Merger completes for property consultancy firms

Kevin Jones, James OKeeffe (Emerald) and Ian Carey, James Peake (Pulse)

A full business merger has been completed following a successful joint venture between Birmingham’s Emerald Project Management and Nottingham’s property consultancy firm Pulse Consult.

After collaborating together over the last 18 months, the teams have delivered multiple client projects whilst expanding resources and services such as adding building surveys and health and safety compliance to their roster.

Moving forward with the next phase, the business will now operate fully as one, under the Pulse Consult banner, with directors Ian Carey, James Peake, James O’Keeffe and Kevin Jones at the helm.

James Peake, director at Pulse, added: “We have already been able to develop and expand our offering to clients, and the teams have worked brilliantly together, giving us the confidence to move forward with this merger. Both teams have supported with commissions and key clients, and with greater opportunities in the pipeline, Pulse is going from strength to strength.”

Emerald supplies professional consultancy to the world’s largest healthcare company across EMEA, developing its services outside of the core quantity surveying and project management services and to a wider range of sectors including hospitality, retail, manufacturing and automotive.

James O’Keeffe, director at Pulse and formerly of Emerald, said: “It is great to see this merger now confirmed, after such a positive 18 months together. It has given us all more opportunities to grow, develop careers, and expand the Pulse project portfolio. Both companies navigated the Covid-19 pandemic well, and since working together, I have seen how flexible the business has become. We have been able to discuss decisions and support each other with new challenges.”
