Senior Appointments to Drive Growth at RLF in Scotland

Construction and property consultancy RLF has marked a further year of rapid growth in Scotland by announcing a number of senior appointments and announcing a clutch of new project wins with a capital value of more than 250m.

Dorothy Robertson, who is based in the firm's Glasgow office, has been appointed Partner effective from 1st June, and Ron Smith, also based in Glasgow, has joined as an Associate. Dorothy Robertson, who has been with the company for over 10 years will play a substantial role in business management as well as continuing to work with key clients of the firm. Ron Smith, who joined from E C Harris brings with him considerable specialist technical expertise in quantity surveying in both public and private sectors.

RLF, which recently opened a new office in Edinburgh, has seen turnover in Scotland double during the last year and combined with projected growth in both centres, anticipates tripling the size of the business within the next three years.

The new appointments will help to drive RLF's growth strategy in Scotland, and the firm is also actively recruiting for Quantity Surveyors, Project Managers and Building Surveyors at all levels across the business.

Recent project wins include school redevelopment plans for Glasgow, Dundee and Lothian Councils; station redevelopment project for Cowlairs, the construction of a learning disability centre in South Lanarkshire; new office developments in Glasgow, Dundee and Edinburgh and a major new leisure development near Edinburgh.

"It has been a year of good progress for RLF in Scotland" said Managing Partner in Scotland, David Thomson.

"I am delighted that Dorothy has been promoted to Partner and Ron has joined as Associate. They are key members of our expanding team and will play a central role in the future development of the business.

"The market in Scotland is highly competitive but there is clearly a demand for an entrepreneurial firm such as RLF who are able to provide a regional service to clients that is backed by national strength and expertise."
