Stephen George + Partners grows with acquisition of two practices

  • Comment

Expanding AJ100 practice Stephen George + Partners has bought the businesses of Leeds-based healthcare specialist Enable by Design and Birmingham-based Mkguru Architect

The two mergers grow the workforce at the company – ranked 85th in last year’s AJ100 – to more than 90. 

According to Stephen George + Partners the arrival of Enable by Design has given ‘additional momentum to [the company’s] expansion plans’ with its ‘decades of specialist healthcare knowledge and expertise including working with various forms of contracts and procurement routes’.

Led by director Steve Batson, all of Enable by Design’s team has now become part of the Stephen George + Partners team based at the practice’s Leeds office.

Meanwhile the company’s growth in the West Midlands has been boosted by the recent merger with Birmingham’s Mkguru Architect and relocation to bigger premises at Longbridge Technology Park.

Kumar Muniandy, director of Stephen George + Partners’ Birmingham office, said: ’The Midlands region is experiencing tremendous economic growth and we’re seeing continued investor confidence in property and development.

’The move to a larger, permanent office in Longbridge demonstrates [our] long-term commitment to help drive the future growth of the region and we’ll be looking to build on our workload in residential, retail and leisure, commercial and industrial.’

The acquisitions coincide with the practice’s submission of plans for a major transformation of Leicester’s former Great Central Station and former Stibbe factory into hotels, offices and new public space.
