About Us

Fort Dunlop


The origins of Nicol Thomas can be traced back to late 1800’s when J. Coulson Nicol set up his practice in Birmingham City Centre.  Horton Estates was one of the practices main clients, being responsible for commissioning numerous prestigious City Centre developments. Salway Nicol joined his father in practice shortly after the First World War creating Nicol and Nicol.  By the mid 1930’s Wynne Thomas had become a partner and Nicol Thomas evolved. During the 1950’s and 1960’s the practice was responsible for many major hospitals.  During the 1970’s and 1980’s the workload diversified into social housing, industrial, commercial and retail. In 1987 Nicol Thomas was incorporated into Nicol Thomas Ltd.
