Graham + Sibbald are pleased to announce that further to the opening of the firms Manchester office in March 2019, the team have rapidly expanded both in their service offering and staff numbers.
Having recently toasted their four year anniversary, the Manchester office, which historically focused solely on Building Surveying services, now boasts specialist teams operating across Commercial Valuation, Commercial Agency, Hotel + Leisure and Architecture services with a total staff number increase of 174%.
Chartered Building Surveyor and Partner at Graham + Sibbald, Kyle Hargreaves, who was the first employee within the Manchester office, commented, “The growth that we have seen in recent years, despite the pandemic and the economic uncertainty, has been incredible. As Graham + Sibbald have expanded across England, allowing us to further introduce additional service lines, we’ve been able to better service our clients and meet their specific needs at a greater level.”
“It has brought me a lot of joy to welcome so many team members and to be increasing our brand awareness and market share across Manchester and the rest of the UK. The market is holding strong and we aim to make the most of it for as long as we can.”
Graham + Sibbald’s Manchester office has also acted as a base for many other departments operating across the business such as Asset Services, Business Rates, Planning + Development and Lease Consultancy.
Martin Davis, Partner within the Hotel + Leisure department commented, “Since joining Graham + Sibbald 18 months ago, the team in Manchester have been going from strength to strength and we’ve seen some fantastic deals over the line across Manchester, Birmingham, The Lake District and more.”
“Working alongside my colleagues Hugh Anderson in Manchester, James Williamson in London and the rest of the team in Scotland, our Hotel + Leisure team are well placed to deliver a highly professional and personable service across the UK.”
The Manchester team has grown at such pace that they took additional office space within 49 King Street in order to accommodate the ongoing growth, operating now over two floors.
Director and Commercial Property Agent, Conor Mulloy, commented, “I’ve been at Graham + Sibbald for just over 12 months now and commercial activity has remained strong. We’ve completed a number of key deals in addition to many more lettings, disposals and lease renewals for a variety of clients. Our team continues to work with operators to secure new units across Manchester and beyond.”
Carole Latham, Director and Architect at Graham + Sibbald, commented, “The collaborative approach between multiple disciplines was the primary reason I joined G+S in 2022. Combining breadth of commercial knowledge with specialist experience delivers joined up thinking the property sector requires. In just under a year our Architecture team has grown well, met clients old and new, and delivered several engaging projects from Lewes to Benbecula.
Common to all of these are Net Zero journeys, embedding Social value and Adaptive Re-Use. Integral to our design approach and returning evidenced value for every stakeholder. With exciting projects on the drawing board to take forward, it’s going to be a busy year ahead.”
Graham + Sibbald has over 250 employees and 30 Partners working across its 21 offices in Scotland and England.
