Adair is delighted to announce the opening of a Midlands office and appointment of a Regional Head.
The new venture will be led by Rachel Titley, a Chartered Quantity Surveyor with more than 20 years’ experience in property and construction. Her past clients include banks, insurance companies, legal firms, utilities, government organisations and public services. She specialises in the refurbishment and new build of sustainable commercial offices and mixed-use facilities.
Rachel, who lives in Willington in Derbyshire, comments “I’m very excited to become part of Adair and to be able to deliver projects and grow networks in the Midlands while being based in my home town is a special opportunity for me”.
Having a base in Derby allows the firm to exceed the quality of service received by Adair’s existing project monitoring, quantity surveying and building surveying clients in the North. The demand-led move demonstrates Adair’s appetite for further developing relationships with property and construction professionals in the Midlands and surrounding areas.
2018 saw several reports predict strong economic growth in the Midlands and claim that while the London property market was cooling the Midlands was thriving. The relocation of several financial service firms, including HSBC, from London to Birmingham, and the city’s successful regeneration, has further boosted the area.
Adair is no stranger to reaching outside of London and has delivered international projects from its offices in Gibraltar, Epsom and Central London. Justin Sullivan, Adair Founder and RICS Global & UK Chair of the Quantity Surveying and Construction Professional Group boards, says “The combination of Rachel’s local knowledge and Adair’s national and international experience means that we can deliver an outstanding service to clients, whatever their property and construction needs”.
As Adair’s clients increasingly venture into the property market outside of London and Surrey, 2019 promises to see the company continue to strengthen its nationwide and global offering.
