C&W was appointed by Volvo Car (UK) Ltd to advise on the co-location of their UK Headquarters and Training Centre from Marlow and Daventry respectively into a single new facility in the Thames Valley. We conducted a thorough search of existing buildings and sites capable of development and occupation prior to the expiry of their existing leasehold premises.
Following a detailed assessment of the options available and financial analysis of the different procurement routes, a self contained building was selected fronting the A404 close to Maidenhead. C&W negotiated terms with the landlord and undertook detailed due diligence to assess the building’s ability to support and accommodate Volvo’s specific requirements.
The building was acquired by way of an Agreement for Lease on attractive terms with a detailed programme of works to be conducted by the landlord. The project was delivered within budget and the tight time constraints imposed by the Marlow lease event. The building now houses Volvo’s UK HQ and training facility within a single, prominent building in the heart of the Thames Valley.
