EVOLUTION5 ACQUIRES JOHN SMITH PROJECTS
Evolution5 is pleased to announce the acquisition of Winchester construction consultancy, John Smith Projects (JSP). The move sees Evolution5 expand to its third location across London and the South.
John Smith Projects is a Winchester based construction consultancy which has been established over 30 years and has delivered projects internationally. The team continues to be led by Andrew Wainewright and will remain in its city centre location after the transfer.
The investment represents an important strategic opportunity to enhance the services currently offered by both businesses. The JSP team has a strong track record of delivering projects to the residential sector which will further enhance Evolution5’s skillset. Similarly, Evolution5 will offer JSP clients access to its wider range of consultancy services which includes Construction Management and Principal Design roles.
Andrew Wainewright, Managing Director of JSP commented.
“I am looking forward to leading JSP into a new chapter as part of Evolution5, which shares our strong focus on high standards and belief in delivering excellent client service.”
Commenting on this acquisition, Jamie Barrett, Managing Director of Evolution5, said, “We are delighted to welcome the JSP team to Evolution5. The acquisition is important to the continued growth of Evolution5, whilst reinforcing the expertise within the team. JSP is a great fit with Evolution5 with both companies sharing core business principles based on delivering an excellent, bespoke service to clients.”
The full integration of the businesses will take around three months during which time, clients will not notice any impact on service delivery. Both teams will continue to operate to their usual high standards.
In the coming weeks our website will be updated with more details of projects delivered by the JSP team – who will also be added to the Team page.
