Construction contractor Henry Brothers Midlands has staged an official opening of its new premises after moving into larger offices as part of continued growth.
Northern Ireland-based company Henry Brothers established a Midlands division in Nottingham in 2015, originally operating from an office in Beeston.
Led by Henry Brothers Midlands Managing Director Ian Taylor, the company quickly cemented itself as a key operator in the East Midlands construction sector.
Now the company has relocated to a much bigger office in Eldon Road, Beeston, with its team of almost 60.
Members of the Henry Brothers main board attended the official opening event, including Chairman Emeritus Jim Henry, his sons, Group Managing Director David Henry and Group Director Ian Henry, his daughter HR Director Julie McKeown, Commercial Director Alan Mitchell and Financial Director Allen Reid.
Henry Brothers Chairman Emeritus Jim Henry said:
“This is a proud day, as we open new, much larger offices for our Midlands team. It’s been very pleasing for me to see how the Midlands division of Henry Brothers has grown and flourished in a relatively short space of time and I congratulate all those involved in the success.
“I am delighted to cut the ribbon to officially open the new offices and signal the next stage of development for Henry Brothers Midlands.”
Key personnel from the Henry Brothers Midlands team at the event included Midlands Managing Director Ian Taylor, Commercial Director John Fielding, Design and Planning Director John Sowter and Construction Director Justin Hicklin.
Ian Taylor added:
“Henry Brothers Midlands has experienced continued and sustained growth since being launched in 2015. In seven years we have grown to become a division with an annual turnover of £60m.
“We have built up strong relationships with a number of clients in the Midlands and beyond, including Nottingham Trent University, Loughborough University, Lincoln University, Staffordshire University and Derbyshire County Council.
“We are proud to have delivered first class schemes for the education sector, the blue light sector, the defence sector and others – providing both new-build and refurbishment services to our clients.
“Moving to a new office opens the next chapter for Henry Brothers Midlands, allowing us to maintain our growth in the Midlands and further afield. Our aim is to continue to offer clients an exceptional service, working in partnership to support them with their development plans.”
The new two-storey office in Beeston includes modern, flexible working spaces and more than doubles the space of the company’s previous Midlands headquarters.
Henry Brothers Midlands has delivered a number of significant projects since being launched in 2015 including the £30m refurbishment of the W & S buildings at Loughborough University, the new joint headquarters for Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service at Sherwood Lodge, and a new Alfreton Park School in Derbyshire.
The company has also delivered multiple schemes for Nottingham Trent University including the £9m Dryden Enterprise Centre, the new £23m Engineering building, the Medical Technologies Innovation Facility (MTIF), and the £15m Health and Allied Professions Centre – working to improve facilities on both the Clifton Campus and the Nottingham City Centre Campus.
Its current projects include the £9m SportPark Pavilion 4 Passivhaus scheme and a £3m Energy and Data Hub at Loughborough University, along with two projects at RAF Waddington and a £12m refurbishment of the Chemistry Building at The University of Manchester.
