a Dewsbury-based business that originally started out in a back bedroom is celebrating four decades of growth.
Martin Walsh Architectural, a family-run business launched in 1976, has been involved in more than 6,000 projects and has developed into one of the region’s leading architectural firms.
The company boasts an impressive portfolio of work that includes projects for clients including Leeds United, Sainsbury’s, Miller Homes, Shackletons, LNT Group and BOC Gas.
Martin Walsh, managing director, said: “When I started the business it was a one-man operation in my spare bedroom.
“Now, 40 years later, we have 12 team members who are delivering great results within residential, commercial, industrial, leisure and education sectors.
“We’ve experienced growth despite the challenges that our industry has faced and have maintained our team during the recession, which is without doubt based on our strong reputation and commitment to quality.
“In recent years we have continued to quietly, yet confidently grow our business, extending our footprint into the north of England and also into diverse sectors.”
To mark the occasion of the 40th anniversary, Martin Walsh Architectural has undergone a rebranding – including a revamped website.
Mr Walsh said: “To accommodate our team we’ve recently extended our offices by a third and are about to embark on an external façade overhaul to include new office entrance and signage to bring the look and feel in line with our new brand.”
