An engineering, environmental, and planning consultancy’s impressive portfolio of North Wales projects has featured in a leading business publication.
Caulmert was invited to contribute to a report in Wales Business Insider on how the Welsh construction sector is booming.
Co-founder and managing director Mike Caulfield spoke to journalist Neil Tague about Caulmert’s North Wales activities for the magazine, which is read by 200,000 business leaders monthly.
He joined a number of industry figures commenting on the region’s success, with bosses from Watkin Jones, Hale Construction, and Wynne Construction also sharing their thoughts for the piece.
The St-Asaph and Bangor-based company is working on major projects in North Wales, while it has recently finished on the £20m M-Sparc Science Park on Anglesey, which is expected to create more than 100 jobs.
It is also carrying out engineering services for an £8.5m extra-care development in Holywell, and assisting with the redevelopment of Colwyn Bay pier.
Mike said: “We’ve gone from starting up with two employees 10 years ago, to having a team of almost 50, and being in North Wales has played a major role in our growth.
“The region has lots of interesting developments currently underway, and there is no sign of things slowing down, as we’ve had to increase our staff numbers by 20 per cent to meet client demands.
“Being based in North Wales has also helped us establish ourselves further a field, as we work on projects in Europe, and as far as a tiny island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean!”
Caulmert has achieved a record turnover of £2.8m in 2018, and is aiming to increase it by 25 per cent as it works towards a long-term plan of employing 250 people by 2024.
The employee-owned consultancy also has offices in Altrincham, Nottingham, and Kent.
Its expertise in a variety of planning, environmental and engineering projects is supported by the use of Building Information Modelling (BIM) processes and modelling to meet PAS1192 level 2.
