The second tranche, whereby PFP will assume 100% ownership of Allenbuild, will occur after ten outstanding contracts reach practical completion, which is expected to be in about 12 months’ time.

“We are delighted to be working with Renew again and this is our third transaction in six months for them. This highlights the upsurge in deal activity across the market that we have seen in general this year.”
