Garden centre property consultancy Hammond Phillips to be sold off by Edward Symmons

By Matthew Appleby Monday, 15 February 2010

Garden centre property consultancy Hammond Phillips is set to enter administration, Estates Gazette has reported.

Hammond Phillips was founded 35 years ago operating retail property services, including investment, agency, development and professional services as well as management and a specialist garden centre department.

The agent's management business has merged with property consultancy James Andrew. It will trade as James Andrew Hammond Phillips.

Property consultants Edward Symmons has been appointed to market Hammond Phillips' remaining business, comprising primarily the retail agency, investment and development divisions.

Hammond Phillips directors Mike Gilbert, David Gilbert and Allen Evans left the company last October to form their own practice selling garden centres, Gilbert Evans. Andrew Hamilton subsequently joined them from Hammond Phillips, leaving no garden centre expertise at the London company.

Quinton Edwards became the most established garden centre property consultancy in the marketplace.

Hammond Phillips was founded 35 years ago operating retail property services, including investment, agency, development and professional services as well as management and a specialist garden centre department.

Hammond Phillips is the only approved supplier of garden centre property advice to the HTA and worked with Barton Grange, Blooms of Bressingham, Blue Diamond, Dobbies, Garden Park Investments and other garden centres.

Hammond Phillips managing director Barry Hammond said: "I've had 35 very good years. I've worked with some brilliant people and great clients. I'm now looking forward to the freedom of doing what I do best in the next 35 years."
