Our History | From Padraig Arthur Associates to Chancery Group
We were Padraig Arthur & Associates … We Are Now Chancery Group
After 20 successful years in practice, and with a view to adapting to the challenges of the next 20 years, we opted to rebrand the practice from Padraig Arthur & Associates to Chancery Group in 2017, in consideration of the changing needs of our clients. The practice remains registered as “Padraig Arthur Limited” as originally established in 1997.
We set out in 1997 as a professional quantity surveying service, gradually, from 2003 onwards, evolved into project management, and more recently embarked on providing civil and structural engineering services. Whilst Project Management is considered a natural partnership to Quantity Surveying, Engineering Services is a specialised area. Our practice recognised, through repeated observations and respected client feedback over the years, that general Engineering services, as outlined, could be the third side of the triangle, completing the range of services that the practice would provide.
With an uptake in workload and enquiries, the route to procuring and selecting suitable and professionally qualified engineering staff commenced in 2015. Satisfied that the right team was in place and well settled in their roles, we formalised the rebranding in early 2017 to give the practice a broader platform from which to offer clients the three core services in an efficient and harmonious way.
Our three core services can be offered selectively or completely independent of each other. This principle recognises that many clients may already have an established relationship with one or more providers of the three core disciplines, with no need or desire to change.
Today’s clients are experiencing the reality of subdued post-recession opportunities, the negative impact of global issues, and a tightening in regulatory and compliance protocol. Our decision to emphasise our strong team culture, to offer certain key disciplines and a more efficient and comprehensive selection of services, and to bring greater structure and stability to project administration, is reflected in the new branding initiative. We are committed, as a team, to providing a dynamic, comprehensive and professional level of service to both established clients and prospective new clients for decades to come.
