Two of Scotland’s largest practices, The Holmes Partnership and The Miller Partnership, have joined forces
A spokesman for the newly formed practice - Holmes Miller - said there would be no redundancies following the merger of the long-established Glasgow-based outfits.
Holmes’ chairman Harry Phillips said: ‘The Miller team brings experience in depth of sectors not covered by Holmes, including sports stadia and social housing. The merger of the two practices strengthens the long-term prospects for the new combined team. We are enthusiastic about the increased opportunities that the merger brings.’
A spokesman added: ‘We will be looking to recruit some additional BIM-experienced resources in the coming weeks…. [with] the Miller stadia projects moving into a resource-hungry phase.
‘It seems completely counter-intuitive given the last two years’ experience, but it is a very positive and exciting time.’
Miller has recently recently won two large tenders for the Hampden stadium revamp for the Commonwealth Games which are to be held in Glasgow in 2014.
The new practice will operate out of Holmes’ purpose-designed offices at 89 Minerva Street and will be incorporated on 1 January 2012.
