Warrington healthcare property investor Assura has added a new chartered surveyor to its specialist team, to support its growing portfolio of GP surgery and primary care buildings.
Maria Oakman joins the FTSE 250 company, based in the former Greenalls Brewery, following surveying roles with Lee Baron, Urban Vision Partnership and Rochdale Council.
Assura, which owns 422 properties with a total annualised rent roll of £76.9m, has a £146m pipeline of primary care property acquisitions and developments around the country.
Property director, Andrew Darke, said: “Maria joins us at a particularly exciting time, with our first zero-carbon GP surgery building design opening this summer in Manchester and a long list of further projects and partnerships underway to help GPs all over the country create more space, refurbish existing premises or to secure the new buildings they so desperately need.
“Our relationships with our tenant GPs are built on the specialist skills and experience of our portfolio team, so we’re delighted to welcome Maria to strengthen those even further.”
