09.5.2018

The Winchester office has celebrated its 10th anniversary in the region. Located on Moorside Road, Ridge has worked at the centre of the local community on key projects including Lovedon Fields, a unique residential development and vision of Kevin McCloud, Winchester College and the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton. Ridge was also a proud winner of the prestigious Building Awards ‘Construction Consultant of the Year’ in 2017.

Richard Hand, Partner, set up the first south coast office in 2008, with only three employees. The team has since grown to over 80 and moved from the outskirts of Southampton to its current location in Winchester.

Ridge Winchester provides a full range of multi-disciplinary consultancy services including surveying, engineering, project management and health and safety. The office also acts as a UK centre of excellence for large scale housing survey projects and sustainability assessments (including BREEAM).

Richard Hand, said “I am incredibly proud of the Ridge team in Winchester; the growth and development of the office over the last 10 years has provided real opportunities for local talent and has led to one of the south’s largest professional property and construction consultancies”.

In the organisation’s 70th year, Ridge Winchester raised over £12,000 for its chosen charities.  A range of events were undertaken ranging from sleep outs to skydives. Richard explains:

“We are passionate about supporting our local community and host regular fundraising activities to raise money for a range of organisations including Trinity Winchester and Naomi House.”

With a current workforce of 83, the Ridge Winchester office has set a target of employing 100 staff members by 2020.
