Kyoob prepares for future expansion
Building-services engineering consultancy Kyoob is moving to larger premises and creating a new graduate position just a year after launching. Based in North Tyneside, the consultancy was launched by Keith Armstrong, Ed Miley and Philip Oliver (pictured alongside from left to right).
Highlights of the first year included an M&E survey on part of the United Nations’ UNIDO building in Vienna, commissions from Durham & Darlington Fire & Rescue Authority on a programme of works to improve its estate and a research role with a leading food retailer to review its strategy for low-carbon stores.
Current projects include the Snakes & Ladders indoor adventure park at Syon Park in London, the Duke of Northumberland’s London home, and part of a new-build and refurbishment project for the Grimsby Institute of Performing Arts.
Philip Oliver has been appointed by CIBSE on a key project to produce a publication aimed at evaluating the energy performance of buildings at the design stage.
Looking ahead, Ed Miley says, ‘Whilst the climate remains tough and is unlikely to change much for the foreseeable future, we remain cautiously optimistic and look forward to steady but sustainable growth, especially as we are already benefiting from repeat business.’
