How GVA added value

Commencing in 1994 and ongoing since then, GVA has helped attract top quality office occupiers such as British Telecom, Lloyds Bank plc, Deloitte & Touche LLP, The Royal Bank of Scotland Group and Deutsche Bank to the extent that approaching one million sq ft of office accommodation is now virtually fully occupied. The last speculative office building, Eleven Brindleyplace, is currently under construction and due for completion in March 2009.

GVA has worked with Argent, the development scheme asset manager, throughout the whole life of the project and collectively continues to add value by ongoing strategic and operational management to the current owner, The Brindleyplace Limited Partnership and through improvements to services to tenants and occupiers alike.
