Dodds Brown Investment for Growth

17 June 2015

A leading Teesside commercial property consultancy is making a major investment to take advantage of the area’s strengthening commercial property market.

Middlesbrough-based chartered surveying firm Dodds Brown LLP is investing in new personnel, a new brand identity, a direct marketing video, a revamped website and a public relations campaign, in order to boost its services in key market sectors.

Already the largest independent commercial property surveying practice headquartered on Teesside, with dedicated agency, professional and property management teams, new positions at Dodds Brown will include a specialist Facilities Manager, who has already been appointed, along with new members of its consultancy and agency teams.

The brand and marketing campaign will position Dodds Brown as providing profit-led insights which look beyond bricks and mortar, based on the practice’s 125 year history and the combined property experience, in excess of 100 years, of its senior management team.

Stephen Brown, Dodds Brown senior partner, who has worked in commercial property in Teesside for more than 30 years, said: “We are already in a strong position with particular expertise in development and acquisitions, commercial agency, property management, and valuation work.  With the commercial property market improving we want existing clients and potential clients to be aware of some of the key projects we have been involved in recently and the full range of services that we can offer, so we can attract more clients and be sure we have the resources to cope with a significant increase in business.

“We already act for many of Teesside’s key businesses such as Nifco UK, Charles Clinkard, Psyche, Lookers, and Barkers of Northallerton. We also act for public sector bodies such as Tees Valley Unlimited and Middlesbrough, Stockton and Redcar & Cleveland councils, as well as developers and investors such as Terrace Hill, Northumberland Estates and the Dundas Shopping Centre, to the oil, gas and offshore sector such as NOF Energy and York Potash, but we are keen to extend our services even further, via our new marketing campaign.”

Recent major instructions for Dodds Brown include phase three of the development of car parts manufacturer Nifco UK’s new manufacturing facility in Eaglescliffe; the relocation of family footwear retailer Charles Clinkard’s £3m head office to Cannon Park Middlesbrough; marketing of new offices and industrial units at Wynyard Park on behalf of Northumberland Estates, and a feasibility study for a new business park for Middlesbrough Council.  Dodds Brown is also advising York Potash on the acquisition of sites near Teesport for its processing and port related facilities.
