Savills Development Team Scoops Award


Savills development team has picked up the award for Residential Property Consultancy of the Year at the Midlands Residential Property Awards.

The real estate services provider scooped the prize at the first ever Midlands Residential Property Awards ceremony last week at Birmingham’s Metropole Hotel.

The gala dinner celebrated the achievements of the residential sector in the Midlands and was hosted by former politician Gyles Brandreth in front of a packed house.

The award for Residential Property Consultancy of the year went to the Savills Midlands development team, coming out on top above rival firms Bilfinger GVA and Knight Frank.

The firm’s superb joint ventures particularly impressed the judges, along with its expertise in both urban and rural projects.

Savills Nottingham Development Director, Ben Glover, collected the award on behalf of the Midlands team and commented: “We are delighted to have won Residential Property Consultancy of the Year, demonstrating our strength and unity as a team. For Savills, it’s not just about development, but about creating aspirational places where people want to live and gaining recognition for our efforts makes it all even more worthwhile.”

Head of the Midlands development team, Barry Allen, said that the award was a great testament to the dedication and hard work of their Midlands team which covers the breadth of the West and East Midlands from their offices in Birmingham and Nottingham.

“I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them all on this success,” he added.

Meanwhile, last month Savills strengthened its UK management team with the acquisition of Chainbow Ltd, a specialist residential management business.

The company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Roger Southam, established Chainbow in 1989 and now employs 28 staff members, all of whom will now move to Savills with immediate effect.

Chainbow specialises in the build to rent, private rented and residential block management sectors, and provides consultancy services and property management services to a number of clients including Westrock, Englander Group and Taylor Wimpey.
