Speaking of his appointment, Nathan said:
“Ridge is a dynamic consultancy with ambitious plans in the South West. It’s an exciting time to join the organisation, not only to work with the team on its roster of live projects, but to also diversify into new sectors and help grow the practice. Working closely with Ridge offices nationally, we are able to provide a vast range of multidisciplinary services for our regional clients, from project management to architecture.”
Phil Baker, Partner at Ridge and head of its Bristol office, said:
“Nathan joining us is another step in the development of Ridge in Bristol. By driving our Project Management business forwards, his appointment supports our ambition of offering a true quality service to our clients. Nathan joins Ridge at a time when we have invested hugely in our Bristol team, with our office growing by over 30% in the past 12 months. This year, we plan to relocate into the city and continue with our target of being a major force in the construction industry in Bristol. We have outstanding people across a whole range of disciplines, offering our clients a tailored solution or a one-stop shop. We are working with some of the region’s most high-profile businesses and we plan to reach more clients during 2022.”
