Appointments bolster team

Watts wins council surveys and audit deal

Andrew MurrayA firm of building surveyors, project managers and cost consultants is enjoying a strong start to 2016 after securing a significant contract with East Lothian Council.

The deal, generated by its Edinburgh office, will see Watts Group carry out condition surveys and disability audits on more than 200 council-run properties including schools, town halls, public parks, libraries and cemeteries.

Andrew Murray, director in charge of Watts Edinburgh, said: “The East Lothian council success is the perfect start to 2016. We are particularly pleased to have succeeded in the very demanding public procurement contract sector.”

Meanwhile, Watts’ growth strategy in Scotland has been bolstered by two appointments to the team in Edinburgh. Senior building surveyor Gordon Hamilton has moved from Aberdeen, while chartered building surveyor, Michael Wright, moves back to Scotland after a stint in London.

“We have a clear vision and strategy for the future and the appointments of Gordon and Michael will help us drive forward the brand and concentrate on future business development,” added Mr Murray.

Watts Group has offices in eight cities in the UK and was involved in preparing Hampden Stadium as a venue for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games in 2014.
