Consulting engineers practice Brentwood has announced an expansion with new offices in Leeds City Centre. It has acquired 1,500 sq ft of creative workspace in the newly refurbished, historic Grade I-listed Leeming Building on Vicar Lane.
Whilst it retains its headquarters in Harrogate, Brentwood is embarking on a planned growth strategy which has already seen new office bases in Manchester and Birmingham during 2018.
Since a senior management buyout took place in 2013 the Brentwood Partnership has changed its status to become a Limited Company to help structure for growth. It was also selected for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses UK Programme which identifies and gives support to small companies with a strong business model and high growth potential.
Brentwood has since set out an ambitious three-year strategy to achieve 50% annual growth in both team members and turnover. It is currently on target to achieve an 80% increase in just one year as it works towards year end in March 2019.
Mark Johnson, Director said, “We are delighted to announce our expansion into Leeds City Centre. With a presence now in the three core business cities outside of London we can provide more physical connectivity with our local markets and indeed nationally. With this physical growth we are also expanding our team and capabilities having recently announced new principal specialists in lighting and building physics.
“Mechanical, electrical and public health design services are at the heart of buildings, providing sustainable, controllable and appropriate environments. As a single disciplinary consulting practice, we are gearing the business to be better placed for market growth and our longer-term business plan is to increase our UK and international presence.”
