OnTheMarket founding agent Chestertons signs with ZPG

first_imgChestertons, one of the founding agents of property portal OnTheMarket (OTM) and one of London’s largest branch networks, has returned to Zoopla after a three-year hiatus.Its 32 branches have started listing on ZPG’s two websites with immediate effect as well as continuing to appear on Rightmove and OTM.A spokesperson from OnTheMarket said: “”Chestertons remains a valued and supportive estate agent customer of, and shareholder in, OnTheMarket and indeed has recently chosen to sign a new 5-year listing agreement with us.”Chestertons is one of a growing number of agents now listing on all three platforms after OTM lifted its ‘one other portal rule’ following its listing on the AIM stock market.“We’re excited to be returning to ZPG and having all of Chestertons properties listed on all four of the UK’s main property websites, which will benefit both our customers and our business,” says Allan Collins, CEO of Chestertons.The company, which founded OTM alongside several other high-profile agents including Knight Frank and Savills, is not the only agent to have signed up with or returned to ZPG recently.The portal says a flurry of branches have signed a listings agreement with it in recent weeks including eight from Martin & Co, six from Winkworth, five from Surrey agent Warren Powell Richards, five from Hampshire agent Charters and three from Ellis & Co.“We are very pleased to welcome Chestertons and many other partners back to the ZPG platform,” says ZPG MD of Property Mark Goddard (left).“They recognise the value we can bring to their business in terms of brand exposure and to their vendors and landlords by ensuring the maximum enquiries for their properties.”Chestertons was founded in 1805 and became one of London’s leading agents before going into receivership in 2005 and then being bought by the current shareholders who then began building it back up from eleven branches to its current 32, led by now former boss Robert Bartlett.   Martin & Co Mark Goddard OnTheMarket OTM Allan Collins Chestertons Ellis & Co ZPG March 27, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Kiel Canal Widening Contract Awarded to DEME

first_imgBelgian dredging group DEME has been awarded a contract as part of a joint venture for the widening of the Kiel Canal in Germany.Works started in January 2020 and are expected to be completed in late 2023, according to DEME.The Federal Waterways and Shipping Administration, represented by the WSA Kiel-Holtenau, commissioned the joint venture with the construction work to expand 4 km of the eastern section of the Kiel Canal. The contract has a total value of approximately EUR 99 million (USD 109.3 million) in which DEME’s subsidiaries Nordsee Nassbagger- und Tiefbau and Dredging International will handle the marine dredging works.The eastern part of the Kiel Canal will be expanded from 44 m to a future minimum bottom width of 70 m, enabling larger ships to cross safely in this area.As explained, the widening contributes significantly to increasing the efficiency of the waterway, which is important for international shipping.Extensive landscaping measures will be carried out as part of the expansion of the canal cross-section. In total, around 2 million cbm of soil are to be moved, around 58,000 square meters of revetments are to be installed and over 1 million cbm of soil are to be dredged and dumped.Last year, DEME also won another major deepening contract in Germany. Under the EUR 238 million deal, Nordsee Nassbagger- und Tiefbau and Dredging International were contracted to widen and deepen the 116 km long fairway between Cuxhaven and Hamburg to a level of -14.5 meters. Following the completion of the initial widenings of the Elbe, mega-ships with a combined width of up to 98 meters can now pass each other in a widened section of the Elbe known as the ‘passing box’.last_img read more
