Morgan Tucker says its growth strategy has taken a leap forward with the opening of a London office. The new base close to Westminster Abbey has been opened on the back of "significant" contract wins with clients in the south.
The firm, which has a team of more than 30 people, now has its sights set on Manchester for a third office location following major project wins in the north west.
The company has also made a series of strategic high-profile appointments – including Tim Doubell as an associate, to head up the company's structural engineering division.
Managing director Matthew Tucker says that a London office was needed in order to service an increasing number of London-based clients.
He said: "We are working with One Housing Group, helping them to deliver a number of large-scale housing developments in the south east.
"We have also recently started working for an organisation called West Register which is the property development arm of the Royal Bank of Scotland.
"Other organisations we are working with, and hence the reason for the new office, include Network Rail, Ashley House Plc, and McArdle Group.
"Some of our existing larger established clients such as DB Schenker and Aggregate Industries are increasing their London presence and we want to make sure we are continuing to grow with them too."
As well as setting up new sites to manage increased workload, Mr Tucker says the business has also made a significant investment in the way it operates.
The company has invested in Building Information Modelling (BIM), the process of generating and managing building data during its lifecycle.
"BIM will completely change the way our industry operates," said Mr Tucker.
"The Government has said all publicly-procured construction projects will be designed and managed by BIM principles.
"This is a major investment and will really benefit Morgan Tucker and its clients.
"All in all, we are undergoing a period of radical growth and innovation.
"The past two years have been difficult for the property industry, we all know that, but Morgan Tucker is seeing tremendous change."
