Gibb abandons Nick Derbyshire name

GIBB HAS merged its transportation architecture subsidiary Nick Derbyshire Design Associates back into its main engineering business following the departure of NDDA managing director Nick Derbyshire last November (NCE 6 May 1997).

Gibb senior technical director Ian Peddie claimed the move was intended to provide clients with a one stop shop service of both engineering and architecture.

NDDA will now be known as the Architecture & Design Group and sit inside Gibbs transportation division. The new group will be managed by architect Ian Hurst, who joins from English Heritage.

Nick Derbyshire, who now runs his own company Nick Derbyshire Architects, formed NDDA after taking it over from British Rail in 1994. He was not surprised by the move but added: I suspect Gibb has changed the name to try to claim credit for work it was never involved in.
