A local structural and civil engineering consultancy has reported that 2018 was a record year for the Compstall-based company, in which it surpassed all previous records for the volume of work which it had handled.
Rhodes & Partners offers a wide range of professional services for both small domestic and large commercial projects.
“Last year was tremendously busy for us, and we exceeded our previous record for the number of jobs recorded over a one-year period by 10%,” says managing director Nick Ribbeck. “We have been following a strategy of carefully managed and sustained growth, and this latest landmark is proof that our strategy is working.
“Over the past 26 years we have worked on well over 22,500 jobs. In the process, we’ve developed a very wide range of specialist skills. That enables us to handle a very wide variety of different project types.
“This latest achievement reflects the fact that more and more customers are turning to us for our expertise, no matter whether it’s a domestic job, a major commercial or residential development, or a project in the retail, leisure, education or healthcare sector.
“In the past year we’ve worked on quite a number of interesting and unusual projects. These have included everything from a large, new 80-bed care home, converting a derelict Grade II listed mill into luxury apartments, and contributing to a £70 million tidal barrier scheme in Ipswich.
“At the other end of the scale, we have completed numerous residential projects and almost 200 structural engineering inspections and reports, whilst in the commercial sector we’ve carried out structural design work for industrial mixer units, glass flooring designs and children’s playframes to name but a few. We’ve even worked on a project in the sunny Caribbean, although sadly we didn’t get to visit the site!”
