East Yorkshire engineers emerge from The Deep as firm grows
The Ridings Consulting Engineers team

AN EAST Yorkshire engineering consultancy says it is in the perfect location for sustainable growth after moving into new offices at the end of last year.
Ridings Consulting Engineers “outgrew” its former offices and says it has been successful since moving into its new home at Hessle Business Park.
Founding director of the firm Liam Beardshaw says the firm plans to “consolidate” over the next three years and believes the firm is in the ideal environment to do so.
The firm, which has been involved in major jobs in the region, including work with Smith & Nephew, is shaping its future through investing in youth as it settles in the new premises.
After reluctantly moving from The Deep Business Centre due to the firm’s expansion, Mr Beardshaw says the firm is now in a stable position to consolidate and continue work.
He said: “We’ve moved from The Deep to Hesslewood and it’s a fantastic building that is proving a great environment for us.
“We now have nine engineers and we are hoping to increase that, so, just in terms of space, this a lot better for us. It’s also quite practical logistically as well.
“We took the decision because we had outgrown our older office space and felt we needed somewhere new. The Deep offices worked well for us, but now we feel this is just the ideal place for us and our clients.
“We’ve taken on more engineers and plan to take on more office space to continue this positive growth.”
ON THE MOVE: Ian Grimwood, left, and Liam Beardshaw
Ian Grimwood and Liam Beardshaw launched the business in May 2015. Ian brought more than 30 years’ experience and Liam had been working in the sector for 11 years.
Mr Beardshaw said: “We are growing together with a lot of the companies we work for. Growing together with them has certainly helped us develop and meet new clients.
“We have worked with the likes of Smith & Nephew, and also been involved through the nationwide schools framework.
“We haven’t specialised in any, one specific sector, but, obviously, do a lot in health care. The aim now is to consolidate. We have invested in order to help us develop, but we don’t expect to suddenly grow rapidly over the next three years. We want to consolidate this and grow at a logical speed.”
The company offers design services for all building services installations where an energy efficient design is paramount. It operates in a wide range of buildings including commercial, industrial, healthcare, public and private sectors.
The current workload includes projects at Castle Hill Hospital in Cottingham, care homes in Hull and York and even a leisure centre in North Lincolnshire.
