Omnia’s North Office
We are pleased to announce the opening of a third UK office, based in Preston, Lancashire
The natural progression for us is to expand regionally throughout the country and, having looked around, we really focused in on the North West. We settled on Preston and it’s hugely exciting. It opens up a whole new market for us and it really draws on our skillset across the board. There’s a huge amount of industrial heritage and brownfield regeneration, with an awful lot of investment going into the region. There are some great skillsets and some great people up there, so we’re excited about stepping up into the North West and bringing our unique offering of multi-disciplinary consultancy to the region.
– Lee McDonald, Managing Director
Omnia has grown significantly, from one office in the South, to opening a Midlands office in 2019, and now to opening a third office in 2022. Last year saw the team more than double in size, with a surge in recruitment across our different service lines. Our growth of workforce has enabled us to carry out more projects than ever before, including an increased demand for work in the North West. A third office felt like a natural progression for Omnia and the base in the North West will help us better serve the whole of the UK.
Our Director, Tim, has relocated from the South and will be overseeing the expansion and the operations in the region. Tim has been with Omnia since our beginning and is now keen to progress our expansion to the North.
The North West is a key growth area of the country, with Preston considered to be the ideal location for accessing the main urban areas of the region including Liverpool, Lancaster, Manchester and across into east Lancashire. Our core service offering are tailored to fit into the progression of a scheme from due diligence and throughout the planning process, and I’m sure this will allow us to increase our work with developers in the region, achieving the high level of recommendations and quality reputation we have elsewhere in the country.
– Tim Mitchell, Director
There is an increasing number of high-profile projects in the North West region, and we want to have a base within close proximity to areas of regeneration. This applies to Preston, which is benefitting from the Government’s Towns Fund, making it a hub for regeneration and prominent projects.
Our base in Preston is ideal for accessing other major cites. With the M6 right on our doorstep, Manchester and Liverpool are only a short drive away and we have the ability to easily reach locations further North. With the addition of HS2, Preston will be just one hour20 minutes from London, allowing good connections to both the North and the South.
