“With the investment from FW Capital we are going to be able to source and train our unique team, one that will continue to support the evolution of the industry.”

Daniel Wade, Managing Director, Wade Construction Management Consultants

Wade Construction Management Consultants focussed on further growth after securing a six-figure investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

Wade Construction Management Consultants was launched in 2018 to remove the overspend risk that is associated with traditional methods of procurement. The business works with clients to produce an accurate costing projection, giving them a strategic and competitive advantage when tendering for projects.

The investment allowed the business to gear up for a big recruitment push to support its rapid growth in the pharmaceutical and life science industries. Plans were made to launch Wade Academy, which provided training and development to enhance the support provided to employees working in the construction sector - helping them to meet the industry standards of excellence. 

The Teesside-based construction management firm had enjoyed fast growth after recording a nearly threefold  increase in sales in the last two financial years and expanding its skilled workforce from four to 31 at over 11 UK sites.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
