Opus International Consultants has relocated to larger premises on Talbot Road in Manchester.  The move supports Opus’ major recruitment drive to increase its staff by 25% as is looks to add 100 recruits to its 400-strong UK operations this year.

The business has been established in Manchester since 2000; initially to provide bridge engineering services on major Network Rail contracts. The office has since diversified to provide geotechnical, environmental and highway engineering services.

Opus has recently become a Civils Assessment (CAFA) Framework partner of Network Rail providing bridge assessment services in London North West route, in addition to a central pool of specialist support covering the UK. This commission extends until 2019.

Robin Atkinson, Manchester Office Director said; “ Our team and client base have expanded and we needed to find larger premises.  Nationally we are enjoying growth and it’s fantastic to have recently been recognised as a top 20 recruiter by New Civil Engineer magazine.”

“We are delighted with our new office space and think these new facilities will help us to attract more engineers to our business.”

Opus’ new location is 5th Floor, MacLaren House, Talbot Road, Manchester, M32 0FP.
