Scottish engineering firm launches London office due to "consistently high" demand
A Scottish engineering consultancy has announced that it is launching a new London office as part of its “significant” expansion into the South of England.
XBuro, a mechanical and electrical engineering consultancy, has said that the London office is being created to meet “increasing demand” during the coronavirus lockdown.
The company has also said that it is planning a recruitment drive as it expands.
Since March, XBuro has taken on 55 contracts, including 750,000 sq ft of healthcare projects - a 50 per cent increase on 2019.
Michael Gribben, director and co-founder of XBuro, commented: “At the beginning of the first lockdown, a lot of projects were delayed, so there was some uncertainty.
“However, very quickly we began to receive a huge influx of enquiries, particularly in the healthcare sector.
“This demand has remained consistently high since then. We were able to deliver important projects quickly, while never sacrificing quality.
“We have been proud to have been able to play a small part in a much larger effort by helping to deliver vital public health projects during our nation’s time of need.
“During this period, we have also delivered numerous private sector projects and we’re also delighted to now be recognised as a trusted partner of developers and fund managers across the UK.
“Our pitch success rate is rising all the time as our reputation grows.
“With an increased number of projects and our reputation growing south of the border, adding experience to our team and securing a London office was the next logical step.
“We look forward to delivering more projects successfully across the UK, which will further establish ourselves as a high-quality provider in the industry as we continue to grow.”
