Southern region to be run out of London

Henry Boot Developments has said it is closing its Bristol office as part of a restructuring which will see its southern business run out of London.

The firm’s managing director Ed Hutchinson said: “After lengthy consideration, we have taken the decision to rationalise our business operations in the south of the country and, as a result, will be closing the HBD office in Bristol.

“We now view the South-west and South-east regions as a single consolidated Southern region and will look to perform the majority of our Southern business activities from our London office.”
