Global engineering consultancy Meinhardt has announced that it will adapt its Birmingham office to accommodate for the delivery of integrated design management services. The new service will support 50 Meinhardt offices worldwide.

Launched over 65 years ago, Meinhardt is a global advisory firm whose clients include developers, construction companies, government agencies, multinational corporations and NGOs. The firm’s 5,000-strong global team work across 51 offices to deliver projects around the world.

As part of its continued investment in Birmingham, the firm has now revealed plans to make the locale its UK hub for the delivery of integrated design management services.

Meinhardt first launched its Birmingham presence in 2019. In the years since, the firm has delivered civil and structural design consultancy services at the 14-storey Timber Yard residential development in Birmingham’s Southside district, and MEP services at the £165 million Soho Wharf scheme, both on behalf of The Galliard Apsley Partnership. It was also appointed by Midgard to deliver facade access consultancy services as part of the development of the world’s first octagon-shaped residential tower at the Paradise scheme in Birmingham city centre.

As the office is grown and developed to accommodate its new design capacity, the changes will be overseen by Nathaniel Gregory. Leading Meinhardt’s engineering design and project management services in the UK, he brings almost a decade of expertise in leading the delivery of large-scale multidisciplinary projects and complex master planning schemes, both in the UK and internationally. Recent experience includes multi-use developments, high rise residential towers, hotels, schools and student accommodation on behalf of Neat Developments, Keystone, Qualis and London Borough of Haringey, as well as significant clients across the Middle East.

Gregory said, “I’m incredibly excited to be spearheading Meinhardt’s continuing investment into the West Midlands and to be leading its Birmingham office. There is a real hunger to continue to grow a sustainable and thriving team and to continue to provide excellent consultancy services to our clients in the region.”
