Fore Consulting invests in Leeds

Fore Consulting has moved to a new office in central Leeds as it continues to grow its headcount and gets set to turnover £1.25m in 2016.

The transport planning firm has taken 1,130 sq ft of high-quality office space at 34 Wellington Street in the heart of the city’s professional quarter, paying £19 per sq ft on a five-year lease.

The company works with a wide range of public and private organisations to solve transport problems, deliver schemes and achieve planning consents.

Paul Irwin of Fore Consulting said: “Since our launch five years ago, Fore has focused on the transport and development planning market which has seen the business grow significantly.

“The team has expanded to 18 staff, with offices in both Leeds and Newcastle, where we have established a team of three professionals.

“In 2016, Fore’s turnover is likely to exceed £1.25m and the recent addition of Infrastructure services will help to continue to drive the business forward and deliver some of the recent planning successes on the ground.

“Our recent move to Queens House in Leeds is due to this growth, having outgrown our previous space at offices in nearby Queen Street.”

The Leeds office of Knight Frank advised Fore on the move, which also has a second office in Newcastle.
