Announcing our new office in Cambridge, marking a major milestone in expansion

This isn't just any expansion – it’s a bold step forward in our mission of 'making projects happen.'

We have experienced robust growth over the past few years, with turnover increasing 24% to £10.8m in the 2023/2024 financial year, fuelled by an expanding portfolio of high-profile clients and landmark projects across various sectors, including science, technology, education, healthcare, residential, and commercial.

The new Cambridge office will enable us to strengthen our relationships with existing clients and attract new business opportunities in the Oxford Cambridge Arc region. We have a long-standing connection to Cambridge and the surrounding area, having worked on numerous projects over the years. In fact, our very first project, project number ‘0001’, was in Cambridgeshire - Alconbury Incubator Building for Urban & Civic. Our current projects in Cambridge include Vitrum - a 206,000 sq ft new build lab for Breakthrough Properties, a 120,000 sq ft fully fitted new build lab for Aviva, and several other high-profile projects.

The new Cambridge office, nestled in the heart of this historic and innovative city, will be headed up by equity partners David Happell and Nigel Hawes, along with newly promoted partner Neil Stevens. Their leadership and expertise will be instrumental in driving the company's success in this vibrant region, with plans to grow the office to £3m turnover in the next five years.

"Our vision is to be recognised as the best at providing innovative cost management to clients across the UK," said David Happell. "This vision is supported by our commitment to sustainable growth through exceptional client service delivery, collaboration with consultants, and the development of our people.”

In addition to enhancing client service, the Cambridge office will also facilitate the recruitment of top-tier talent from the local area. Cambridge's reputation as a centre for academic excellence and innovation aligns seamlessly with exigere's commitment to employing the best and brightest in the industry.

Keep an eye out for more updates as we gear up for the official opening. We can't wait to celebrate this exciting milestone with all our clients and partners!
