Caulmert’s success leads to further expansion after doubling turnover

 Caulmert’s success leads to further expansion after doubling turnover

Ambitious engineering, environmental and planning consultancy Caulmert has launched a significant recruitment campaign, having doubled its turnover to more than £2m in the last year.

The employee-owned firm is recruiting specialists across a number of disciplines to support further growth over the coming year, increasing its workforce by around 20 per cent.

The company, which employs 40 people at offices in St Asaph, Bangor, Altrincham and Nottingham, has experienced increased demand for its services on residential, industrial, energy, waste and education projects.

Its managing director believes that the expertise is already available among residents in North Wales and surrounding areas.

Posts Caulmert is looking to fill include infrastructure engineers and structural engineers, structural detailers, and town planners.

Caulmert is also relocating its second North Wales office to a new 3,300 sq ft office on the St Asaph Business Park, three times the size of its current premises on the business park, in order to accommodate more staff.

Managing director Mike Caulfield said: “We’re busy and want to bring in more staff to meet our increasing workload.

“The £2m in turnover we recorded over the last financial year is largely due to our efforts to diversify the business into new sectors.

“We’re picking up more and more work across sectors including education, renewables, infrastructure and commercial developments, including some really interesting, challenging projects, both in the UK and overseas.

“We’re optimistic that we can continue to increase our turnover and profit over the coming 12 months, and need to bring in skilled staff to support this growth.
“We’ll soon move to a larger office in St Asaph to accommodate more people. Occasionally in the past, we’ve recruited specialists from elsewhere who’ve relocated to North Wales. I firmly believe that the skills we’re looking for now are already available in North Wales.

“Our Altrincham office is also performing exceptionally well, and we’re looking to bring in more staff to support that team’s work serving clients across the North West.

“Caulmert was founded on the principle of nurturing the skills of its workforce, and we’re keen to recruit employees that want to develop their skills and share our ambition for growth.”

Current projects within Caulmert include the geotechnical, civil and structural engineering design for a number of multi million pound schools developments within North Wales as well as industrial schemes for blue chip international clients, sports facilities for a Premier League football club, commercial developments for business parks and planning consultancy for various renewable energy schemes, such as wind, solar and hydro power.
Our Manchester office has also seen valuable growth through projects such as the engineering design of multi-storey residential buildings, highway structure designs for new residential developments, an educational project in Portsmouth, land remediation schemes throughout the UK and planning consultancy schemes for projects throughout Cheshire and the North West.  
Founded in 2009, Caulmert is on track to meet an ambitious 15-year growth plan that would see it employ 250 people by 2024. Its expertise in a variety of planning, environmental and engineering disciplines is supported by its use of Building Information Modeling (BIM) to a level 2 standard in many of its projects.
