New surveying consultancy comes to Newcastle
Newcastle has been chosen as the new Northern base for a Rutland-based engineering and surveying consultancy.
Smithers Purslow decided to open the office as part of the company’s long-term strategy, and chose the city due to its vibrant engineering and architectural history.
The location is also a central point between the company’s clients, many of whom are based in Yorkshire, Scotland and the North West.
Chris Scott, a chartered building surveyor, who is originally from the North East, will head the new office in Newcastle. He will be working alongside a graduate building surveyor and a structural engineer, but has plans to expand the business over the next three years.
Commenting on the opening of the Newcastle office he said: “Although Smithers Purslow’s work is national, having a northern presence is important for our longer term strategy.
“Our goal is to provide consistently high quality, customer-focused and commercially viable design – on time and within budget. This relies on the quality of our people, so as a firm, we place a great deal of importance on being the best on our field.”
Smithers Purslow specialises in multi-disciplinary services to the building, construction and insurance markets and currently work with a range of public and private sector clients.
