OBI Property’s Building Consultancy team have been appointed by leading housing provider Your Housing Group to advise on their new 35,000 sq ft head office at MEPC’s Birchwood Park, the North West’s leading out of town business park. OBI have provided development consultancy advice on the terms of the leasehold transaction and will be monitoring the 12 month base build construction through to procurement and project management of the fit-out works.
Your Housing Group was formed in April 2012 from the merger of Manchester-based Harvest Housing Group and Liverpool-based Arena Housing Group. The combined stock is 32,000 properties across the North West, Yorkshire and Midlands. The group has an estimated turnover of £150m.
Dominic Horridge head of OBI’s Building Consultancy department, added “This is an extremely interesting project to be involved in and developing a new office has enabled our client to gain a new facility which will cater for the specific requirements of this major North West business.”
MEPC commenced construction of the new Your Housing Group head office this month and the new office building is expected to be completed in March 2014.
