The Manchester-based team of building services engineer, Max Fordham has moved into larger premises within Carvers' Warehouse in Piccadilly Basin.
The firm opened a Manchester office with one member of staff, Matt Dickinson, senior partner, in 2012 and has grown to nine today. The latest recruits were graduate engineers Alasdair Reagan and Deborah Farrugia. Max Fordham now occupies a 2,000 sq ft office at Town Centre Securities' building in Dale Street.
Dickinson said he expected the office to grow to about 20 people over the next three to four years. The practice this week completed on the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall refurbishment, and is working on Chetham's School of Music, Manchester and a Code 6 (Code for Sustainable Homes) Country House in Preston. The firm was recently appointed to the new Salvation Army development at Strawberry Fields in Liverpool.
Dickinson added: "Being able to establish a base in this amazing city is exciting. The overwhelming enthusiasm from the architectural community in Manchester has been really encouraging, and indicates to me that the future is rosy."
