Surging workload sees building firm move to bigger base, aided by John Truslove

Major growth over the last year has led to a Redditch-based building and maintenance firm taking on more workers and tripling the size of its premises, aided by commercial property agents John Truslove.

Beaman Developments Ltd has seen its workload double over the last year, from maintaining facilities for a range of client companies to carrying out a string of home improvement projects.

The resulting growth has created new full time jobs at the firm as director Neill Beaman contacted commercial property experts John Truslove to find bigger premises.

Mr Beaman said: “John Truslove helped us find our last set of premises, so they were my first port of call when we decided we needed somewhere bigger.

“The ideal unit turned out to be over the road and wasn’t even being advertised when Ian Parker at John Truslove suggested it. It is three times the size of our previous unit. The process has been plain sailing; no hitches, no problems.”

Ian Parker, joint managing director at John Truslove, agreed a five year tenancy agreement with Beaman Developments Ltd on the 1,744 sq ft Unit 4 at Howard Road, on the popular Park Farm industrial estate in Redditch, at £10,000 per annum.

Neill Beaman founded his building and maintenance business in 2002 but has seen substantial growth over the last year, despite lockdown.

“We’ve built up a strong reputation for our work – most of our business comes through word of mouth from existing customers. Business has doubled over the last 12 months and I’ve been able to start employing tradespeople such as a bricklayer and a carpenter, so there are six of us working full time now.

“As well as home improvement projects, such as extensions, bathrooms and kitchens, we have seen more commercial work.

“We do regular premises maintenance and building work for a number of companies, most recently the Steamhouse Bakery bagel business. We worked on their new bakery and restaurant in Redditch as well as their branches in Worcester and Leamington Spa.”

Neill added: “One of the benefits of our bigger premises is that we can hold more stock, reducing the impact of the shortages in supply that have hit the building industry over recent months.”

Ian Parker said: “It is always satisfying to be able to help a thriving business find new premises to provide them with the platform for the next stage in their growth, and this is the second time we’ve worked with Neill and Beaman Developments Ltd.

“We have the widest portfolio of business premises across this area, so we are always in a position to help a business whatever its property needs.”
