It is with great pleasure and pride that we can announce that despite being nominated in an extremely tough category Rushton Hickman have recently won the Deal of the Year for 2023 at the highly coveted East Midlands Business Link Brick Awards.

The award was given for the letting of Unit 4 Quintus at Branston Locks, Burton to Werner UK Sales & Distribution Limited.  The property was a brand new design and build logistics warehouse and offices extending to 171,550sq ft.

Director, Graham Bancroft, who dealt with the letting for Rushton Hickman said “We are thrilled to have won this prestigious award against such outstanding competition. The deal to Werner had many challenges as the original discussions and agreement happened during the time of the pandemic with escalating build costs.  However, all parties commitment and determination to get an agreement in place was exceptional and the building that our client, Nurton Developments, produced for Werner was fantastic so credit goes to all parties. I am hugely proud of the whole Rushton Hickman team for winning this award.”

“The letting produced huge job creation for the town as Werner more than doubled the amount of space they had in their previous unit.  The building then acted as a catalyst for the rest of the Quintus development with three other units having since been speculatively built and let by ourselves and our joint agents with further space available on the development for D&B opportunities.”
