Pure Block Management expands team following new client wins

Hull-based property specialist Pure Block Management has expanded its team to support its continued growth.

The firm, which manages over 100 apartment blocks and residential complexes across the region, has appointed property professional Lizzie Gibson to its team of block managers following recent new client wins.

Lizzie has a wealth of industry experience gained at Doncaster-based property firm G2M Group.

In her role as block manager she will be responsible for ensuring the developments Pure Block Management looks after are maintained to a high standard and comply with all the necessary regulations.

Her appointment comes on the back of two recent client wins by the firm.

Earlier this month it was appointed by local home builder Scruton to provide drainage management services to part of its Park Lane development in Cottingham.

The development of 39 new homes and apartments includes a mix of rental and privately-owned properties, as well as affordable and shared equity homes, situated in a tranquil area of the popular village.

In July Pure Block Management took over the management of Waddington Court, a six-apartment complex on Hull’s Cottingham Road. It was appointed by the freeholders of the property to oversee day-to-day maintenance of communal areas, as well as financial and legal administration and compliance.

Other residential developments in Pure Block Management’s portfolio include the Queen’s Court BBC building in Hull city centre, luxurious Raywell House in East Yorkshire and Broadway House, on Hornsea’s seafront.

Pure Block Management director Liam Parker said: “We’re delighted to welcome Lizzie to the team as we continue to win new business.

“Our work for Scruton on its Park Lane development and our management of Waddington Court are the latest in a series of new contracts in recent months that demonstrate the breadth of our experience and property management offering.

“In the case of the Park Lane development, we are providing a single, quite specialised maintenance service, while for Waddington Court we’re taking care of all aspects of management of the property. Having assisted the leaseholders in buying their freehold, they chose to switch to us from their previous management company based on our responsive service and specialist knowledge.

“We’re looking forward to adding more properties across the region to our portfolio in the months ahead.”

Lizzie said: “The team at Pure Block Management has a great reputation in the local property industry for excellent service, which is what attracted me to the role.  

“I’m excited to be joining the company at a time when it’s investing in growth, and looking forward to playing a part in its future success.”

Part of Yorkshire-based property firm Garness Group, Pure Block Management manages more than 2,000 residential units across more than 120 complexes of apartments and houses in the region.
