Ridge and Partners has acquired structural and civil engineering consultancy Scott Hughes Design (SHD) in a deal which will see the Manchester company expand into Leeds. Led by founding directors Ian Scott and Wendy Broomhead, SHD’s 21-strong Manchester practice will join the team, with its Leeds office rebranding to fall under its new parent.
“This is an important addition for Ridge. SHD’s passion for innovation, quality and lateral thinking is a perfect fit. With many innovative and challenging projects on the horizon, we are looking forward to achieving our ambitions together,” said Adrian O’Hickey, senior partner.
“The Ridge brand, culture and strategy represents an excellent synergy for the new home of our precious business that has been so carefully honed over the years. We have a meticulous approach that adds value for our clients and this move furthers that aim,” Scott and Broomhead added.
Ridge projects worked on from Leeds and Manchester include Circle Square, Project Urban and Viadux.
