WARWICKSHIRE, UK, Aug. 20, 2007 -- Morgan Sindall, the construction and regeneration group, has launched an integrated professional design and project management business Morgan Professional Services (MPS) following its acquisition of AMEC plc's national construction, civil engineering and design business, Design & Project Services (DPS) last month (July).
MPS will incorporate the design and engineering capability of the former DPS business and will provide professional design, construction management and project management services.
Headquartered in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, MPS will be supported by four UK regional offices in London, Glasgow, Warrington (Birchwood) and Swynnerton with international offices in Basel, Lyon and Shanghai. The business will be headed up by managing director, Martin Broome, DPS' former commercial director. Martin brings considerable experience to the role having held a number of senior positions in the construction industry in both the UK and abroad. He has valuable knowledge of Morgan Sindall's business from his previous role as commercial director for Morgan Est. He will be supported by business development director Paul Worland, operations director Stuart Rothery, design director David Hammond and project management director, Bob Johnson.
"MPS' design and project management expertise will significantly enhance the service offerings of the group's construction and infrastructure services divisions, enabling both Morgan Ashurst and Morgan Est to carry out more complex projects," says Martin Broome. "This is an exciting time for everyone involved and we aim to establish MPS as the leading provider of integrated design, engineering and project management services in the market, and we are well-positioned to achieve this."
MPS has a well established business and customer base in the UK, Europe and China. Its customers include: Airbus, AstraZeneca, Glaxo SmithKline, Novartis, Tubelines, Transport for London and the Learning and Skills Council. MPS services the private and public sector supporting significant public sector growth areas such as defense, health and education.
MPS is a leading professional services business meeting customers' needs in design and engineering, project management, construction management, specialist consultancy, cost planning and project planning. The company has worked across the UK and Europe for more than three decades. A world leader in pharmaceutical design, MPS brings its expertise in this specialism to other market sectors including: defence, education, energy, healthcare, manufacturing, nuclear, transport and waste.
MPS is a member of Morgan Sindall plc, the construction and regeneration group which operates through five specialist divisions of affordable housing, construction, development, fit out and infrastructure services.
