Hamptons buys property firm specialising in affordable housing

Countrywide firm Hamptons International has acquired a consultancy that specialises in affordable housing and regeneration.

The purchase of ikon, based in London, is for an undisclosed sum.

Hamptons said that the acquisition forms part of Hamptons International’s strategic ambition to grow and strengthen its professional services offering, particularly in the public and affordable housing sectors.

Ikon’s client list includes housing associations and local councils, and major projects include Greenwich Peninsula and residential development in the Olympic Park.

Alyn North, chief finance and operating officer at Hamptons International and Countrywide, said: “We are hugely excited to be making such a key strategic acquisition and particularly one which is so complementary to our current development services offering.

“We have been working with the team at ikon for a number of years with blue chip clients across all sectors of the property industry and this is a natural extension of what to date has been a tremendously successful association.”
