Fire engineering consultancy, OFR, has continued to progress its ambitious expansion during the past 12 months, despite the global challenges due to COVID.
The team is now 85-strong UK wide with a further ten plus people due to join in the coming months.
In total, 16 technical professionals including graduate fire engineers, associate directors and research associates have joined the team already, with a further three people joining in important business support positions.
The growth of the team reflects the business’ success in demonstrating its strategic vision to deliver high quality, technically led, tailored fire safety solutions on projects across the UK and around the world. Since its inception in Manchester in 2016, it has extended its reach UK wide with offices now in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Oxford, Bath and London.
New to the Leeds team are Leisha Marlow as fire engineering technician and Yong Jie Neo as graduate fire engineer.
Director Andy Passingham said: “As a business we have always been committed to investment into the profession – by providing opportunities for professionals within our industry.
“That is why, despite the challenges that we have encountered over the past year with remote working and working safely on site, we have achieved our growth objectives and have maintained a strong pipeline of projects. We welcome our new colleagues and look forward to making them a valued part of our team here at OFR.”
OFR Consultants is wholly owned by its internal shareholders; the team of people who lead and work within the business, which gives staff the opportunity to have an active role in the future of this growing consultancy, whilst enabling independence and flexibility to rapidly respond to the market.
