Due to continued growth in the South East region, UK environmental consultancy REC Ltd has relocated one of its 11 UK offices to new larger premises at the Capital Business Centre in Croydon. REC, a multi-disciplinary consultancy, specialising in a comprehensive range of environmental services, inspection, regulatory and risk management has had a base in the South East for over eight years and has been based at the Capital Business Centre since 2013.
Croydon has undergone an economic surge of late which has been fuelled by Croydon Council’s £5.25bn investment to help enhance the local economy and infrastructure. According to Accountancy Group, Croydon topped the list of 173 areas as the fastest growing UK region with an annual growth rate of 9.3%. Also, earlier in 2016 the minister of state responsible for digital policy at the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, Matthew Hancock, visited Croydon and described it as ‘the blueprint for the future’.
The new larger premises, which are just to the South of Croydon town centre, not only represent REC’s ongoing commitment to its customers in the South East but also provides REC with the opportunity to better manage its growth, providing further flexibility to expand.
REC’s Regional Director-South, Stuart Phillips explains “We’re thrilled to be moving to these new premises. The move is testament to the increasing amount of work we have in the area and we look forward to continuing to support both our existing and new clients here.”
REC’S Managing Director, Gary Winder added “The new office provides us with bigger premises from which to serve our South East client base and continues to provide strong links to our other offices too, underlining our commitment to being a national environmental consultancy that delivers locally.”
