Murphy Surveys is pleased to announce that due to unpreceded growth, it will continue to expand its footprint in the UK with a new office and team based in the new Blackbox development in Wilmslow, near Manchester in Cheshire.

“Manchester is a key geographical hub for us,” commented Colin Murphy, Director Murphy Surveys. “There are a number of large infrastructure projects taking place across Northern England from Manchester and Liverpool to Leeds and Sheffield. Having our office and team based in this centre reaffirms our ongoing commitment to support and add value to our clients in the area.”

As part of this expansion we’re also pleased to announce the appointment of Chris Heap as Sales Account Manager for Manchester. Chris has 10 years’ experience in 3D data capture including laser scanning and digital photogrammetry and has spent 6 years in the oil and gas industry working globally to create 3D asset management models for owner operators. More recently Chris worked as department lead for Hobs Studio’s digital construction department. Chris will be based in the new Wilmslow office.

“From our humble beginnings in Ireland and with a history spanning 4 decades, we are now an international survey consultancy employing over 220 people. There is no doubt that at the heart of this growth has been our trusted, loyal and experienced staff. We are committed to investing in the development of our teams and continually looking for talented survey professionals to join the Murphy Surveys family. With some of the largest projects in Europe on our doorstep, it’s certainly an exciting time to be part of our survey community.”

The office is based on Beech Lane, Wilmslow in the new Blackbox building by Orbit Developments.
