Business Description
Business overview

– An outstanding opportunity to acquire a successful structural engineering consultancy based in central London.

– Established in 1985, this is a profitable business, which is growing its revenue significantly again following a difficult year in 2010.

– With a ready made client list including housing associations and local authorities as well as private individuals and companies, this business represents an excellent opportunity for an architectural or other engineering consultancy to acquire new business with little additional overhead or advertising.

– Equally the business would be of interest to individual qualified engineers looking to start their own practice with a ready made client base and business infrastructure.

- > 90% of the business is recurrent work from the existing client base, which leaves room for the new buyer to expand the business through re-invigorated marketing.

– The consultancy is ISO 9001:2000 quality assured, EXOR and Construction Line accredited and a member of the Association of Consulting Engineers (ACE). It is also an approved supplier with Tower Hamlets, Greenwich and Southwark councils.
