Six join company
WSP adds to team after £3m contract win
The professional services and engineering consultancy has secured a place on the renewal Scotland Excel Framework – the Centre of Procurement Expertise for local government.
The contract worth up to £3 million will provide work in development, environmental, project and commercial services, highways and civil, bridge and ground disciplines.
Bruce Donaldson, framework director at the company, said: “This is a great win for our Scottish business with an estimated fee value of £3 million and significant potential for downstream work.
“Being part of the framework also means we have a chance to give back, supporting communities across Scotland by providing 30 volunteering days for our staff to work on community projects and engaging young people through our apprenticeship programme.”
The company has appointed six staff to work across the company’s sectors, all of whom will be central to the work won through the new contract.
Julia Gilles, who was previously with global engineering company CH2M, and project director for Transport Scotland’s Development Planning & Management Advisor, joins as a director in the company’s development team.
Also joining the company’s Glasgow office in the environmental team is senior consultant Alex Wood and consultant Alyissa Glen.
In Edinburgh, Anna Buczkowska joins the building services team as a senior engineer while Craig Smith joins development as principal technician, and Paul Young as an associate.
