Property management company MetroPM has been appointed to look after a development of 150 apartments in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
MetroPM will manage the scheme at the Joseph Lucas building on Great Hampton Street. The scheme forms part of the converted former car parts factory.
The conversion was completed by developer Persimmon Homes in about 2001 to 2002.
Faraz Ahmed, associate director at MetroPM, said: “As part of the conversion from the original Lucas factory, the property has retained its own substation and all power for the building is supplied from there, which we will also be managing.
“This involves quite complex billing arrangements, but MetroPM is well-versed in dealing with such matters and are able to quickly adapt to what is needed.
“We held weekly meetings in advance with directors of the management company to assist with the handover of the management, which includes a large, secure car park.
“We will now be working closely with directors and residents to make sure these wonderful properties are well looked after in the years to come.”
A spokesperson for the New Hampton Lofts Management Company added: “The directors wished to engage with a company who understood their needs as a board and those of the customers.
“We are pleased to have appointed MetroPM and now look forward to working with them on a number of complex projects over the coming months.”
