Engineering consultancy opens office at Pera Business Park – May 2016
Wormald Burrows Partnership Limited is a small civil engineering consultancy (25 staff) founded in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire 37 years ago. The main services the company delivers is planning input through to detailed engineering design on residential schemes (10 to 3500 houses), highways (local estate roads, town bypasses and major distributor roads), transportation and drainage schemes working with clients such as residential developers, local authorities and other government bodies.
Residential developers include Taylor Wimpey East Midlands in Leicester, Larkfleet Homes in Bourne, Morris Homes in Rugby and Davidsons Homes in Ibstock. Director, Hiranthi Cook, relocated with her family to Leicestershire 4 years ago and has grown Wormald Burrows business locally through working from an office at home. As the business became more established and secured key clients in the Midlands the business now needed suitable office premises and resource to satisfy the growing business needs short and longer term. Having reviewed suitable office premises within the Melton Mowbray area, it became clear that the Pera Business Park delivered all of the key requirements.
Hiranthi says ‘The all inclusive and flexible office space options and facilities at Pera Business Park made it our first choice and enabled our small business to establish itself locally and facilitate future growth without large overheads.’ Two existing staff members have relocated from Bedfordshire to Leicestershire and one new staff member has been recruited locally. The office opened on the 4th April 2016, the staff are enjoying their working environment, the business is doing well and clients are pleased that the company has a more established footing locally.
Pera Business Park Limited commented, “It is great to see a company relocate from outside of the local area to the Business Park. The office was designed specifically to suit Wormald Burrows immediate needs and provide room for future expansion. We work with each company individually to provide flexible rental arrangements and find that the fully serviced option works well with larger companies, allowing them to concentrate on the running of their business rather than the running of the office.”
Pera Business Park has a number of open plan offices suitable for large companies ranging from 1000 – 3000 square foot, as well as a 10000 square foot industrial warehouse with additional laboratories/workshops and offices.
