A SUNDERLAND firm of chartered surveyors is outgrowing its roots.
Lofthouse and Partners is aiming to cater for increased demand for services in Durham, Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Teesside, North Yorkshire and the North West with a new Durham office.
The directors expect the move to spur further growth for a firm which already boasts names including Hays Travel, Norchem Pharmacies, Sunderland City Council and Sir John Fitzgerald as clients.
Director Marc Weaver said the move was a natural extension:: “Our client base outside the Wearside area has grown considerably over the past 25 years, with services being provided solely from our Sunderland office up until now.
“What people perhaps don’t realise is that we have very a strong presence in North and South Tyneside, Durham, Teesside and beyond.
“Our new Durham office will link together our coverage of the North East, servicing our clients in the south of the region.
“The time is right and the move is a natural progression for our company.”
