Office Principles have a strategic growth strategy, and are continuing to expand throughout the UK.

Birmingham has the highest number of employees of any city outside London with just under 500,000, a key factor for us in making the decision to open our fourth office in this important city.

Birmingham is centrally located between our Reading and Manchester offices and means that we are better able to service our clients in the Midlands region. Birmingham is currently experiencing an unprecedented period of change as billions of pounds is invested, transforming the City's economy.


Our purpose to Enable Great Organisations has never been more important, as we help organisations who are growing and relocating within the region and throughout the UK.

The Birmingham office is fully staffed, with the team headed up by Tina Batham and Gary Tailby.

They are supported by a full team of office interior designers both creative and technical, led by Claire Stant, Design Director, also senior commercial surveyors and operations managers to provide a complete team, all of whom have worked together for many years on numerous projects for clients across all business sectors.

The team in Birmingham have over the years become the go-to team for companies that are looking to increase their workplace efficiency, enhance employee comfort and retention, and want their projects completed on time and within budget.

If you have an office design or interior fit-out project in the Midlands region, then please speak to Tina Batham or Gary Tailby to discuss your requirements.
