Firm to develop ng² park –
- Nottingham Evening Post


Miller Birch is set to bring forward another 40,000 sq ft of speculative space at the ng² office park in Nottingham. The development – a joint venture between Miller Group and Birch – is already committed to 70,000 sq ft of speculative space at the Queen’s Drive site, with most of the first phase under offer.

Miller says the site has been a big success for the group, with the investment interest in the building occupied by Geldards and Coutts already sold on.

Halifax Bank of Scotland recently announced it would be moving part of its home insurance operation to a 30,000 sq ft building at ng², with building having just started.

Miller’s announcement that it is jointly building more speculative space at the park comes in the wake of annual financial results showing the group achieved big increases in turnover and profits last year.

Turnover, including revenue from joint ventures, rose from £752m in 2004 to £893m last year.

Pre-tax profits were up 40% from £54.4m to £76m. Excluding exceptional gains, continuing profit before tax rose 20% to £65m.
Group chief executive Keith Miller said the 2005 results had been achieved against a background of below-trend growth in the economy and rising oil prices, which had pushed up inflation.

He said: “We enter 2006 with the experience of growing our housing business successfully through five acquisitions in as many years and the purchase of several property portfolios which have propelled our property business to new levels.

“Our construction business has also maintained a steady growth rate with improved repeat business while generating industry-leading returns.

“We have an enviable track record of strong performance from all three businesses which we are confident of building on in the years ahead.”
