“This acquisition marks another important step within our strategy to develop a comprehensive range of management services within WYG. Trench Farrow provides a new dimension to the WYG project management capability. It adds specialist expertise in the corporate fit out and urban regeneration markets which complements and consolidates our existing project management portfolio in the private and public sector development markets.”

“We have been conscious for some time of the constraints imposed by our size and location on the ability to build on our excellent reputation in the niche markets we serve. We believe that joining WYG will enable us to develop our expertise into new service and geographical areas without sacrificing the personal and proactive service which our clients have come to expect.”
