Archial closes two offices
Rescued architectural firm Archial has shut two of its 16 offices – but insisted the move would not result in job losses.
The firm, which collapsed into administration last month before being picked up by Canadian business Ingenium, has merged its Ipswich and Bedford offices into a larger operation based at Cambridge.
It said it would move into new offices in the city by the end of the year, with staff working out of a temporary base in nearby Histon till then.
An Archial spokeswoman said the practice was still going through a consultation process with staff which it would complete in the coming weeks. “However, any new potential redundancies are not envisaged,” she added.
Last week Ingenium chief executive Victor Smith said there were no plans to make any more redundancies at the business.
