Bristol property consultancy Ridge celebrates 30 years in business

Ridge, the property and construction consultancy, is celebrating its 30-year anniversary in Bristol.

Since the office opened in 1988, the consultancy has grown to 32 employees and has worked on projects including the Airbus Aerospace Park in Filton, the design and build of the Knowle West Media Centre and the redevelopment of Hartwell House on Victoria Street.

Greg Aston, partner at Ridge, said: “We’re delighted to have reached this major milestone in Bristol, which is testament to both the buoyancy of the local property and construction market and the reputation we have carved out for ourselves over the last 30 years.

“We’re incredibly proud of the Bristol office and everything it’s achieved in the last 30 years and we look forward to seeing what the next 30 bring.”

The team’s longest-standing member of staff is surveyor Chris Brown, who’s been with the business in Bristol since its inception in 1988.

He said: “When I first started, we all had drawing boards as computer aided design software didn’t exist then.

"We only had one phone and one computer between us, and these were mainly for our secretary to use. Obviously technology has had a huge part to play in the evolution of the business but it’s still a great, people-focused company.”

As part of its 30-year celebrations, Ridge is sponsoring Portishead Cricket Club’s first Under-11s girls’ team which coincides with Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign.
