Cushman & Wakefield has appointed a new partner to its Scottish Project Management & Consultancy team to head up a new Building Engineering Services offering.
Alex McDonald, a Chartered Engineer, has extensive experience in M&E design, construction installation, facilities management and consultancy services. Based between the Glasgow and Edinburgh offices his remit will extend to the North of England.
Donald Reid, Head of Project Management & Consultancy in Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alex to the business. We are constantly investing to provide innovative solutions to our clients and the introduction of Building Engineering Services is a further expansion of this strategy.
“Alex will bring significant value to the advice we give to clients supporting strategic solutions for both investor and occupier clients. Our team is now 25 strong across Building Surveying, Project Management, Cost Consultancy and now the introduction of Building Engineering Services, and we continue to see the positive response of our clients to the rounded advice we are able to provide.”
Alex added: “The opportunity to shape the future of Building Engineering Services with Cushman & Wakefield is highly relevant to the future growth of the business both regionally and nationally. Building Services typically account for 30-40% of a building’s construction costs and can contribute 15-20% to the whole life costs depending on the complexity of the building. It is our intention to support our clients with the best all round portfolio of professional services available in the property sector.”
Stuart Dorward, Cushman & Wakefield’s Head of Scotland, said: “We are delighted to welcome someone with Alex’s wide ranging experience and track record to the business. He is an extremely talented individual and a great addition to the team.”
