The client is to redevelop part of the upper floors for residential development and Peill & Company’s Building Surveying department is handling all conversion works to the upper floors. Simon Adams, Managing Director of Peill & Company commented ‘we were pleased to be able to acquire the freehold interest in the whole block of property in Ulverston, since our clients’ already owned parts of the building subject to long leases. Bringing the whole block under one ownership enables us to unlock some value from the upper floors’.
