The framework is latest project in the company’s 90 year association with the brand and follows a string of wins for the Birmingham team across the retail, residential, industrial and health sectors.
Recent projects include the £30 million Circle Health development in the city, a substantial warehousing provision on behalf of Opus Land in Warwickshire, as well as a host of housing schemes throughout the region for the likes of Spitfire and Prosperous Global China (PGC).
Director of Gleeds in Birmingham, Lindsay McCombe, said: “Gleeds has a long standing relationship with Marks and Spencer so I am delighted to have been reappointed in these pivotal roles for the next three years. Our proven track record with brands like M&S, as well as with clients in other buoyant sectors across the West Midlands has seen our Birmingham operation grow at a rate of nearly 20% year-on-year since 2015”.
This continued success has necessitated considerable expansion of the office, with a total of 16 new staff joining the business in the last 12 months. Appointments range from graduate level placements and project support positions, to senior project managers and quantity surveyors, with the most recent addition being Sean Byrne as director of tenant management services.
Lindsay McCombe went on to say: “This is a really exciting time for Gleeds and the Midlands generally, with the launch of the Midlands Engine Strategy (MES) this time last year we are now seeing the realisation of the Government’s commitment to making the area a ‘powerful engine for economic growth’. We fully intend to take advantage of the opportunities the MES presents”.
