Eddisons strengthens south coast operation with Hampshire acquisition

National property consultancy Eddisons, has expanded its operation in the South East of England with the acquisition of Hampshire-based firm Daniells Harrison.

The Fareham-based valuation and property consultancy, which has offices in Bournemouth, East Sussex and on the Isle of Wight, will integrate its 27-strong team with Eddisons, which is headquartered in Leeds and has a network of 23 UK offices.

Established in 1992, Daniells Harrison acts for a range of financial institutions, property investors and businesses on the south coast.

The deal will enable Eddisons to better service its existing South East-based clients, while providing a wider range of services for Daniells Harrison’s own clients.

Eddisons director Anthony Spencer said: “I am very pleased to welcome the Daniells Harrison team to Eddisons, extending our geographical coverage across the south coast.

“Daniells Harrison have a highly experienced team with a proven track record in delivering high quality professional advice and I look forward to working with Chris Daniells and his colleagues as Eddisons continues to seek opportunities for further growth.”

Daniells Harrison director Chris Daniells said: “Through our talented team of people, we have developed an unrivalled presence within our region and we are excited to be joining Eddisons and developing the opportunities that the deal presents.”

The addition of Daniells Harrison to Eddisons’ operation follows the firm’s acquisition of London chartered surveyors Hargreaves Newberry Gyngell in February last year, and East of England commercial property agency Barker Storey Mathews in 2019. Eddisons now employs over 300 people and is one of the UK’s fastest growing property consultancies.

Eddisons shares highlights of 2021 and predictions for 2022

Eddisons shares highlights of 2021 and predictions for 2022

Businesses from across South Yorkshire were recently invited to discuss the highlights of 2021 and share their predictions for 2022 with Insider Media.

Adrian Lunn, head of Eddisons’ Sheffield office, shares his thoughts on the commercial property market, following a ‘rollercoaster of a year’ due to the challenges and economic uncertainty Covid has flung at the city.

“Since our launch we’ve been fortunate enough to work with a diverse range of clients that are helping to shape the future of Sheffield,” he said. “They include universities, local authorities, banks and government departments. In the summer we were appointed as an estate management services supplier to the Government’s national procurement framework, which means we can now deliver property support services to the public sector.

“Because the pandemic has changed work patterns, this is changing the nature of demand for city centre office space in Sheffield. We are seeing that it is very much down to individual organisations what their requirements will be as they adapt to living with the virus, and the professional firms we advise are taking many different approaches.

“Some will not desk-share, while others are looking at reducing their city centre footprint and opting for open-plan space in a suburban location with generous car parking. We’re continuing to see strong demand from developers for character buildings that will make interesting office refurbishment projects and we believe we may see grade A rents start to move up in 2022.”

Eddisons’ agency division, headed by partner Stephen Hawkins, operates from 9 offices across the UK including London, Cambridge, Peterborough, Liverpool and Leeds. The company have ambitious plans to expand into new locations through further acquisitions.

Eddisons staff get in the festive spirit to raise money for homeless charity

Property consultancy Eddisons is raising money for the homeless-support charity Shelter this Christmas by encouraging staff to donate cash or get themselves sponsored for wearing festive jumpers to work.

The firm’s 30-strong, Leeds-based building and project consultancy team, which last summer raised £7,000 in aid of the Brain Tumour Charity with an ambitious 5,000-mile physical challenge, have set their sights on raising £1,000 to support Shelter’s Christmas fundraising campaign.

Ian Harrington, who heads the building and project consultancy team, said: “Homelessness, or being stuck in unsafe housing, is one of the worst nightmares for many of us, especially at Christmas, so we’re really glad to be able to raise money for Shelter, which does such important work to help people in very vulnerable situations.

“Because of our work with school and college academy trusts, helping them to secure funding for improvements to their buildings and grounds through the Government’s Condition Improvement Fund (CIF), this has been an extremely busy few months for us. But now that all the CIF bids are safely in we wanted to do something festive that would give staff a bit of fun, and that everyone who is working from home can join in with.

“Needless to say, everyone has really got into the spirit of it and we’ve seen a full spectrum of Christmas jumpers, from the stylish to the downright dodgy!”
Eddisons have set up a Just Giving page for donations to Shelter at: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/eddisons-support-safe-housing
