Posted on 23 December, 2015 by Chris Grigorovsky

As part of the ever growing strategy to extend its services throughout the UK, Newcastle based Silverstone Building Consultancy has recently completed a six-figure refurbishment of historic building, Merchant House in York city centre on behalf of North East developers, Hanro.

The specialist firm of building surveyors and project managers has said that this refurbishment is one of the many instructions they have recently completed outside of the North East region.

Director at Silverstone, Ben Hunter, commented: “We have recently been instructed on projects in North and South Yorkshire, Birmingham, Bristol and Stafford.

“This latest project in York demonstrates our ability to successfully deliver the same high level of service outside of the North East.”

He goes on to say that two new members of staff have been recently recruited and the firm are in a good position to start becoming a long-term advisor for clients on nationwide property portfolios.

Silverstone has previously conducted surveys on nationwide portfolios on behalf of Theakston Estates, One Stop, Sainsbury’s and Bond Dickinson.

The settlement from the Merchant House dilapidation has helped fund the refurbishment, resulting in the first floor being let out to Aspire Achieve Advance, for which Silverstone did the fit out as part of the tenant deal.

Mr. Hunter continued: “This project shows the positive outcome that can be quickly achieved when landlords have the confidence to take funds secured in a dilapidations settlement and reinvest it in their building, to bring the offering up to the standard the market demands.

“We have undertaken similar successful projects on listed office buildings in Newcastle city centre and we are keen to apply our skills and knowledge on a larger-scale, across other markets.”

Asset manager at Hanro, Erin Forest, added: “The building has been swiftly brought back to a lettable condition, enabling us to market it to potential occupiers. We are delighted the first floor has been let in such a short time frame.”
