Keepmoat’s new hub for property services

COMMUNITY regeneration and housebuilding firm Keepmoat is to relocate more than 100 staff to a newly refurbished office building in Holbeck, Leeds.

Keepmoat will move from its current base on the Cross Green Industrial Estate to No 1 Bowling Green before the end of August.

The new office will become the hub for Keepmoat Property Services (KPS), a national provider of repair and maintenance services for local authorities, housing providers, insurance companies, police authorities and private homeowners.

Investor and developer Rushbond, which is based in Leeds, let the office building to Keepmoat after the two-storey 10,100 sq ft building underwent a six-figure refurbishment programme. Chartered surveying firms Carter Towler and Harvey Burns acted as agents on the development.

Mike Edwards, managing director at KPS, said: “Property services is one of four key areas within Keepmoat which has seen significant growth over the last 12 months.

“The division recently secured work from the Leeds City Council PFI (private finance initiative) scheme and this office will be the national head office for the property services business, supporting a number of operational depots with its 24/7 call centre facility, commercial, finance, procurement, marketing and business development functions.

“It will also provide our Yorkshire operational base, serving clients across the county.”
