Hewitt Street, Manchester

Hewitt Street, Manchester
Hewitt Street, Manchester

8 Hewitt Street is located just off Deansgate in the heart of Manchester city centre. It incorporates four floors of offices with a penthouse apartment on the top floor.

Following a succession of large city centre managing agents, the Landlords in 2016 decided they required the services of a boutique managing agent that was both pro-active and costeffective. Their requirements included both rent and service charge collection.

Casserly Property Management was subsequently appointed in June 2016 and following a complete review of the handover information found the following issues:

  • Expensive facilities management contracts in place for day to day communal services.
  • Overcomplicated planned preventive maintenance contracts were in place which were not cost effective as many of the contracts could have be combined.
  • A lack of clarity by both Landlord and Tenant about who was responsible for certain services and works.
  • There were a number of historic accounting issues unresolved at handover including old tenant debtors, creditors and VAT anomalies.

Pod–Trak Ltd, Eccles, Manchester

Pod-Trak Ltd
Pod-Trak Ltd

Pod-Trak is a privately owned company established in 2007 focusing on the installation of electrical systems to the rail infrastructure and civil engineering. Whilst their headquarters are in London they undertake work throughout the UK.

As Pod-Trak's work throughout the UK continued to grow they realised they needed a suitable base in the North of England. As a result in 2014 they secured a 5 year lease on a 10,707 modern industrial/office building in Manchester complete with a large secure yard area.

The building had been vacant for a while and therefore many of the buildings systems such as the fire alarm and security alarm were not operational. Whilst the landlord had agreed to re-reimburse Pod-Trak with the cost of insuring the building was fully statuary compliant Pod-Trak did not have the time or know how to investigate all the legislation and source quotes for the various items.

Nasmyth Business Park, Manchester

Nasmyth Business Park
Nasmyth Business Park

Nasmyth Business Park is large mixed use commercial estate located in Eccles, Manchester and is home to around 20 businesses. The site has a prestigious industrial heritage – it was originally known as the Bridgewater Foundry and was established in 1836 by James Nasmyth.

The business park’s Board of Directors had become frustrated with the existing large national Managing Agent who had let the business park spiral into a state of disrepair due to several years of neglect.

In early 2005 Casserly Property Management was invited to work with the park’s Board of Directors with the goal of transforming Nasmyth Business Park. After two major improvement projects the business park has now been totally rejuvenated helping to enhance the reputation of businesses located on the park as well as increasing the sale and rental values of the buildings.

St Joseph RC Church, Salford

St Joseph RC Church, Salford
St Joseph RC Church, Salford

St Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church is located in Ordsall, Salford. It is a Parish served from the Cathedral Church of St John the Evangelist in Salford. The current St Joseph’s was opened in 1902.

Health and safety legislation applies to all places of religious worship. However, for a priest with a busy schedule, an ever-increasing workload and limited health and safety knowledge
is often the case that not all the “required” activities are being carried out.

Coincide this with a reduction in the numbers of worshippers, resulting in decreasing budgets and the difficulty in ensuring compliance increase furthers. However, irrespective of the
aforementioned, parishes still have the legal responsibility to make sure their buildings are safe for their priest, contractors and worshippers alike.
