Square.

GVA, which has been a ten­ant at Brind­ley­place for al­most three decades, has also un­der­taken cus­tomer and ten­ant re­search sur­veys, and launched sus­tain­abil­ity and well­be­ing ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing the in­stal­la­tion of rooftop bee­hives.

Brind­ley­place is Hines UK.

James Camp­bell Adam­son, as­set man­ager at Hines UK, said: “Be­ing based at Brind­ley­place en­sures GVA is well placed to pro­vide a rapid response to any occupiers’ needs.

“With the on­go­ing re­de­vel­op­ment of Birm­ing­ham, growth of the res­i­den­tial sec­tor in the area and up­com­ing de­liv­ery of the Mid­land Metro tram ex­ten­sion, there has never been a more im­por­tant time to en­sure that Brind­ley­place con­tin­ues to cre­ate the per­fect as­set man­aged by im­pres­sion for vis­i­tors and es­tate occupiers. As we are look­ing to put in place a num­ber of new changes and ini­tia­tives at the devel­op­ment, in­clud­ing the sub­stan­tial £4.1 mil­lion re­fur­bish­ment of the for­mer 9 Brind­ley­place into the Oozells Build­ing, which is due to com­plete shortly.

“It is there­fore vi­tal that we have a team in place that un­der­stands the needs of our occupiers and the po­ten­tial chal­lenges of a fast-paced, high­de­mand com­mer­cial real es­tate mar­ket.”

Guy Thomp­son, se­nior direc­tor at GVA, added: “Our key ob­jec­tive is to en­sure that Brind­ley­place re­mains not only a devel­op­ment of choice for occupiers seek­ing ac­com­mo­da­tion but also a vi­brant des­ti­na­tion of choice for leisure vis­i­tors with its im­pres­sive food, bev­er­age, arts, cul­ture, event and retail of­fers.

“As both a long-stand­ing sup­plier of prop­erty man­age­ment ser­vices to the es­tate and a Brind­ley­place oc­cu­pier our­selves, we have a unique per­spec­tive and un­der­stand­ing on the evolv­ing re­quire­ments of this devel­op­ment and are able to re­spond quickly to occupiers re­quire­ments.”
