Workman, the UK’s largest independent commercial property management and building consultancy firm, has been appointed by Brookfield as property manager on a portfolio of 9 major retail assets including Central Retail Park in Falkirk, Cleveland Retail Park in Middlesbrough, Cyfarthfa Retail Park in Merthyr Tydfil and Rugby’s Elliott’s Field Shopping Park amongst others.

Brookfield recently acquired the 232,195 sq m retail portfolio in transactions with Hammerson and Nuveen Real Estate, which includes over 280 occupiers.

The new appointment will complement Workman’s existing property management remit across over 17m sq ft of retails parks, for which Workman was recently ranked 2nd largest managing agent in the industry-leading Trevor Wood Associates Definitive Guide to Retail & Leisure Parks 2021.

Nick Hilton, Partner – Workman Retail & Leisure, commented: “Being appointed by Brookfield on this significant retail portfolio is testament to the skills and expertise we have demonstrated in managing these assets. We have developed strong and effective relationships with many of the leading national occupiers present here, and look forward to working with both retailers and Brookfield to continue to drive footfall and enhance the performance of these schemes.”
