Cassidy + Ashton opens office in the capital

Preston based architectural, planning and surveying practice Cassidy + Ashton has expanded its presence in the south with the launch of a dedicated London office.

The firm employs more than 50 in the North West across its offices in Preston, Chester and North Wales. It was recently awarded the RTPI NW award for its involvement on the redevelopment of the Preston Bus Station.

It also has a growing portfolio of projects in and around London, including several high value residential schemes in Knightsbridge and a multi-million pound development for 160 apartments and retail outlets in Haringey.

Cassidy + Ashton is involved with projects in the boroughs of Camden, Southwark, Wandsworth, Hillingdon, Haringey, Newham, Kensington and Chelsea, Lambeth and Lewisham.

Alban Cassidy, director at Cassidy + Ashton said that the new central London location, at Earl's Court, would also allow the company to attract high calibre employees.

He said: “Having worked in London for a number of years on a variety of projects, we decided a stronger presence was necessary.

“A London office also enables us to service other ongoing projects in the south of England including a renewable energy scheme in Hampshire and urban extensions in Cambridgeshire.”
