Capita Symonds snaps up architects ESA

  • Comment

Public sector giant Capita Symonds has bought ESA Architects for an undisclosed sum

The 60-strong practice with offices in London, Hull and Katowice, Poland will ‘integrate’ with the company’s existing architecture business according to a statement.

Projects covered by the practice include a 10,000m² headquarters for US medical technology company Stryker in Newbury (pictured) and the mixed-use regeneration of Szczecin’s docklands in Poland.

Capita Symonds executive director of design and infrastructure John Southgate said: ‘Capita Symonds is a constantly evolving organisation and this acquisition emphasises our commitment to investing in success by bringing in strong businesses to supplement our existing capability in key sectors.

Alastair Roberts, ESA managing director added: ‘Joining Capita Symonds gives us the opportunity to rise to the exciting challenges ahead and further develop and grow as a practice.

‘Our commercial private sector expertise and excellent client base, in conjunction with the strong Capita Symonds brand, particularly in the public sector, offers our combined team excellent opportunities for the future, both in the UK and Europe.’
