Howard Group’s Industrial Estate situated in New Bermondsey, London, has been shortlisted for ‘Best Overall Scheme – Multi Let Industrial Estate’ in the national IAS (Industrial Agents Society) awards.

Located in one of London’s most dynamic growth areas, Elizabeth Industrial Estate provides some of the highest quality industrial premises in the area. Howard Group acquired the Estate in 2000 and added to its offering by acquiring the adjacent Juno Way Industrial Estate in 2004. These sites have been transformed through active asset management and development, creating exceptional new buildings and upgrading the rest of the estate for existing occupiers.

This is the second consecutive year Howard Group has been recognised by the IAS, having been shortlisted for ‘Deal of the Year’ in 2015 for the 58,000 sq ft ‘Tea Shed’ building, pre-let to DHL International. This is an exceptional achievement for a company of its scale as the awards set industry standards and celebrate the best developments, deals and investments within the industrial and distribution sectors in the UK.

Nicholas Bewes, chief executive at Howard Group, said: “It is one thing to be recognised for doing great deals, but reputations are formed by delivering great buildings too, so we are proud to be shortlisted in this category. The Elizabeth and Juno estates were tired and run-down environments when we acquired them and they are now home to some of the best and biggest industrial occupiers in the UK. We are very proud that this has been acknowledged by the very best in the industry.”

The IAS Awards will take place on 29 September at the London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square.
