Property and cost consultancy Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) has opened a new office in West Cumbria, to focus on growth in the region’s nuclear sector.

Commenting on the move, Deryck Barton, managing partner at RLB, said: “This is our latest expansion to ensure that we can continue delivering high quality services to our clients in the energy, nuclear and infrastructure sector.

“The region is becoming one of the fastest growing economies in the UK which is transforming the area. For us, it’s not just about transferring staff and opening a new office.
