Phil Daniels has joined FHP Property Consultants as a Director working from their Nottingham office.
His recent experience includes running his own property consultancy providing transactional and development advice to a range of private and public sector clients, as well as two and a half years at senior level in local government, including a position as Head of Property Development at Nottingham City Council and as Head of Asset Management at Newark and Sherwood District Council. He has extensive knowledge and experience dealing with publicly owned property assets in Nottingham and the wider East Midlands area.
Whilst at Newark and Sherwood District Council he was involved in numerous projects including the sale of their 90,000 sq ft Headquarters (Kelham Hall); land assembly for the forthcoming Sports Hub; and the commencement of development of a new £12.0m leisure centre on Bowbridge Road.
At Nottingham City Council he was involved in large scale regeneration projects including the refurbishment of the historic Sneinton Market, sale of assets for redevelopment into student accommodation, marketing of surplus sites including the 3.5 acre Beechdale Baths site and the future redevelopment of the three acre Guildhall site in Central Nottingham.
His experience extends to European Regeneration Development Fund regeneration projects and the purchase of property investments to provide revenue income for public bodies whose government grants have been substantially cut. He is well placed to advise public bodies on how to maximise income and return from their property assets. Likewise his knowledge of the workings of local government will be invaluable to private sector property owners dealing with the public sector. He will shortly be commencing work as part of the team selling the Rushcliife Civic Offices on Trent Bridge on behalf of Rushcliffe Borough Council and is rendering advice to Broxtowe Borough Council on a variety of their property assets.
At FHP he will work closely alongside founding Director, David Hargreaves, on agency, investment and development sector work across property categories including retail, leisure, residential and mixed use. His previous work in the East Midlands including a period as a Development Director at Henry Davidson Developments has given Phil extensive experience closely aligned to FHP’s niche insight into the local area.
Phil is well known to FHP having originally established their Derby office in 2004.
David Hargreaves comments:
“FHP have a number of local authority clients, including Nottingham City Council, Broxtowe Borough Council and Rushcliffe Borough Council who we are about to sell the Rushcliffe Civic Centre for at Trent Bridge, so Phil’s knowledge of the workings of Local Government will be a major bonus for FHP and our clients. However, Phil brings far more than that to the FHP table. He has been a developer and he has been an agent in Birmingham and Derby and I cannot think of any surveyor with such a wide ranging and quality CV. Having worked for us 8 years ago it is a ‘coming home’ for him.”
Phil Daniels comments:
“FHP are the pre eminent practice in Nottingham and the wider East Midlands area. I look forward to using my extensive experience in both the public and private sectors and working with clients in both sectors to maximise the value and return they receive from their property assets.”
