Housebuilder gets help finding new Midlands home of its own

A West Midlands commercial agent has helped one of the UK’s leading housebuilders find a home of its own in the region.

Crest Nicholson will move into a new Midlands regional office at Pacific House in Tamworth in August after being assisted by Jonathan Moore, director of Shortland Penn + Moore – which has offices in Birmingham and Coventry.

The new 7,500 sq ft base will be home to the developer’s new Midlands division and is part of Crest Nicholson’s ongoing growth after hitting sales of £1billion in 2016.

Around 60 staff in a range of roles will be based at the office and will operate across Birmingham and the West Midlands and extend into Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.

Jonathan Moore said: “I was approached by a close contact at Crest Nicholson who wanted to expand and launch a new Midlands office.

“After an extensive region-wide search, we settled on Pacific House as it met the company’s needs perfectly.

“Tamworth is a great place to be able to access the whole region – it’s on Birmingham’s doorstep but also offers superb access around the whole of the Midlands.

“We are, of course, delighted to be working with such a major name in housebuilding and we are very pleased to have assisted the company in finding a home of its own in the Midlands.”

Ben Miller, Managing Director at Crest Nicholson Midlands said: “Crest Nicholson is currently enjoying strong growth across all areas and we are eager to get to work, building high-quality sustainable communities across the Midlands region.

“Our new office in Tamworth is perfectly situated to give us a central base for our operations, whilst being easily accessible for staff and suppliers.

“We are very grateful to Shortland Penn + Moore for the assistance they gave us. They were extremely helpful and supportive throughout the process and had great knowledge of the office market in the area. That mix was exactly what we needed to find the perfect Crest Nicholson Midlands base.”

Adrian Griffith, of GVA, acted for the landlord.
