Hurley Palmer Flatt snaps up Andrew Reid

17 September 2014 

Mechanical and engineering consultants Hurley Palmer Flatt (HPF) has acquired a majority controlling share of engineering consultancy firm Andrew Reid & Partners (AR&P) for an undisclosed amount.

AR&P provides consultancy services in the design and commissioning of mechanical and electrical building service works. 

The company, which employs 30 staff and has an annual turnover in excess of £4 million, will continue to operate as an independent consultancy, operating as a subsidiary of HPF.

The AR&P board is to be chaired by Hurley Palmer Flatt group chairman Paul Flatt. Other changes include Mike O’Mahony’ appointment as managing director at AR&P, replacing David Lake who will continue as a consultant.

AR&P will continue to operate as an independent consultancy working alongside HPF, and will retain its current name. The practice will be a subsidiary of HPF Group. 

Flatt said: "Our investment in what is recognised as one of the leading commissioning management businesses is another step forward to allow our clients to independently commission and design buildings". 

O’Mahony said: "As clients’ buildings continue to become more complicated and with the ever growing need to reduce energy whilst ensuring buildings perform, our combined offer will allow clients to access world class engineers in both design and commissioning management."
