Leicester architect expands into Birmingham

rg+p’s Birmingham team (L-R) Kayleigh Huntley, James Burte-Carty, Lauren Raybould, Arron Iliffe, James Badley, Gemma Bartle and Kelly Tomlinson.

rg+p has launched its third studio in the heart of Birmingham’s business district.

The practice has taken space at 1 Newhall Street, the contemporary glazed fronted building located at the junction with Colmore Row. Initially, rg+p will offer architectural and QS/PM services from the new studio, with other disciplines set to be added later this year.

Architect, Lauren Raybould and senior QS/PM, Arron Iliffe will lead the Birmingham team.

“Birmingham has bold development plans and a vibrant business community which we’re excited to contribute to,” explains rg+p’s director, James Badley. “Opening in a third location had always been part of our long-term business plan and with more of our work originating in the West Midlands, Birmingham seemed a natural choice.

“We’ve spent the last 12 months getting to know the businesses, local authorities and organisations that are now our neighbours and look forward to building our portfolio across the region.”
