Birmingham base

Expansion sees Glampitect set up camp in England

The firm is seeing increasing demand

Glampitect, the Edinburgh-based glamping site design consultancy, is to open its first office in England as part of ongoing expansion.

Increasing demand has prompted the firm to establish a base south of the Border, with the English operation located in Birmingham.

The move comes as the business celebrates its second anniversary, having been founded in 2019 by entrepreneur Calum MacLeod and his business partner Alisdair Young.

Mr MacLeod says having a presence in the West Midlands, just 100 miles from London, makes perfect sense for the business which continues to enjoy rapid growth since its formation.

Expanding: Calum MacLeod

“A bit like the glamping industry itself, we are growing at a remarkable rate and are currently involved in more than 400 projects throughout the UK,” said the chief executive.

“We are working with clients across the length and breadth of the country, and are doing everything from our head office in Edinburgh just now.

“The rapid growth wasn’t in our original business plan but it soon became clear that there was genuine scope to expand and we’re now seeing that come to fruition.

“It became evident that we would benefit from having another base, preferably in England. My focus has been on finding a suitable location in central or southern England and Birmingham is the ideal place.”
