The deal was on behalf of Futures Housing Group who had recently moved its operations from Ripley to a new 20,000 sq ft freehold office on Pegasus Business Park, Castle Donington.
OMEETO’s Chris Wright had tracked Futures relocation by maintaining close contact with Futures Housing Group’s acquisition agent, Jody Lauder of LPS Commercial.
Aware that, following extensive renovations, Futures intended to let the first floor of their new HQ building, Chris introduced a requirement circulated by leading global commercial real estate services firm, Avison Young. He was subsequently retained by Futures to broker the deal with Avison Young who were acting on behalf of Natwest plc; a major high street.
Chris Wright explained: “Having established a good working relationship with Jody and Futures Housing Group, I was able to match the surplus accommodation in the new headquarters building with the requirements of Nat West Plc through Avison Young before it was launched.
“This is a fantastic way of celebrating our first year in business and puts OMEETO firmly on the region’s commercial property map – proving that taking a proactive and customer-focused approach reaps rewards for all concerned.”
Futures Housing Group operates more than 10,000 affordable homes extending from Derbyshire down to the Daventry area and beyond and has ambitious plans to build up to 700 more homes by 2023.
The organisation also helps customers through a range of services designed to help them live well and independently. This includes offering money and employment advice and providing extra support to older customers and those with special needs.
Head of People Services Halinka Hepworth explained: “Having established a positive working environment and culture for our organisation at these new premises, we are delighted that OMEETO have secured the lease of the first floor to such a prestigious company.
“Both organisations will now benefit from this premium central location with unrivalled communications links and high quality facilities.”
