Local Government, Housing and Planning Minister Kevin Stewart SNP, visited the site of the new health & care centre in Greenock last week. The site showcases how a collaboration of multiple parties can work together to meet client expectations and ensure the construction of a fully compliant building.
Thomas & Adamsonwere appointed in January 2019 by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde to undertake the role of Board Site Monitor for the construction of the new health & care facilities and mental health wards, in Greenock, Stobhill and Clydebank. The role of Board site Monitor was created in response to the findings of the ‘Report of independent Inquiry into the construction of Edinburgh schools’ (the Cole report) in 2017. The report identified the importance of the independent scrutiny within the construction process.

Leading construction and property consultancy, Thomas & Adamson has appointed Vincent James to the newly created role of Business Development Director.

James, who will be based in the company’s Haymarket office in London, is responsible for raising the profile of the South East team with both public bodies and private sector developers.

James began his career as a quantity surveyor, before moving into business development with John Laing Construction more than two decades ago. Since then he has held business development roles with several major construction companies including Gleeson, ISG Group and Kier Construction.

Most recently, he was Company New Business Manager at Willmott Dixon Construction, responsible for identifying and securing project opportunities, as well as key account manager for several blue-chip developers including British Land, Oxford Properties, Derwent London, Frogmore and Landsec

The move follows Thomas & Adamson’s senior partner, Alastair Wallace, being named as one of three new board members of RICS Scotland earlier this month. As head of the 160-strong business, which has offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Portland, Kyiv, and London, Alastair will provide market insight and intelligence to enhance the recognition and profile of RICS throughout Scotland as well as to enhance local member engagement.

The company, which has secured significant contracts with blue chip developers in recent months, also leads vital monitoring work at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant in Northern Ukraine for the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The £2bn project is set to be handed over to the EBRD later this year.

Alastair Wallace, senior partner at Thomas & Adamson, and RICS Scotland board members, said:

“Vincent is joining the company following a sustained period of growth and will be crucial in our expansion in and around the capital. Whilst our heartland is north of the border, our goal is to see the South East arm double its income over the next five years, and Vincent will play a key role in delivering this increased turnover.

“His strong track record of delivering meaningful growth, through strategic planning, will be a fantastic addition to an already strong and effective team.”

Following the opening of Boroughmuir High School in February 2018, where Thomas & Adamson provided a range of consultancy services, we are delighted to advise our appointment to the roles of project manager, contract administrator and principal designer for the schools extension project, which was granted planning consent last week.
The new phase will consist of 12 additional classrooms over 3 floors, plus flexible study space. The new space will accommodate an additional 300 pupils by 2021 and form part of the redevelopment project of Edinburgh Fountainbridge area.

Thomas & Adamson has completed work on a three-year project at the heart of the city’s historic Lanes quarter.

The international construction and property consultancy led the delivery of this unique development, providing project management and quantity surveying services on behalf of their Client, Redevco.

Following a lengthy and complex planning process, including demolition of the listed Timpson’s building and preservation of Puget’s Cottage, one of the oldest houses in the city which pre-dates Brighton’s development as a seaside resort, the new ‘Hanningtons Lane’ recently opened to the public.

The mixed-use regeneration scheme, creating a new and vibrant shopping and dining quarter, blends the character and history of the Lanes with the needs of modern retailers and features 15 new boutique shops and a glamorous new dining experience from the renowned Brighton Gingerman Restaurant Group, alongside residential and office accommodation. Shopfronts have been individually designed, with the elevation and colour of each providing a completely immersive visual environment.

Natasha Kravchuk, Director at Thomas & Adamson commented: “Hanningtons Lane was one of the most challenging but rewarding projects to work on as the Lanes are a much-loved part of Brighton and we wanted to be sympathetic to the architectural heritage as well as injecting a modern feel into the development. It’s been a privilege to work on this ‘one of a kind’ project along with Redevco, Westridge and Morgan Carn and to help deliver such an ambitious vision and further add to Brighton’s rich cultural heritage. The response from local people and businesses to the new Lane, and the improvements made to stores on North Street, has been incredible”

The latest tenant signing, Hotel Chocolat will soon open their doors at 19 North Street and join other high-profile retailers including, Habitat, Watches of Switzerland, Oliver Bonas and the local ice cream company, Brass Monkey.

The Lanes is one of Brighton’s most iconic and popular tourist destinations, attracting 8 million annual visitors.

Thomas & Adamson has UK offices in London, Glasgow and Edinburgh, as well as global presence in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kyiv and in the United States.
