Woods Hardwick is also in the throes of setting up a new structural engineering division, which will be headed up by director Simon Bennett who joined the company in May.
Calum Wilson, director at Woods Hardwick, said: “We’ve made the decision to significantly invest in our future and on increasing our design focus.
“We were getting more and more design-led work and so we needed to be able to service that demand.”
