We’ve committed to the detail and build arm of the business with the appointment of Ken Malpass as Business Unit Director.
Ken has joined Office Principles to head up what is an already successful division, adding weight to the existing team and strengthening the offering as this area of the business continues to enjoy rapid growth.
The company has completed over 90 significant projects, fitting out over 660,000 sq ft of office space in the last two years, and has evidenced a strong focus on projects that have been designed to RIBA stages two and three during this time.
These have been great projects to engage with, sitting alongside the design and build contracts that have become our signature. With Ken on board, we’re now expecting to further benefit from the rising trend in detail and build and to fast track the growth of our market share.
Detail and build is far more prevalent across the wider industry at the moment, with many architects happy to pass their projects to the main contractor to finish at an earlier stage. As we are expert at design co-ordination, at Office Principles, and have a track record for ensuring that transition is seamless and cost certainty, project delivery and health and safety is maintained, we are hoping that we will fill our order book with many more of these projects in 2019.
Ken is highly experienced and his input will be crucial. An experienced project director, with a strong background in commercial fit out and design management, Ken has worked in the fit out industry for almost twenty years and will play a key role in the company’s future growth.
It’s great to have him on board !
