Pell Frischmann Expands Presence in Yorkshire with New Leeds Office and Key Appointment
Pell Frischmann, a leading multidisciplinary engineering consultancy, is thrilled to announce the expansion of its Land Development team with the opening of a new office in Leeds, located at The Leeming Building on Ludgate Hill.
Pell Frischmann’s Land Development team, led by Sector Director, Paul Smith, has been on an impressive growth trajectory over the past six years. With a team of over 40 technical staff, this expansion into Leeds represents a significant milestone in the company’s growth, further enhancing its capacity to support existing clients and projects.
Leading Our Team
Heading the Leeds office is Pell Frischmann’s newly appointed Technical Director, Matthew Addison. For the past decade, Matthew has been a key figure in providing specialist transport planning advice to the North of England market. He has contributed to several prestigious schemes, including the Headingley Stadium north/south stands on behalf of Caddick Developments and securing planning consent for 1,300 dwellings on an unallocated site at Bartle to the north-west of Preston.
In a statement following his appointment, Matthew said,
My decision to join Pell Frischmann was a natural progression and one that aligns with the company’s reputation for delivering innovative highway solutions to both public and private sector clients. I’m eager to help grow the sector while maintaining the exceptional standard of service that clients have come to expect from Pell Frischmann.
Our Experience in the Region
Pell Frischmann’s commitment to the region is already evident through their involvement in significant projects throughout Leeds. This includes their long-standing partnership with Scarborough Group in providing highways advice for the impressive Thorpe Park business park development. This remarkable project encompasses over 1 million sq. ft. of office space and 350,000 sq. ft. of retail and leisure space at The Springs.
Additionally, Pell Frischmann is currently engaged in delivering specialised highways consultancy services for the proposed Eastern Triangle site at Blackmoor. This project aims to provide 60,000 sq. m. of general industrial and storage and distribution floor space. It is currently in for planning consultation with Leeds City Council and National Highways.
The multidisciplinary consultancy has also been instrumental in providing transport planning advice to Platform for their residential-led mixed-use development off Sweet Street, south of Leeds Station. This project comprises numerous multi-storey blocks, offering approximately 450 build-to-rent apartments, 14,000 sq. m. of offices, 900 dwellings, and ground-floor retail space.
Pell Frischmann’s expansion into Leeds signifies a forward-looking vision for the company. This move is not just about establishing another office; it’s about strategically positioning themselves to better serve their clients and support the development aspirations of the Yorkshire region.
The company is excited about the possibilities this brings and looks forward to contributing to the region’s continued growth and development.
