We are delighted to announce the formation of a strategic partnership between Purcell and PCPT Architects. This new chapter will see the two practices collaborating to deliver exceptional architecture, masterplanning and heritage consultancy services across the Midlands and beyond.

New Standard Works, Birmingham

PCPT and Purcell are long-established practices, having been in operation for a combined 136 years, and we both pride ourselves on our shared people-first ethos. PCPT are very much engrained in the local community, a model we replicate with our regional offices throughout the UK.

We strongly believe in empowering and championing our employees, our clients and the communities we work in and help to shape. Our values and portfolios of work are closely aligned , providing the foundations for a successful future partnership.

Not only does this partnership bring the Purcell flair to Birmingham, it also represents an important strategic milestone for strengthening our geographical presence across the UK. With notable Birmingham projects already under our team’s belt – including Highbury Hall and New Standard Works – forging this partnership is the exciting next step in developing our collective work with historic places and spaces across the Midlands.

Purcell worked with the Ruskin Mill Trust to regenerate this Grade II listed former Victorian factory into a functioning college, café and bakery.

With this partnership PCPT will be able to draw upon Purcell’s resources and depth of people expertise, enabling us to help deliver many of the exciting regeneration plans across Birmingham and throughout the Midlands.

With this local presence, Purcell will be able to extend the reach of our renowned heritage consultancy services and large-scale conservation expertises. This new collaboration will enable both partners to play to their respective strengths to better serve the vibrant and cosmopolitan communities across the region.

We are excited about the long-term potential this collaboration will bring about for our clients new and existing and for our two practices. Here’s to the next chapter!
