Engineering, environment and design consultancy Sweco UK has continued its growth and expansion with the opening of a new office in Stockton-on-Tees, Teesside.

Located within the Durham Tees Valley Business Centre, the office will complement the consultancy’s existing 11 locations in the UK and contribute to the multidisciplinary services covering buildings, environment, energy, transportation and water and asset management offered by the company.

The office has initially been occupied by a team of four transportation experts with significant experience in delivering intelligent transport systems, such as smart motorways, which are being implemented across the UK.

The Stockton-based team is currently working on a variety of Highways England projects, including the implementation of a stretch of smart motorway between junctions 9 and 14 of the M3 in Hampshire. Other projects that Sweco is already assisting with across the north east include the A1 Leeming to Barton upgrade and the A1 Scotswood to North Brunton project. 

With expansion of the Stockton office already underway, the consultancy is also seeking to add further resource and expertise to its multidisciplinary teams across the UK.

Commenting on the new office launch, Sweco UK managing director, Max Joy, said: “We have experienced consistent, positive revenue growth since we launched and our consultancy work in the north east has made a significant contribution to that success. We chose to open in Stockton to give us a greater footprint in the region, in addition to our established Gateshead office, and as part of our strategic growth plans across the UK. It provides us with the platform to generate further sustainable growth and gives our clients enhanced access to our services and specialisms.”

Stockton-based Sweco technical director Stuart Wilson, added: “It is fantastic to be part of such a fast-growing, forward-thinking business which recognises the huge opportunities for growth in the region and beyond. We are looking forward to expanding the Teesside office and supporting Sweco’s multidisciplinary project delivery throughout the UK.”
