Property consultancy firm Harris Lamb has delivered on its promise to expand by acquiring horticulture planning specialist Malcolm Scott Consultants.
Harris Lamb, which has offices throughout the Midlands — in Birmingham, Stoke-on-Trent and Worcester — has left a deeper footprint in the region by acquiring Worcester-based Malcolm Scott Consultants in an undisclosed deal.
The move has been seen within the industry as part of the business’s announcement at the start of the year that it would expand to increase its workforce by around 15 per cent. Harris Lamb was founded in 1992 and currently employs more than 50 people in the UK.
The acquired firm Malcolm Scott Consultants will, nevertheless, continue to operate under its own name, which is well-known in the sector and has been in operation for more than 30 years. However, the business will soon be relocated to the Worcester branch of Harris Lamb.
Neil Harris, the director of Harris Lamb, said of the deal: "We recognised a synergy between both businesses and have been working together to bring [Malcolm Scott Consultants] under the Harris Lamb umbrella in order to strengthen our service offering.
"The business is particularly well respected for its work within the horticultural sector, offering extensive experience of consulting on the design and development of garden centres throughout the world and preparing feasibility studies for new build or extensions to existing sites.
"We feel that this experience and expertise will be a huge asset to our own services and allows us to extend our own planning department's offering.”
