The Bury-based civil and structural engineering company is due to open a Manchester office in the coming months, and has expanded its senior team with the appointment of Andrea Manenti as senior structural engineer.
Booth King Partnership currently operates from an office in Ramsbottom, with plans to launch an Edinburgh branch in April. The company is currently in talks with Bruntwood to find a site for an office for around six members of staff in Manchester city centre.
Projects include Manchester University's Business School, the Manchester Victoria Train Station roof, the Maggies Centre at Royal Oldham Hospital, and the Bolton One health, sports and research centre.
As part of its growth plans, Booth King has welcomed back Manenti, who originally worked at Booth King until 2011 before moving to Africa. He has since been working in Uganda for FBW Uganda delivering projects which include educational facilities in rural areas.
Manenti will be working with Booth King's team on projects including the Maggie's Centre at Royal Oldham Hospital and the extension of the Radisson Edwardian hotel in Manchester.
