Manchester-based building design company, BCM, have rebranded as Patrick Parsons, following the acquisition of the company last year.
BCM, which specialises in sustainability and low cost, low carbon building solutions, will officially trade as Patrick Parsons from 28 March 2018. The award-winning firm has built up a strong client portfolio in both the public and private sectors and has worked across a wide range of education and health projects.
In addition to its Newcastle headquarters, Patrick Parsons has a further seven UK-based and two international offices and provides design services to blue-chip clients in the residential, commercial, leisure, industrial and infrastructure sectors. Some of the firm’s most notable projects include consulting on restoration works at Durham Cathedral and developing the world’s first modular flat packed white water course in Glasgow.
Since joining Patrick Parsons, BCM has been able to offer clients additional services including Structural, Civil, and Geoenvironmental Engineering as well as Planning Support, Building Consultancy, Asbestos Management, and Traffic and Transportation.
Brian Morris, founder of BCM, commented: “I am delighted that the merge of BCM and Patrick Parsons is now complete. United by a common business culture, our alliance with Patrick Parsons has enabled us to enhance our offer to clients as well as facilitating growth and extending our coverage nationally and internationally.”
Peter Stienlet, managing director of Patrick Parsons, commented: “The rebrand marks the celebration of a very successful partnership with BCM and an exciting step in our plans for growth in the North West. Our focus is to maintain the quality and delivery of BCM’s service, which is the foundation for the firm’s excellent reputation in the industry.”
The announcement follows hot on the heels of the recent rebranding of Patrick Parsons’ Twickenham office, as well as several further acquisitions including that of Birmingham-based infrastructure engineering specialist THDA in 2017.
