The new office will be led by Nick Surman, regional director, as the new head of business under the directorship of Richard Ernest of Faithful+Gould’s Reading office, which has been established for 10 years.
Staff from Faithful+Gould’s parent company, Atkins, will transfer to the new Oxford office and represent a combined team offering a full range of quantity surveying and project management services to clients across the south central region and Thames Valley.
The Oxford office will provide expertise in service delivery across all aspects of the property sector including defence, education, leisure, government offices and healthcare. This will compliment the skill set offered by the Reading office, which has grown significantly in recent years and is involved with high profile projects in the retail, finance and government sectors, as well as the waste industry.
Richard Ernest, director responsible for the new office, said: "In light of the tremendous growth and development of Faithful+Gould over the last couple of years, we feel it is important for us to be able to provide an improved service offering to our key clients in the area. We're very excited about the move into Oxford which will see us strengthen our business in the Thames Valley and provide our clients with a wider set of services and expertise."
Nick Surman, regional director and head of business for the new office, comments: "This is an exciting opportunity to develop a business committed to considerable growth over the next two years by enhancing our expertise and service provision with the Faithful+Gould brand promise of constructive expertise. Our clients have always recognised our professionalism and our positive and collaborative approach and we are now able to offer the support of one of the world's largest and most prestigious consultancies."
