Neil Poole, director of Poole and Pattle, said: “When the opportunity arose for us to join the team at KLH we knew it was the right move for us as a firm. They are a fantastic practice with a reputation of delivering high quality buildings throughout East Anglia and London.

“KLH have the same principles as us – being totally client-focused and delivering buildings and facilities that exceed the expectations of clients, stakeholders and users.”

This comes on the back of recent news of Bryan Wybrow’s promotion to director bringing the total to five directors.

Martyn Goodwin added: “This is an exciting time for the firm and we have experienced substantial growth.

“We are currently undertaking a major extension and renovation project on our offices to accommodate the growth and welcome the new team members.”
