Property consultancy Eddisons has strengthened its presence in South Yorkshire with its new Sheffield office, featuring a 13-strong team of property professionals.

The team is headed by director Adrian Lunn, who left his role as Lambert Smith Hampton’s regional director for South Yorkshire and the East Midlands to establish Eddisons’ operation in the city. Lunn was joined earlier this year by former LSH colleagues James Dale, who heads Eddisons’ Sheffield valuations team, and plant and machinery valuations specialist Abbie Hickman.

Earlier this month Eddisons’ acquisition of long-established Sheffield firm of chartered surveyors, Fernie Greaves saw additional colleagues join the firm’s South Yorkshire operation. Further hires are planned for the coming months as the consultancy, which is already one of the region’s largest property consultancies, grows its presence in Sheffield.

This summer, in a major win for the firm, Eddisons was appointed as a supplier to the Government’s £500m Crown Commercial Service estate management services framework, enabling the business to provide property support services to the public sector.

Adrian Lunn said: “It’s exciting that we are playing an instrumental role in the major changes that are happening in South Yorkshire as regeneration projects take shape and Sheffield becomes an even better city in which to live and work.

“We have hit the ground running: having only launched the new office at the start of the year we are already working with a diverse range of clients in the region, including banks, universities, local authorities and government departments.”

Eddisons’ 13-strong Sheffield office offers a full range of services including agency, valuation, property management, lease advisory and building consultancy.

The acquisition of Fernie Greaves is Leeds-based Eddisons’ second this year, after the firm acquired London chartered surveyors HNG in February. With further deals in the pipeline for 2022, Eddisons currently employs more than 300 people across 21 UK offices.
