John Rowan and Partners, an award-winning, multi-disciplinary construction and property consultancy, has been acquired by Bellrock Property & Facilities Management (“Bellrock”).
Established in 1982, John Rowan and Partners have built an impressive track record, working in both the public and private sectors supporting major regeneration projects, such as the Olympic Legacy Project, East Village, and St Pancras station. The partners have developed a strong ethos and culture based around their staff and client relationships, and when Avondale was appointed as lead advisor on the business sale, it was important that their purchaser understood the importance of their people and the business’ key strengths. This is Bellrock’s first acquisition under new investors Sun European LLP and the addition will strengthen their technology-driven property services offering and expand their in-house capabilities.
“We are excited to become part of the Bellrock Group – it will enable us to do more of what we do best, in more sectors and regions across the UK. From the outset the synergy and fit with Bellrock felt right and Avondale were a great support, helping to lead the transaction through to a successful completion.”
Gurpal Virdee – Managing Director, John Rowan and Partners
“We are delighted to welcome John Rowan and Partners to Bellrock Group. This acquisition complements our drive to accelerate our growth while adding to our expertise and will provide further enhancements to our service offering within our Technical & Real Estate division. This will enable us to offer more comprehensive services to our combined customers.”
