Architectural design and property consultants TMDP LLP has acquired one of Leicester’s oldest and best known chartered building and quantity surveying firms, Rose and Cooper.
Formerly known as The Martin Design Partnership, TMDP LLP has made the move in order to add to the comprehensive range of services already available within the consultancy and also bolster its busy quantity surveying division.
The announcement comes after TMDP’s relocation last month to larger premises in Ashby Magna, Lutterworth which has provided the space to expand the consultancy and increase the team by 30% over the next twelve months.
Scott Moore, Managing Partner TMDP LLP said: “These are exciting times for TMDP and we are delighted that we’ve been able to acquire Rose & Cooper just weeks after moving to our new head-quarters.

“As an extremely well established practice with a number of high profile clients, Rose & Cooper is the perfect addition to our growing consultancy. By bringing the firm under the TMDP umbrella we are now able to provide chartered building surveying services as part of the comprehensive package of property and construction solutions available to our clients.
“TMDP already works with a number of blue chip clients across several industry sectors including food and drink, residential, commercial, civil and industrial and with Rose & Cooper’s extensive experience within education and public sector organisations, we now have the in-house expertise to confidently expand our portfolio further.
Former managing director of Rose & Cooper, Robert Foster who will be employed to oversee the smooth transition said: “I am delighted with the acquisition and have no doubt that this is a positive move for Rose & Cooper and its clients. TMDP is one of the fastest growing and most innovative consultancies in the East Midlands and I am convinced that our established client base will be in safe hands.”
TMDP has seen turnover soar to £4m over the past two years and this, together with the continuation of a buoyant construction market has instilled the confidence to press ahead with planned expansion of the consultancy.
