SOCOTEC Opens London Hub
SOCOTEC, the UK’s leading provider of testing, inspection and certification services, has opened a new flagship office in Lincoln’s Inn Fields, Central London.
SOCOTEC’s Building Control, Fire Safety and Fire Engineering teams, along with Base Quantum, who this week rebranded as SOCOTEC Advisory, will occupy the office. The new London hub will bring together SOCOTEC’s professional services expertise under one roof and will further enhance SOCOTEC’s unique ability to offer clients consulting, expert witness and technical expertise, across all of the value chain.
The office offers a modern, collaborative workspace for more than 100 employees, along with 4 meeting rooms, training space and boardroom.
Nicolas Detchepare, CEO, SOCOTEC UK said: “The primary aim was to bring together all of our professional expertise in a central London location. Lincoln’s Inn Fields, with a mix of barristers’ chambers, commercial premises and collegiate property, is the perfect location to bring together our teams and help foster a culture of entrepreneurship and collaboration. The move provides the opportunity for us establish technical and commercial synergies between our different divisions as well as improving commercial visibility of the SOCOTEC brand in London and the South East. The addition of a Central London base to our property portfolio offers the perfect location from which to engage with clients, promote new activities, such as Building Envelope Consultancy and deliver internal and external training.
“I am delighted with the move, which further strengthens the SOCOTEC brand in the UK and our leading position within our industry.”
