A building consultant has doubled its workforce after moving into larger premises.

Ingleton Wood moved to a larger premises in Thorney Leys Business Park in Witney last year.

The company’s team grew from eight to 20 members over the course of this year and identified increased demand as the reason for its success.

Peter Webb, director of building services engineering at Ingleton Wood, said: "To see our team expand at such a rate is very encouraging and speaks volumes about the quality and breadth of our multi-disciplinary services."

The company described growth in its heritage, leisure and residential sectors, as well as across sustainability and engineering departments, which it hopes to expand further.

Mr Webb went on to highlight the importance of the office move for the company which has sites across the country - including in Oxford.

He said: "When initially moving into our office in Oxford we had a clear desire to expand our team, allowing us to meet the needs of our new repeat client base in Oxfordshire and the surrounding area."

Each additional team member provides key skills that help to design, create and project-manage high-quality, energy-efficient and eco-friendly buildings.

The company also introduced a structural engineering team as part of its Oxfordshire expansion.

Josh Lawrence, senior associate structural engineer, joined the Oxford team in January 2023.
