National property and construction consultancy Wakemans has been commissioned by office technology sales and service provider Midshire Business Systems on a £2.2 million head office extension and refurbishment project, reflecting continued growth for the building surveying team.
Wakemans will provide Midshire with a complete design and build service with full project management to re-develop the new facility at West Bromwich, which starts on site this month. The project will result in a larger headquarters for Midshire including an expansion of office facilities, warehouse and workshop space from 20,000 up to 25,000 square feet with parking for 100 cars; creating a contemporary, professional environment for the growing organisation.
Wakemans Associate Director Adrian Cartwright believes that this project represents a new mood of optimism for businesses that are now willing to invest as the outlook for the economy continues to improve.
“We are experiencing more enquiries as companies that had put projects on hold are starting to dust off their plans and move forward with their investments,” he says.
“Our comprehensive building surveying service provides clients with a fast, reliable and cost effective solution that enables them to carry on with their business whilst we provide much needed new facilities.”
Midshire Managing Director Phil Powell reflects on the company’s growth plans and why Wakemans were the obvious choice in project partners.
“We have seen continued and steady growth since the company started 24 years ago. This has been accelerated over recent years by expanding our portfolio of products and services as well as increased brand awareness through marketing campaigns, sponsorship and charity work. This is a significant investment for us and I’m pleased to say that building is commencing the month after our best ever month on record.
Wakemans have been on hand to explore all of our options and provide excellent recommendations and advice. With a full-range of professional services and being a local supplier they were the obvious choice for appointment.”
