Consultancy acquires architectural practice

A Sutton Coldfield-based architectural and engineering practice has been acquired by national multi-disciplinary consultancy Pegasus Group.

Armstrong Burton Group specialises in architecture from master planning to technical design as well as structural and civil engineering. Founded originally in 1960 the business evolved into ABG in 1996 with the group’s work focusing primarily on the residential and care sectors.

Derek Burton, Armstrong Burton owner, said: “I am pleased to announce that the Armstrong Burton Group has joined Pegasus Group in a coming together that presents a huge synergy and opportunity for us all.

“This is a very positive change to be welcomed as it secures the long-term future for Armstrong Burton. It presents a tremendous opportunity for the technical skills delivered by Armstrong Burton to fully complement Pegasus Group’s expertise in planning and design.”

Derek will stay on at ABG during the transition period before retiring to France.

Tony Bateman, managing director of Pegasus Group, said: “It is with great pleasure that I can confirm Pegasus Group has acquired Armstrong Burton. This is an exciting acquisition for us because it complements the growth we want to achieve in our architectural work into the future.

“Armstrong Burton will continue to operate as they do now from their existing premises, but as part of the Pegasus Group. All 33 ABG employees will be retained in the deal.”

Pegasus Group is recognised as one of the leading independent, national planning, design and environmental consultancies. With more than 320 skilled and experienced staff operating from 14 offices across the UK and Ireland, the company’s services span the entire project process from site finding, acquisition and planning through to design and delivery, specialising in planning, design, environment, economics and heritage.
