Pulse said the deal would strengthen its offering to the West Midlands and South West regions.  

Tandem director, Graham Black, joins the board of directors just as Pulse reported a 22 per cent increase in turnover for the last financial year. 

The entire Tandem office has been retained and will join Pulse’s Birmingham team in the Colmore Business District. 

Black said: “It’s people that define a business and build projects – by listening, collaborating and supporting each other to get the job done. So, when we were considering what next for Tandem, we were always going to have the best interests of our team and clients at the heart of our decision making.”  

He added: “We’re excited to become part of the Pulse journey and strengthen its existing team so we can deliver even more value for our clients and people.” 

Pulse also has offices in London, Bristol, Leicester and Nottingham. 

Established in 2012, Tandem, in Warwickshire, offers site surveying as well as project management services to the construction industry.  

Pulse MD, Ian Carey, said: “Having witnessed first-hand how the Tandem team collaborate with each other and their clients, it’s clear that we share the same ethos.  

“Not only does their offering complement our own but, more importantly, our values are aligned too. 

“We’re delighted to welcome Graham and his team to Pulse where, together, we’ll be able to offer even more opportunities for our clients and people.”
