Purcell Miller Tritton buys South West-based Niall Phillips Architects

Following a two-year courtship, Purcell Miller Tritton has acquired South West-based practice Niall Phillips Architects for an undisclosed sum.

The move ends Niall Phillips' long running search for a large suitor to acquire his eponymous 15-strong Bristol-based firm (Niall Phillips launches search for merger or sale ).

Purcell Miller Tritton, which has a strong record in heritage and conservation projects, employs 150 staff throughout its nine offices, but prior to the deal did not have a foothold in the South West.

Niall Phillips Architects is one of Bristol's most successful practices, and its experience of both new-build and conservation projects - including the £7 million overhaul of Wolverhampton Art Gallery - made the firm a key target.

Niall Phillips said he was 'delighted' by the deal, and added: 'Most of our projects are new-build and therefore I believe we are a vital element in the continuing development of Purcell Miller Tritton and its already varied portfolio of projects.'
