Our team at Garness Jones are preparing for a move to new premises ourselves as we begin a new era based on Hull’s waterfront.
Having operated from Beverley Road for the past 19 years, we are to move into a three storey office building at Riverside House, 11-12 Nelson Street, next to the city’s historic pier and looking out over the River Humber.
The move coincides with the formation of a new overall parent company, Garness Group, which will oversee the ongoing work of Garness Jones and two more specialist property businesses.
Gro Residential Management, which provides property management services to professional residential landlords, and Pure Block Management, which offers management services for leasehold owners, freeholders and developers of residential developments, will also be based at Riverside House.
Both were previously operating under the brand name of Garness Jones Residential and will also form part of Garness Group from April 4th.
Offices provide space for individual businesses to grow as part of group structure
Dave Garness, managing director of Garness Group, says the move comes as the businesses have collectively outgrown the premises in Beverley Road – their home for the past 19 years.
“We recently announced our plans to restructure and rebrand to allow our three specialist property business areas to grow independently, under their own identities, whilst all operating under the collective strength, experience and guidance of the Garness Group,” said Mr Garness.
“When we moved into the Beverley Road premises in 2003, the business was only really focussed on commercial property, but we saw the premises as a base from which we’d be able to expand our team and grow our interests.
“That has happened and it has been a great base for us for almost two decades, but given our continued growth, and having expanded into having three very specific areas of work in commercial and residential property, we needed more space and offices which allow all of our teams to have their own space to grow, whist continuing to work together closely.
“Our new premises will be ideal for this as they provide a mix of open office spaces where we have been able to place teams close together as their work naturally crosses over, with a number of breakout areas and meeting pods for wider discussions.
“The premises also provide smaller offices and work areas which are ideal for the administration staff who look after all of our businesses as part of the Group, as well as key facilities such as high quality meeting rooms.
“We could have up to 30 people, working for three businesses, at any one time in our office, so having the right environment is vital.”
Businesses led by same directors and teams prior to restructure
The Garness Group businesses are managed and run by the same people and teams as prior to the recent restructure. They will move into Nelson Street in the first week in April.
“As a business which specialises in helping people get the best from their investments into properties, we are delighted to me moving into such a fantastic location right on Hull’s waterfront and close to the thriving Fruit Market community,” added Mr Garness.
“Of course, being on the waterfront and close to the Marina was a big attraction for us, as it would for any business.
“Our business has long-established links with the Marina and Fruit Market, from representing market traders many years ago to managing the residential development now, so it seems a natural home for us already.”
