ASH Chartered Surveyors was established in 1989 and is one of the best-known practices working throughout Gloucestershire from two offices in Gloucester and Cheltenham. The firm offer a range of services including property management, lease consultancy and agency and is run by its three partners, Bruce Fenley, Alastair Mylechreest and Simon McKeag.

The COVID-19 pandemic has presented challenges for many businesses, across a range of sectors, and the property industry has been no exception.

ASH faced challenges of its own over the last 2 years, however, as we start 2022, the firm has achieved continued growth of both its team, and turnover and is proud to still be offering a personal service and helping clients by using the teams in-depth knowledge of the Gloucestershire property market.

Simon McKeag joined ASH as a Graduate Surveyor in 2000, becoming a Partner in 2009 and heads up the Agency Department, primarily dealing with the acquisition and disposal of commercial properties across the County. Simon said, “The ASH team pulled together to support clients and customers in uncertain times, and this was key to helping the firm navigate the pandemic”

“We have been in a fortunate position to recruit additional staff to help maintain our levels of service and the new members have slipped seamlessly into our team. Another contributing factor to the strong performance has been the breadth of services we offer as workloads have varied at different points.”

Looking ahead this year there will undoubtedly be further challenges to overcome in the commercial property market, due to a shortage of industrial/warehouse space and commercial land in the county and ongoing difficulties facing the retail market with the growth of online shopping. The shift to remote working is likely to result in office occupiers reviewing space requirements.

Gloucestershire has proven it is resilient to adversity in the past and there is an appetite for business, with a number of significant developments progressing in the county, continuing to make it an attractive place to live and work.

ASH are looking forward to 2022 and maintaining their position as one of the key commercial surveying practices in the county and seeking new opportunities to grow.

For help with any of your commercial letting, aquisition or property management needs please contact Simon McKeag.
