London building consultancy expands nationwide with new Leeds office

A London building consultancy has announced that it is opening a new office in Yorkshire as it expands across the UK.

Paragon has opened a new office in Leeds city centre as it implements its “targeted” UK expansion strategy.

The new office is located at Avenue HQ on East Parade and is headed up by director and shareholder, Robert Simpson, who has been with the consultancy for six years.

Paragon has said that it will be recruiting for a range of building surveying, project management and cost management positions as the Leeds office expands.

The office launch comes in direct response to growing client demand and new opportunities for Paragon throughout Yorkshire. The consultancy’s clients operating in the region include Legal & General, Select Group, APAM, Landsec, Northwood and Kinrise.

Robert Simpson commented: “Our work within Yorkshire has continued to expand both in terms of volume and remit so it makes perfect sense for us to open an office in Leeds.

“We have an established reputation for delivering commercially-focused advice in a way that’s straightforward and without waffle, so we will continue to grow our business in Yorkshire upon those firm foundations.

“Having an office in Leeds means we can provide our existing clients in the region with even greater levels of service delivery whilst also enabling us to identify and secure additional commercial opportunities.

“As a business we have established a number of new in-house services in recent years, most notably the expansion of our energy and sustainability offering, which we will look to develop alongside our clients within the local area.

“As someone who lives in Leeds, it is great to open an office in my home city and further grow Paragon’s connections with funders, developers and intermediaries operating in Yorkshire and beyond.”
