Another great year for Team Ridge!

As 2017 nears an end, we are reflecting on another great year here at Ridge!

With successful projects undertaken, new and exciting commissions for 2018 in the pipeline and a number of growing teams, we look forward to continued success for the year ahead.

2017 Highlights:

Major Government Framework Success

We were delighted to share our success on being selected for two major Government frameworks. In March we won appointments for Technical Advisory and Project Management services on the £multi-billion Eucation Funding Agency framework. At the end of May, we were awarded the the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) Project Management and Full Design Team Services framework. Ridge is one of the just nine national suppliers achieving the maximum of three Lot awards.

The PMFDTS framework provides strategic advice across a wide range of disciplines and functions to support, guide and deliver innovative building and property solutions that will achieve best value for the public sector. It will enable all public sector customers to access project management, design and advisory services to support their property and construction projects. The framework is the first point of “cradle to grave” services provision in CCS.

The Ridge team is now looking forward to working with the CCS to maximise the successful delivery of this major framework with public sector clients.

Staff Promoted to Equity Partner Level

At the start of 2017 we were delighted with the appointment of two new Equity Partners within the business, Richard Thorpe and Mark Richards. Richard, who joined the practice in 2000 has extensive project management and lead consultant experience in construction and property management, particularly in overseas schemes. Mark Richards joined Ridge in 1987, starting at entry level within the practice he now leads the Cost Management team within the Oxford office.

Winner of the Building Awards 2017

We were absolutely delighted to have been named winners at this year’s Building Awards for Construction Consultant/Surveyor of the Year (100 staff or over).

Ridge Appointed on Major Residential Schemes for MODA Living

Ridge is pleased to be working with MODA Living on three multi-million pound schemes in Liverpool (The Lexington, Princes Dock), Manchester (Angel Gardens) and Birmingham (Broad Street).
