Construction project management consultancy, RECOM Solutions, has moved to a new headquarters to accommodate its expanding team.

RECOM, which also acts as a main contractor, fire protection and cladding specialist, has relocated from Trafford Park to Salford Quays after acquiring a three-storey building on the Waters Edge Business Park.

The 4,000 sq ft building provides scope to expand RECOM’s team, which currently stands at a record high of 30 following recruitment.

The relocation is a return home for RECOM, having originally been based in Salford Quays until its 2020 move to Trafford Park.

Chartered surveyors, Fletcher Bond, worked with RECOM to find its new premises, which is now undergoing a fit-out

The ground floor will feature a reception area, showers and changing facilities and three meeting rooms. On the first floor will be breakout areas and RECOM’s new fire protection training academy.

The academy will be a live environment for training in the latest industry measures, legislation and new products, as well as being a showcase for this specialism to its nationwide client base, in the residential, care home, healthcare, commercial, leisure, education, heritage buildings and industrial sectors.

The second floor of the new HQ on Modwen Road will house office space and the firm’s accounts department.

RECOM was founded in 2015 by directors Jason McKnight and Joseph Dillon. Clients include Barry’s Bootcamp, Pot Kettle Black, Urban Village Bars, WUKPG, Arrowsmith Investments, The Derwent Group, Fletcher Bond, the University of Manchester and the NHS.

Jason McKnight said: “It is the right time to buy a permanent home for the business, and the new premises gives us the scope for further growth in the team across our passive fire protection division and our other services, including our construction offering.

“This investment shows our willingness to retain a firm foothold in Manchester and to attract the best possible talent within our sectors. We are currently going through a period of growth and need the best facilities we can provide for our expanding team.”
