AHR has acquired award-winning architecture practice PCKO to strengthen its offer in delivering innovative residential and affordable housing projects and large scale masterplans.

AHR's London Office Acquires PCKO

The move will allow both companies to provide a better service for new and existing clients through shared resources, knowledge and experience. PCKO’s ethos and over 30 years’ experience in delivering attractive and innovative projects is a natural fit with AHR.

PCKO has an extensive residential portfolio and an existing client base. Their expertise, combined with AHR’s experience in large mixed-use schemes, transport related development and broad sector specialisms, will allow both to expand the work they are able to undertake.

Michael Walters, Managing Director at AHR London, said: “PCKO is a like-minded practice and from the first meeting, the team felt this will be a great move. The acquisition will not just allow AHR to grow quickly and bolster our capabilities in the residential sector, but we’ll be adding further creative and knowledgeable people to our practice that will enhance the projects we work on in the future. David de Sousa and Wai Lun Ho will join us as Directors and will be a positive addition to the leadership team.”

Andrew Ogorzalek, Director at PCKO, said: “This is a really exciting move for us. With our portfolio, track record and long established working relationships with our clients we feel we can make a strong contribution. AHR’s size and reputation will enable us to move to the next level and start competing for work on a larger scale.”

PCKO will continue to operate under its existing name as an AHR Company. All existing Directors and PCKO staff will be retained and move to AHR’s existing office in Clerkenwell
