BUSINESS DESCRIPTION
Multi-Disciplinary Building Consultancy
Public & Private Sector ISO9001/ISO14001/RIBA/RICS
Ref. GF052
Location : North West England
Asking Price : OIRO GBP 550,000
Established some 31 years ago, this highly successful, multi disciplinary practice covers all aspects of building consultancy serving commercial and public sectors throughout the UK, but predominantly for works in the North of England.
Ideally located very close to motorway network the business is within easy reach of the major conurbations of the North. It undertakes the full range of Building Consultancy services including:
Building Surveying
Architectural
Project Management
Facilities Management
Principal Designer services
The practice works across all sectors but is particularly well known within the Education, Ecclesiastical and Local Authority sectors. This includes new build, management and design as well as small scale works.
This business has clearly carved out a niche in the areas it operates within having built up an unparalleled in depth understanding of the constraints of working within these sectors. This, coupled with many years of experience, ensures this business can provide its Clients with a seamless solution to each and every project. It has extensive specialist knowledge of both tendering and working within these sectors and enjoys approved supplier status with many of its historical clients.
Over the many years of its operation, this business has established close working relationships with a number of clients. Its large and highly desirable Client base in the commercial, education, ecclesiastical and Local Authority sectors generate an on going stream of work. It has some 60 or so clients whom it regularly bids for and is typically working on some 30 to 40 live projects at any one time.
All Clients receive very close personal attention. Drawings, Report writing and document presentation is of the highest quality and backed up with the necessary accreditations.

Expansion Potential
The company managed some 80 + bids last year but the amount of tender/bid invitations it receives is growing year on year, and that is just in the sectors this consultancy chooses to operate in. There are a lot more opportunities to pursue should a new owner choose to do so as the business has the infrastructure and skill set already in place to accommodate such expansion and move to the next level.

Market / Competition / Non-Competition Agreements
The company does limited marketing which is testament to the level of repeat and referral business it enjoys year in year out. It does occasionally send out mailshots to its clients. The company also has a basic yet informative website which could certainly benefit from further development.
