Acies goes for gold

Acies puts two 2012 Olympic triathlon prospects through their paces using the tools of the trade to launch its new identity.
Professional property and construction consultancy, Acies, has kick started its recent re-brand with the sponsorship of two 2012 Olympic triathlon prospects, Steve Worthington and Lois Rosindale who are currently preparing for the 2012 games.

The decision to re-brand reflects the continued growth of the business, formerly known as PWP Consulting LLP. Originally providing project management, civil and structural engineering and CDM Co-ordination expertise, Acies has also recently expanded its services by setting up an Architecture company specialising in retail and commercial schemes. The Acies Group also offers building surveying services throughout the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.

Acies is currently instructed on a wide variety of schemes including Lingley Mere in Warrington for Muse Developments, Milliners Wharf and Spinningfields in Manchester, Project 141 in Glasgow,Maybird Shopping Park in Stratford-upon-Avon, Grosvenor House in Southampton, and the new National Express Coach Station in Birmingham. Focused on the property and construction industries, Acies manages a portfolio of work for key blue-chip companies including Hermes Property Asset Management, Standard Life, Premier Property Group, Laing O?Rourke, National Express, Hill Dickinson and Morley Fund Management.

Jeremy Powell senior partner for Acies commented: ?Acies is more than just a change of name. From the Latin meaning edge or sharpness, it reflects our commitment to being at the cutting edge of quality and innovation.

?We are also pleased to also announce our sponsorship of Steve and Lois which cements our long-term business plan to triple our turnover and increase our presence across the UK. We hold a great deal of experience and expertise and have worked on major schemes with major companies across Europe, ultimately the re-brand enables us to move forward as a business and further convey our company ethos.?

Founded in January 2004, Acies has increased its turnover to nearly ?3 million in less than four years. This growth has seen the business expand its premises in Chester and Edinburgh, and open an additional office in Manchester, more than doubling its workforce in the process.
