“This exciting acquisition presents my team with the perfect opportunity to access scale and a platform for growth, both within the region and nationally. After 10 years in business, we are delighted to become part of the tp bennett success story and bring our teams together to create a new regional centre of excellence for design and strategic workplace consultancy.”
