TACE started from humble beginnings in 1996. The initial company set up was Portland Associates Consulting Engineers (PACE), quite simply because we started out venture on Portland Street, Manchester (who said M & E engineers have no flair).

The company moved premises to South Manchester and re-launched in June 2000 trading as TACE.

The practice was established with a policy to be operated as a co-operative with none of the typical hierarchy you see in traditional businesses. This led to everyone who joined the practice feeling like they were part of something unique.

A collaborative approach has been developed within TACE which all of our engineers utilise with all our clients.
