Engineering consultancy cements Midlands presence with new base
Engineering consultancy JPG Group has expanded its geographical operation with a new Midlands base.
The Leeds-headquartered practice has secured space within the Cornwall Buildings in Birmingham city centre, in a bid to support growth in the Midlands and South,
Established in 1988, JPG provides civil and structural engineering consultancy services for clients throughout the UK. It currently employs 45 people at its Leeds headquarters and new team members will join the Midlands office under the leadership of board director, David Allwood.
Allwood said: “We are delighted to cement our presence in the Midlands with a permanent office right in the heart of Birmingham city centre. We continue to have a strong pipeline of projects in the region across a range of development sectors.
“We see fantastic opportunities in the Midlands, particularly in the feasibility support on strategic sites identified for much needed new residential conurbations as highlighted in the Birmingham Development Plan.
“Whilst we have an established project portfolio across the whole of the UK, having a more permanent base in the Midlands will allow us to expand our regional project pipeline with a team that can also more readily deliver projects in the South. This strategic move forms an important milestone in our growth plans.”
Recently completed projects include St Hilary’s Retail Park, in Basildon, Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth and 640,000 sq ft of strategic logistics development at Integra 61, in County Durham.
