“I’ve been working with AEW for nearly six years now, predominantly in the industrial and employment sector. We’ve worked on three projects – Meridian 6, Wigan / Valley Road, Birkenhead and Stoke. With over 625,000 sqft of new floor space proposed, Meridian 6 is the largest of the three and has been over five years in the making. My experience of working with the AEW team has been excellent, they’re one of our ‘go to’ architects in the North West for design work in this sector.”Dan Symonds Development Manager (Glenbrook)
