Eddisons maintains ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 certifications

We’re happy to announce our latest achievement of retaining our ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 certifications.

These qualifications further support our mission to ensure the highest levels of quality and compliance in commercial property.

The standard ISO 9001:2015 certification is awarded to businesses who can prove that they are a trustworthy organisation that applies continuous improvement to its habits, practices, and strategies.

Furthermore, ISO 14001:2015 is a measurement of the dedication that a company has to a sustainable future, showing that their actions and approaches are in line with creating a more environmentally conscious world.

Hand in hand, these ISO certifications show that Eddisons is a leading force in not only improving the quality of our business practices but also the sustainability of those practices too.


Director Charlotte Peel, who led Eddisons through this lengthy and complex process explains: “it’s not easy to gain the certification, but it is important to show our clients, peers, and staff what we stand for. Furthermore, it’s even more important to retain it each assessment period comes along.

“Keeping ourselves compliant and holding ourselves accountable helps us to provide the best quality service for our clients, which is paramount to us at Eddisons.”

The process includes understanding operational risk, proving that we know how to mitigate incidents that can occur, and understanding the process of maintaining consistency and compliance during all eventualities of business.

Eddisons is a company that has seen many different trends and innovations but one thing we have – and will always have – is a respect for quality and our future.

Javid Patel, head of public sector 

Since gaining approved supplier status on the Government’s Crown Commercial Service (CCS) estate management services framework in 2021 and on the ESPO public sector professional buying organisation in 2022, the firm’s public sector team has rapidly grown the number of councils and other public bodies in its client portfolio.

The City of Lincoln Council, Portsmouth City Council, Rushmoor Borough Council in Hampshire and the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA), the body which regulates and administers all MPs’ business costs and pay, have become the latest organisations to appoint Eddisons’ public sector advisory services.

In Lincoln, Eddisons will advise the city council on the Lincoln Western Growth Corridor, providing strategic development consultancy services for 3,200 new homes, a neighbourhood centre, a business park and transport infrastructure to alleviate congestion.

The firm is providing strategic development consultancy and other input for Portsmouth City Council on its flagship City Centre North master plan. Proposals include 2,300 new homes, public green space and space for new community facilities, retail, hospitality and leisure uses, as well as walking and cycling routes.

Eddisons’ property management team has also been appointed by Rushmoor Borough Council to manage the 375,000 sq ft Kingsmead and the Meads shopping centres in Farnborough on a three-year contract. The contract from IPSA will also see Eddisons provide lease advisory services for MPs’ constituency offices across the UK.

Javid Patel, Eddisons’ head of our public sector strategic advisory team, said: “We are really excited to have added these latest clients to our public sector portfolio. Our approach is always to build collaborative relationships and help bring innovation, including using AI technologies, to aid the quality and speedier delivery of our services.”

He added: “Local authorities and other public sector bodies are increasingly looking to Eddisons for new ideas and direction on capital projects and masterplans and we are building a solid reputation for delivering expertise in areas such as residential, commercial portfolios and town centre regeneration.

“We look forward to growing our market share in the public sector still further as part of our wider strategic business plan.”

The firm, whose Eastern regional offices are in Peterborough, Huntingdon, Cambridge & Bury St Edmunds, occupies the top slot in the East of England, having transacted 1,333,491 sq ft of commercial space across 282 deals.

And, within the regional rankings, it was also judged as the most active in Cambridgeshire too, having completed over 232 individual transactions in 2023.

Featuring in the individual dealmakers listings for Cambridgeshire, Eddisons agents occupy six out of the top ten slots – with Julian Welch ranked as the most active agent in the county and colleagues, Gavin Hynes & Matthew Hunt in the second and third slots.

The annual EG Radius competition is open to all commercial agents, with the Eastern region covering property transactions in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Norfolk and is assessed on the volume of deals done for lettings and sales across all commercial property sectors.

Commenting on the firm’s achievement in the competition, Stephen Hawkins, Regional Managing Partner, Eddisons, said, “The fact that we occupy the top slot once again is a great achievement in what, across twelve months, was a tricky market.

“To have so many of our agents in the highest rankings as dealmakers is a real fillip to the firm, as well as a testament to the individuals themselves.

Record take up of warehouses at Eagle Business Park

Eagle Business Park

Record take up of warehouses at Eagle

The final phase of development at Eagle Business Park continues to break records.

Planning consent was granted by Huntingdon District Council in the summer for four new estatesof Condor, Firecrest, Razorbill and Ravens Courts which comprise the final phase at Eagle Business Park and in total 37 units. Units ranging from 900 to 2,895 sq ft and all are available for sale or to let.

Developer Barnack Estates (UK) Ltd are due to commence construction on site at the end of September.

Richard Jones from sole agents Eddisons commenced marketing the estates in late May 2022 and over 20 units have been reserved.

Richard Jones commented ‘ In a normal market place we might sell or let a hand full of units a month or so before practical completion, but to have reserved so many units without breaking ground is incredible.’

Alwalton Hill new builds has provided all the takeup to the larger logistics operators, the Peterborough land market has provided little new space to the SME market where second hand stock levels are at an all time low.

Some units have sold to investors but by far the majority are being reserved by owner occupiers, taking advance of cheap money and the opportunity to move away from renting.

Take up also continues to show approximately 30% of occupiers coming from further afield which is great for the growth of the City moving forward.

For more details on the final phase of units available at Eagle Business Park please contact the sole agent Richard Jones from Eddisons on 01733 5564397 or email [email protected].
