Gladman Developments expand Scottish office

Gladman Developments has strengthened the team in its Scottish office with the appointment of two new project managers.

Colin Meharg and Alan Cunningham both join Gladman Developments' Livingston office from the Edinburgh office of Turner & Townsend Project Management.

Mr Meharg, 34, is a chartered building surveyor, with more than 12 years experience working in commercial property. Mr Cunningham, 35, is a chartered engineer, has worked in the construction industry in both contracting and consulting for the past 13 years.

Both will be responsible for managing Gladman Developments' industrial and office developments throughout Scotland from feasibility study through to completion.

The new appointments follow hard on the heels of Niall Burns joining Gladman Developments from Lambert Smith Hampton as a development manager, and takes the team based in Gladman's office in Livingston to six, with further appointments expected soon.

The UK's largest developer of speculative industrial and office schemes, Scotland is a major growth area for Gladman Developments. In October the company won planning permission for Abercrombie Court a 150,000 sq ft speculative office scheme, at Arnhall Business Park in Aberdeen. It also has planning permission for 71,760 sq ft of offices and 21,700 sq ft of industrial space at Ramparts Business Park in Berwick-upon-Tweed and owns sites for office developments in Livingston, Cumbernauld, Dunblane and Hillington.

Last month it launched Scotland's largest speculative industrial development, MAX at J4M8, which it sold to a US real estate fund earlier this year.

"Scotland represents one of Gladman's main focuses within the UK market, and we are looking to acquire sites for new developments throughout the country, in towns with a population of more than 15,000. Having both Colin and Alan on board will allow us to take on even more Scottish projects, so I am delighted they have joined our growing team," says Mr Limb.

"We have significant funds available to invest in land across the whole of Scotland, if we can find the right opportunities. We always pay introduction fees for sites and retain the introducing agent to market the development for us."
