Team HPP joins Ridge LLP
25 July 2018 | Ridge News
For some time, the team at Hunter Page Planning (HPP) have been carefully considering the best direction to develop our specialist planning business that will provide strong career opportunities for our staff, maximise our growth potential and deliver continuity of the high quality, personalised service expected from HPP. The culmination of this initiative has been the acquisition of the HPP business by Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge) on 20 July 2018.
The ethos and service offering of Ridge is a great fit for HPP. Like us, they take the time to fully understand their clients’ aspirations and expectations, whilst always delivering professional expertise and excellence with quality and reliability, first and foremost. In recognition of this, they won the ultimate award for consultants in the sector at the Building Awards as “Construction Consultant of the Year 2017/18”.
Founded in 1946, Ridge is a leading multi-discipline property and construction consultancy employing over 600 people with 10 UK offices in Oxford, Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Liverpool, Leicester, Manchester, Reading and Winchester. This will enable the development of our planning services from local offices across the UK. Ridge also operates internationally and has delivered projects in over 75 countries worldwide.
Ridge ‘core’ disciplines include Project Management, Cost Management, Health & Safety, Building Surveying, Architecture, Building Services Engineering, Civil & Structural Engineering, Building Services Maintenance Management, Property Consultancy, Sustainability, Expert Witness & Advisory Services, Traffic & Transportation, Infrastructure Commercial Management and Geo-Environmental.
It is vitally important that the HPP personalised service will continue largely unaltered, with a seamless integration being affected by Ridge. In addition, we will now be able to provide a wider range of disciplines and specialist services with increased professional resources at our disposal.
The former Directors of HPP are now Partners in Ridge and form the management team for the Ridge planning service. We will therefore continue our commitment to provide the standard of service and tailored approach that HPP has provided in previous years. We are not moving office, our telephone number is remaining the same and, to allow for a smooth transition, the existing email details will remain live for a period of time.
We have no doubt that our joining the Ridge business will be a significant benefit to all our existing and prospective clients, ensuring excellent service delivery with surety of our business’ operations whilst adding value and enabling growth.
