Wintech Expansion Continues
Wintech Façade Engineering are pleased to announce that due to continued growth and success, they have now obtained additional office space at their Wolverhampton Headquarters, acquiring Solutions House next door. The expansion of Wintech’s Headquarters underpins the continued growth of the business and underlines the Group’s commitment to building a market leading Façade Engineering Consultancy business across the UK.

Leading the company expansion Paul Savidge, Managing Director, explains “It is a really exciting time to be a part of the business as it enters a new phase of growth, the additional space we now have will allow us to grow the team which has been one of the key drivers for the past few years. We are building upon our current core strength of Façade Engineering, but also looking to prepare the business to assist with the nation’s net zero building transformation requirement. This includes sustainability, building energy advice for the mechanical and electrical systems in addition to the envelope which is of course the building’s primary energy modifier.
The Government has already committed to all new builds achieving net zero by 2030 and all existing buildings to achieve net zero by 2050. This incredible challenge to address embedded and operational carbon requires a radical change as to how we design for both new and significantly for the country’s existing building stock. Our new office accommodation in Wolverhampton will help us to accommodate the new employees required to support the nation in this transformation. In parallel to growing our core strengths, we are recruiting for our new business growth areas of Sustainability, Fire Engineering and Façade Access.
The expansion will create a further seventy highly skilled technical roles in the local area and further career opportunities for our existing staff. Wintech recognises that our strength lies in our people and are building our team of highly skilled technical experts to decarbonise the UK’s building stock. The building envelope and improving its thermal performance should be recognised as one of the critical elements necessary to control the energy consumption of our nation’s buildings.”
Founded in 1983, Wintech provides specialist Façade engineering Consultancy and Design Services as its core business. Having steadily expanded over a 40-year period, the group now employs more than one hundred people in a range of specialist sciences and disciplines, focused on the aesthetic, environmental and structural challenges crucial to the building envelope.
Chris Macey, Wintech’s CEO adds, “It’s our belief that the key to growth is primarily based on the skill set of our engineers and service and, as a quality-focused company, we are continually looking to develop and build on our offering to ensure we’re recognised as a market-leading firm in this specialised niche of the construction industry.”
Our expanded offices offer the right internal infrastructure and facilities to create a better environment for our future, people and gives us the capacity to grow as we look to fulfil our long-term expansion objectives.
