Historic building consultant hopes to expand into commercial sector
Architect and historic building consultant Purcell Miller Tritton has appointed James Montgomery managing principal of its Norwich office in a bid to expand its operation in the East of England.
Montgomery will help develop a client base in the commercial sector which includes mixed use regeneration schemes, commercial office space and industrial units, as well as the publicly funded sectors, from community regeneration projects to police authority works.
Mark Goldspink, chief executive officer, said: “With a strong track record in the commercial sector, James brings a new dynamic to the practice that will add to its vast expertise across a variety of different sectors which already includes education, healthcare, residential and heritage.
“Although our first priority is to expand operations in Norwich we will be drawing on James’ skill set across the whole of the UK as we continue to move forward.”
Having worked throughout Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk this is a significant change of direction for PMT who have been traditionally regarded as operating primarily in the heritage field.
The firm is also looking for new design talent in the region that will build on its existing experience across both historic and conservation fields, as well as a number of new build projects, to develop its offering and provide clients with the level and quality of service rarely seen outside of London.
