Leading national engineering consultancy Pell Frischmann has announced further investment in Manchester, with a significant office expansion into St James Square.

The company first landed in Manchester in 2018 with one employee and has rapidly grown its headcount to 50 as a result of successful projects delivered across the region, creating a variety of jobs for people based locally including apprenticeships, graduate positions through to senior consultants and directors. 

The new office space, spanning 7K sq. ft, will serve as a centre for collaboration and innovation and will be a central hub for the family of companies under the parent company RSBG UK group, including McBains, 4Way, and Desco.

“Greater Manchester is a wonderful place to live, work and enjoy. Pell Frischmann have had great success, continuing growth, achieving enhanced reputation by delivering a high quality, responsive service with best-in-class communication. We have built a high performing team here and that has been aided by the access that we have to a broad talent pool of real quality people with the unique work ethic that exists in Manchester.

Pell Frischmann has a long standing, demonstrable reputation for the delivery of complex, high profile projects of scale and we are delighted to have been able to support GMCA, Manchester City Council, Bury Council, Rochdale Council, Stockport Council and Tameside Council in the delivery of their major investments and transformational projects.

Manchester has always done things their own way, been brave, set its own agenda and so we are confident in a bright future, continued business growth and are pleased to be playing a part in the success of this wonderful city region.
