June 21, 2024

Hollis, one of the UK’s largest real estate consultancies, took to the water iin Bath to celebrate its 30-year anniversary in the South West.

The firm, which has grown its Bristol office in recent years and now employs 27 staff in the region, staged a party for clients, industry contacts and staff from across the South West on the River Avon. 

The all-day event, which hosted 14 Hollis clients, included a kayaking session staged with Bath Canoe Club, pictured.

The independent commercial building consultancy rebranded from its original name of Malcolm Hollis in 2019 and relocated its Bristol base from Queen Square to Berkeley Square in 2021.

In the same year it was sold to an employee ownership trust, making it one of the UKs largest businesses to be owned by its staff.

It has also grown its client base across the South West, with its regional team now servicing LGIM, M&G, AEW, University of Bristol, Schroders and The Crown Estate among many others over the past five years. 

The South West office specialises in ESG (environmental, social and governance) consultancy, project management, technical due diligence, development monitoring and dilapidations, alongside a suite of wider integrated technical services, including MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) engineering, measured surveys and neighbourly matters advice.

During its three decades in the South West the firm has contributed to a number of large scale and significant projects across the region.

Hollis South West managing director Will Pasco said: “It was fantastic to celebrate 30 years of successful business in the South West and to invite clients and staff to an enjoyable afternoon of kayaking.

“Bristol and the South West continue to attract investment from the UK and overseas and the region has grown significantly over the last decade.

“We look forward to continuing to help shape the future of this exceptional part of the country.”

Hollis’s Bristol office is one of 22 across the UK and Europe.
