HQ move for BakerHicks

Design and engineering expert BakerHicks has opened its new headquarters in Warwick.

The company said its move from Stratford-upon-Avon to Warwick was prompted by the need for a new fit-for-purpose design space.

BakerHicks, formerly Morgan Sindall Professional Services, has recently opened new offices in Derby and Heathrow. It also has sites in London, Manchester.

The company’s roots can be traced back to 1957 and the formation of the IDC Group, which was founded by Howard Hicks and Sir John F Baker. The company was later acquired by Matthew Hall and then AMEC before becoming the consultancy arm of the Morgan Sindall Group in 2007.

Last year, as the business was celebrating its 60th anniversary, the company was rebranded BakerHicks.

Managing director Martin Lubieniecki said: “We’ve enjoyed good growth over recent years and with further expansion forecasted, the new headquarters will provide us with an excellent base from which we can continue this trend. As a company, we’re committed to investing in our staff so they can continue to invest in our clients.”
