Web Structures’ plans to expand its London operation remain well on track as the European headquarters continues to add to its project portfolio.
The consultancy, which also has offices in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur and Shanghai, continues to build a growing portfolio of projects as it works with leading UK-based architects like Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners on new developments and projects around the world.
Web Structures revealed its expansion plans for London at the end of last year and has already started adding to its team working out of the latest of its global offices.
Dr Hossein Rezai, Web Structures’ group director, says: “The growth of our London operation remains on track as we continue to expand the team there and build on its strong first two years of operation.
“The diversity of the projects our London team has been engaged with has been very encouraging for us and we are excited about the future of Web Structures in the city.”
The Thames Wharf Studios office was opened in 2011 ago as part of Web Structures’ ambitious global expansion plans – and to build on the strong working relationships the consultancy has with major UK and European-based architecture practices.
Web Structures already worked closely with top British architects including Foster + Partners, on large-scale projects across the globe and the new office was opened to further build on those relationships.
Explaining the reason for the office opening, Dr Rezai says: “As we continue our growth the London operation will play a key part, opening up new avenues of work for us.
“It also made logistical sense for us to have a base in London given the amount of work we are involved in across the world with the top architectural firms that are based in the city.”
As part of its expansion plans a new division of Web Structures, Web Earth was also launched in 2012, specialising in sustainable building design, water resources and carbon foot-printing and management.
It has worked on a number of major projects in partnership with architects including Foster & Partners, Hamiltons International and SCDA.
