A South East building consultancy has opened a new office in Birmingham's business district.
Propitas is a commercial building surveying and project management practice established in 2007 by Lori Clarke and Elliott Dawson.
Birmingham is the firm's third office, having built up a presence in the South East through their London and Crawley bases.
It has taken 830 sq ft on a five-year term in 75-77 Colmore Row.
Equity partner and head of Propitas' Birmingham office Chris Hodgson said: "We are delighted to have secured space in such a prominent location in Birmingham.
"We have only had a physical presence in the region for 11 months so this deal represents a significant statement of intent for Propitas.
"We have recently recruited a new associate to meet the increase in demand for our commercial building surveying and project management services so this space gives us the perfect platform to grow the business."
Ian Clark, senior asset manager at Real Estate Investors which owns the building, added: "REI has been using Propitas on a number of schemes and we look forward to building on our relationship with them as neighbours now."
Law firm Mundays acted on behalf of Propitas and CBTC Millichips in West Bromwich advised Real Estate Investors.
