Charter Point becomes first home for engineering consultants

7th May 2010

Leading Midlands developer Cedar House Investments has announced the sale of further office space at Charter Point, its five-acre, flagship office development in Ashby.

The company, which scooped the title of Property Company of the Year at the 2009 Regional Estates Gazette Awards and has been shortlisted again this year, has sold number five, Charter Point to ID Butt Consulting, which specialist engineering services predominantly to the gas industry.

ID Butt Consulting, which was founded five years ago, has chosen the high profile business park as its first official headquarters. The company’s team previously worked from home but now requires a dedicated base from which it can continue its expansion programme. The company currently employs four members of staff but has plans to recruit additional staff.

I D Butt Consulting was represented by Alex Reid of Mather Jamie, who secured the property and sale on their behalf.

Cedar House investments’ Charter Point scheme provides prestigious office facilities ranging in size from 1,500 ft2 – 50,000 ft2 and is strategically located close to the M1, M6 and A50 road links. Each building offers flexible, quality office accommodation with a self contained identity for each occupier and generous car parking within a landscaped environment.

The scheme has proven extremely popular, with only one unit now remaining for sale or to let.

Explaining the reasons for choosing Charter Point, Ian Butt, managing director at I D Butt Consulting, said:

“The high quality of Cedar House Investments’ Charter Point scheme, coupled with its proximity to the major motorway interchanges, made it the ideal location for our new headquarters.”

Chris Carlisle, managing director of Cedar House, added:

“Charter Point is becoming a commercial centre of growing importance and has already attracted high profile names including Miller Homes, Bloor Homes, TNT and Progress Accountants.

“The scheme provides a unique opportunity for companies looking to buy or rent high quality, purpose-designed office accommodation; it continues to attract considerable interest from established local companies who are keen to take advantage of the scheme’s excellent location and from businesses outside the area looking to relocate to Ashby,” added Chris.

Alex Reid director of Mather Jamie added:

“The offices at Charter Point are ideally suited to the needs of a growing business like ID Butt Consulting, which has a national customer base.”
