Introduction to PM Group

PM Group Manchester Business unit is a 130 strong, multi-disciplined Engineering Design, Project & Construction Management business that works across a range of market sectors for a diverse mix of clients from SMEs to multinational, blue-chip companies. We are part of international project delivery specialists, PM Group, a 3,500+ employee owned company operating across Europe, Asia and the USA. Together with the wider PM Group business, we provide a comprehensive service offering delivered in a proactive and creative style.

PM Group’s Manchester Business Unit’s core market sectors include; Advanced Manufacturing & Technology, Chemical, Petrochemical, Energy & Environmental and Gas. These sectors are enhanced by the wider PM Group’s experience and service offering in the Pharmaceutical, Food, Mission Critical and Medical Technologies sectors.

Innovation and value engineering is intrinsic to what we do. In many cases, our clients experience can be limited to their own market sector. Working with us allows them access to efficient methods of project delivery and alternative process/technological solutions, which we have gained experience in through our work across our key market sectors.


Our core business involves all elements of the project lifecycle from project inception, (including feasibility studies, capital justifications, front-end engineering) right through the detailed design and construction phases, (including the delivery of full turnkey projects). Our extensive experience across a wide range of industries encourages the cross fertilisation of ideas and the adoption of best practice techniques. Some of our key clients include; Syngenta, Cargill, Croda, BP, Urenco, Johnson Matthey, Aggregate Industries,  National Grid, Cadent and Scotland Gas Networks.

The PM Group Manchester Business unit is widely acknowledged by our clients as one of the best design and delivery consultancies in the UK across our target markets. We have achieved this by investing in our people, systems and business processes. Over the years, our approach to doing business and to the delivery of projects has been recognised through a series of prominent awards. Some of the key differentiators that make us stand out from our competition include;

  • True Multi-discipline offering delivered from two strategically located offices, (Warrington and Edinburgh)
  • An innovative and collaborative approach to client relations and project execution
  • Project cost estimating and cost control expertise
  • Exemplary Health and Safety performance
  • Expert knowledge of UK legislative compliance requirements
  • Technology Agnostic approach
  • Market leading and industry recognised Anaerobic Digestion and Biogas experience
  • Award winning Biofuel Plant Design.

At PM Group, we pride ourselves on our straight forward, open and honest style which is at the heart of the way we do business. We have a ‘no politics’ culture where mutual trust and respect for each other’s skills and experience is paramount. We work in a collaborative yet challenging style that is focused on the project needs whilst sustaining the business benefits for both parties. We provide real value by focusing on our client relationships at all levels and through the investment of senior management time on each and every project.

As a project delivery business we put the highest emphasis on the Health, Safety and Environmental aspects of our service delivery. Our consistently high Health and Safety performance has been recognised by RoSPA through the award of our seventh Order of Distinction for achieving 21 consecutive gold awards. Our collaborative culture is based upon the European Construction Institute’s (ECI) ACTIVE Principles, who have recognised our achievements with numerous Contractor of the Year and Project of the Year ACTIVE Awards.

Our systems and processes underpin our operational effectiveness. Over the years we have developed a unique and robust Information Management System (IMS) that we use to both run our business and to execute projects on behalf of our clients. As well as being at the heart of our ISO 9001, 14001 and 45001 certifications, our IMS has been audited by a number of our blue-chip clients and has always been highly commended.

We operate from two offices in the UK, (Warrington and Edinburgh). Both offices provide a full range of Engineering Design and Project Management services across all of our market sectors.
