Wessex Archaeology’s Bristol-based office has moved to new premises in City Business Park on Easton Road, after experiencing sustained growth since locating to the city in 2014.
Andy King, Wessex Archaeology Regional Manager West, explains:
“The move marks a significant investment and gives us the space we need to continue expanding and diversifying in the region. We now have better IT, new furniture, more parking, storage, and working space and all the possibilities that so far have only been on a wish-list.
“Our office is closer to principal routes in and out of the City and has better public transport connections, including the renowned Bristol & Bath cycle trackway – a good incentive for us to adopt more sustainable ways of commuting.”
We opened our first Bristol office with just a single room at the Regus building, and the team has now grown to over 20 full-time employees servicing a large client-base across the south west region.
Chief Operating Officer, Caroline Budd:
“This marks an exciting new chapter for Wessex Archaeology in the south west. It’s not just the improved location and working environment for our staff; it’s also the opportunities to broaden our client-base and deliver a new and improved offering to our customers.”
Customers will benefit from an increased range of services, including community engagement and state-of-the-art digital recording and interpretation capabilities.
Wessex Archaeology is the UK’s leading archaeology and heritage company and an educational charity. We work in partnership with planners, designers, developers and property managers to deliver practical solutions to managing cultural heritage. The Bristol expansion follows the successful launch of the company’s European office in January and expansion into the US offshore market last year.
