Expansion plans for Addison Hunt as firm celebrates six years of trading

Loughborough-based Chartered Quantity Surveyor and Project Management firm, Addison Hunt, has set its sights on further expansion following a highly successful six years of trading - achieving an impressive 200% increase in turnover in the last three years alone.

The company works across all levels of the construction industry on projects throughout the UK, providing cost advice and end to end project management services – ensuring projects meet the required quality standards, risk is minimised, and value for money is achieved.

Led by company directors Chris Hunt and Simon Collin, the business was set up by Chris in 2016 and in six years has grown to a team of eight professionals delivering multi-million pound projects, working with sub-contractors, contractors and developers.

Currently in the first quarter of a new financial year, Addison Hunt has secured a strong pipeline of work for 2022 - amounting to 50% of 2020/21.

This sustained growth is enabling the firm to recruit and as part of the team’s ambitious growth strategy, they hope to increase turnover by 30% in 2022. Currently, there is opportunity for two Intermediate Quantity Surveyors to join the team who will work across the developer and contractor client base.

Director Chris reflects on a positive three years for the firm:

“I am extremely proud of what the business has achieved to date, despite challenging times during the pandemic, Addison Hunt continues to grow – recruiting and training team members, and delivering a varied and diverse list of projects.

“We wanted to create a firm that would be seen by our clients as a trusted partner rather than a necessary consultant to deliver a project, and I feel that our success within the last three years has been real testament to this.

“As business owners, we want Addison Hunt to be known for quality of service and our returning clients showcase our commitment to this aim. Our ambition is to grow the team to 15 in the next few years, working out of our head office in Loughborough – the perfect base to serve the Midlands and UK wide.”

Notable projects completed by Addison Hunt include the Abbey Meadows residential development in Leicester - which forms part of Leicester’s waterside regeneration – comprising of 98 homes and saw the transformation of a redundant manufacturing site. The development was marked a finalist for the ‘ProCon Leicestershire’ awards 2020-2021.

Simon, who has 40 years’ experience in the sector, comments on current market conditions and his ambition for the future:

“The level of activity in the construction industry remains strong which is positive for all involved and we plan to harness this as part of our growth strategy. We have experienced considerable, organic growth which we are very proud of and as a team we are looking forward to what the future holds for Addison Hunt.

“Myself and Chris are big advocates of the industry and passionate about quantity surveying as a career – we are keen to invest in our workforce. We pride ourselves on being supportive and flexible employers, always available to support and provide guidance.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to our team and to our Clients who put their trust in us and return to us for their next projects.”
