A Yorkshire engineering company has opened a new office in Birmingham.

Leeds-based JPG Group has expanded its UK footprint by launching the base in Cornwall Buildings, Newhall Street, in order to facilitate expansion in the West Midlands and support its growth plans for the south.

Established in 1988, JPG provides civil and structural engineering consultancy services for clients throughout the UK in fields such as structural engineering, site investigation, design and geospatial analysis.


It currently employs 45 people at its Leeds headquarters and new team members will join the Midlands office under the leadership of board director David Allwood.

He said: "We are delighted to cement our presence in the Midlands with a permanent office right in the heart of Birmingham city centre.

"We continue to have a strong pipeline of projects in the region across a range of development sectors.

"We see fantastic opportunities in the Midlands, particularly in the feasibility support on strategic sites identified for much-needed new residential conurbations as highlighted in the Birmingham development plan.

"While we have an established project portfolio across the whole of the UK, having a more permanent base in the Midlands will allow us to expand our regional project pipeline with a team that can also more readily deliver projects in the south.

"This strategic move forms an important milestone in our growth plans."
