Leading architectural practice Stephen George & Partners joins CILT as corporate member

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) is pleased to announce that leading architectural practice, Stephen George & Partners, has joined the Institute as a Platinum Corporate Member.

Founded in 1970, Stephen George & Partners LLP has established itself as one of the UK’s leading architectural practices with offices in London, Leicester, Leeds and Solihull. The Practice is placed in the ‘AJ120’ list of the largest UK practices by the Architects’ Journal and has been included in the ‘Best 100 Companies to work for’ listing in The Sunday Times. Success in the UK has led to opportunities overseas and has resulted in the establishment of Stephen George International (SGI) in 2009 where the practice has offices in Sofia and Salalah, Oman.

Stephen George & Partners has extensive experience within both the private and public sectors and is consistently the top UK practice operating within the distribution sector (source: Barbour ABI Economic & Construction Market Review). The Practice’s portfolio includes more than 150 live distribution and industrial projects ranging from SME units to single buildings in excess of 93,000sq.m. (1million sq.ft) to the masterplanning of a new industrial quarter or logistics park.

James Nicholls, Partner, Stephen & George Partners, said:

“We are delighted to join the UK’s leading logistics and transport professional body. The logistics industry is our leading sector of operation and we are working on a number of major distribution centre projects. We look forward to working with the Institute to develop our networking opportunities and knowledge of this fast-growing sector.”

“Stephens George & Partners is the first architectural firm to join CILT as a Corporate Member and we are thrilled to have them on board. In this ever-growing industry we want to make sure that the organisations within our corporate membership roster represent the diversity of the logistics and transport industry and I am therefore delighted to welcome Stephens George & Partners to the Institute.”
