Below are few example of the projects Richard Ashworth has been involved with:
In the early 1990s an American Company called Costco declared their intention to open stores in the United Kingdom. This was a concept called a Warehouse Club which had a strict membership requirement for people who wanted to shop there. However, the strict membership was open to interpretation and allowed not just limited companies but individuals to be members providing they met certain criteria.
In 1979 Richard was valuing the industrial group known as Metal Closures and as a result of routine enquiries he ascertained that a property owned by this company at London Colney was going to be affected by a new orbital motorway later to be known as the M25.
In 1979 Chris Morton worked as a junior for Richard Ashworth whilst he was a Partner in the industrial department of Hillier Parker May & Rowden. Chris moved on to become a partner at Fuller Peiser following time at J Trevor. He eventually ended up as Property Controller at FKI Plc.
As the retained agent for Decathlon, Richard acquired two units at Angel Way previously occupied by Tempo and Pets at Home totalling approximately 25,000 sq ft.
