Winchester based Ridge and Partners LLP (Ridge) has celebrated a year of success, growing to a team of more than 80, well on the way to the target of 100 staff members by 2020.

Ridge has worked on a number of high profile local projects during 2018, including Winchester College, University of Winchester and Lovedon Fields, as well as an ongoing project at Leckford Estate, as part of their work with John Lewis & Partners. They were instrumental in the £5 million refurbishment of Southampton’s Mayflower Theatre; providing procurement and cost management support.

Richard Hand, Partner, set up the first south coast office in 2008, with only three employees and has watched the organisation grow over the years. He said: “Ten years on from our inception in the south, we have enjoyed a successful 2018. From new client wins, awards success and charity endeavours, to welcoming new staff to our growing team, I am incredibly proud of our success.”

This year also saw Ridge announce the acquisition of highly regarded planning consultancy Hunter Page Planning Ltd (HPP) and this is certainly a growing area for the Winchester team. Moving into 2019, the Ridge Winchester will be looking to grow their team further, with recruitment opportunities in all teams.
