Multi-disciplinary engineering consultancy Idom Merebrook has reported 100% growth in its housing division since 2010.
The firm’s housing turnover has grown from £1.35 million in 2010 to £2.57 million last year.
The company has said that the growth is “not from winning contracts with new clients, but from working more closely and doing more for their existing housing client base,” and “an increasing number of regeneration projects to help redevelop brownfield sites for housing”.
Nigel Huish, managing director at Idom Merebrook, commented, “The statistics show two things; firstly as a consultancy we are comfortably in line with the steady growth being experienced by the industry as a whole.
“Additionally, while we are steadily expanding our client portfolio, our main area of growth has come through providing a wider range of services to our existing and longer standing clients on bigger projects.
“Our good growth performance has been enhanced by greater accessibility to more challenging brownfield sites identified for residential development. Our expertise in the remediation and the restoration of brownfield sites has become increasing sought after, as developers constantly require more innovative solutions to regenerate derelict sites and contaminated land.”
