Division will target residential and commercial work

Scott Brownrigg’s Broadstone Bar and Kitchen

Scott Brownrigg has set up a new US arm in partnership with a local practice.

The firm will operate in the US and South and Central America under the newly created entity, SB&C Architecture.

The move formalises an existing partnership between Scott Brownrigg and New York firm Crown Architecture and Consulting.

The pair bid a scheme on the city’s Park Avenue last year and have carried out work turning a dilapidated site in Manhattan’s financial district, destroyed by 2012’s Hurricane Sandy, into a hospitality venue known as the Broadstone Bar and Kitchen.

Darren Comber, chief executive of Scott Brownrigg, said: “The creation of SB&C Architecture builds on our positive partnership with Crown Architecture and our long-term strategy for growth in the US market.”

Target markets for SB&C Architecture will include residential and commercial developments.
