Property consultancy doubles its city centre office space

Leeds property consultancy, GV&Co, has expanded into new city centre offices as part of its ongoing expansion programme.

GV&Co has relocated into a 2,800 sq ft office suite on the fourth floor of Carlton Tower on St Paul’s Street, which is double the size of its previous office in the same building, where the team have been based since 2010.

The company, which celebrated 20 years in business at the end of last year, currently employs a 17-strong team and has invested in a major fit-out in the new office to create an open-plan layout, breakout areas, four meeting rooms and a large boardroom.

Services within the firm include industrial agency, building surveying and project management, investment, and lease advisory and asset management.

Gavin Ritchie, a director from GV&Co, said: “In the last couple of years we have recruited across all our divisions, as well as launching a specialist lease advisory and asset management service.

“We had outgrown our previous office, so when the opportunity arose to expand in Carlton Tower, which has been a superb base for us for almost 14 years, in the heart of Leeds city centre’s property and professional services district, it made perfect sense.

“The new office offers a very high quality work environment, with great meeting rooms and staff breakout areas, and it’s a brilliant way to follow our twentieth anniversary.

“In the past two decades we have evolved hugely from solely being an industrial agent, even though it will always be a big part of what we do and a particular area of expertise.

“Our investment team has developed a formidable reputation for advising both institutional and private investors, as well as everyone in between, on the sale and acquisition of all types of commercial property throughout Yorkshire and beyond.

“Our building surveying and project management division is busier than ever, with their national coverage working for institutions and private investors.

“Plus, our lease advisory and asset management division, which launched two years ago, is also doing very well, advising both landlords and tenants on rent reviews, lease renewals and lease restructuring opportunities.

“Crucially, this new office gives us the space to continue growing and recruiting in all our divisions for the foreseeable future.”
