Urban Vision has created a geo-technical and geo-environmental team by recruiting on secondment the 40-strong Altrincham office of Capita Symonds.
Capita Symonds is already a joint venture partner in Urban Vision, along with Salford City Council and Morrison Highways Maintenance.
The new team will be based at the existing Urban Vision base in Emerson House, Eccles.
Urban Vision has 40 local authority clients and an 'extensive list' in the private sector offering a range of property development and regeneration services.
Marcus Asquith, operations director at Urban Vision, said: "Adding the wealth of experience found in the Capita Symonds Altrincham office to Urban Vision can only help to strengthen and build upon the services we are able to provide."
The Capita Symonds staff transferred this week.
