Adept Civil and Structural Consulting Engineers is significantly expanding its Manchester operation after relocating to new city centre offices on St James Square, in a move that will create several new jobs this year.
The new office covers 1,200 sq ft on the fourth floor of Number 7 St James Square, which sits between John Dalton Street and South King Street. Adept, which is headquartered in Leeds, was previously based at Sevendale House, in the city’s Stevenson Square conservation area.
Since expanding into Manchester five years ago, the company has won numerous contracts throughout the North West, spanning all sectors including rail, education, industrial and residential projects. Adept now employs a team of six in Manchester.
Neil Brown, a director at Adept, who heads up the company’s Manchester office, said: “In recent years, Adept has provided structural and civil engineering services for a vast range of projects in the region.
“These range from large scale industrial units through to several school extensions and new homes developments, meaning we’ve quickly made our mark across the North West. Our team has grown in line with this, to the point where we had outgrown our previous premises, and we’re looking forward to recruiting several new people in the coming months to meet the demand of future contracts.
“7 St James Square is a newly refurbished building that offers high quality office accommodation, with great communal facilities, right in the heart of Manchester city centre, meaning it’s highly accessible for our team and clients.
“It also offers the opportunity for us to expand further, making it the ideal base as we embark on our next phase of growth and continue building on our presence and reputation in the North West.”
Adept provides a full range of civil and structural engineering solutions. These include surveys and reports, feasibility advice for new schemes, BIM services, geo-environmental studies, site investigations, conceptual and detailed drawings, flood-risk and drainage assessments and highway design.
