Firehaus, the brand consultancy, is moving to a new home in Bristol’s Engine Shed as its client base grows and develops. With new projects for the University of Bristol, UKRI and Radii Devices, the company is increasingly working with socially responsible businesses looking to scale. 

Described as a hub where businesses, entrepreneurs, academics, social innovators, and corporates collaborate, Engine Shed will see Firehaus working side-by-side with a range of the region’s innovators. 

The consultancy’s latest projects involve work on the University of Bristol’s commercial quantum offering and brand positioning to the industry. This follows on from work developing Bristol Grid, the innovative new platform for university-based start-ups and spin-outs. 

Meanwhile, work for the UKRI includes two new branding projects for Made Smarter Innovation research centres, accelerating the adoption of industrial digital technologies in the UK manufacturing sector. Previously Firehaus branded the Interact and Discribe initiatives for the UKRI, funded by Made Smarter and Digital Security by Design respectively. 

The consultancy is also working with innovative prosthetics technology business, Radii Devices, which is part of the SETsquared Bristol community. Firehaus has also supported other emerging South West-based tech businesses such as Tickitto and iLetpro, and continues to work globally with the leadership team of cycling brand Vittoria.   

Now in its third year, the consultancy is delivering double-digit growth over year two for both Revenue and Gross Profit. 

Ian Bates, Founder and Creative Partner commented: “The Engine Shed move is a reflection of the increasing amount of work we're doing with businesses ready to scale by igniting their brand with Light + Heat. It’s a really exciting space to be in, putting us at the beating heart of innovation in the region.”
