International construction and property consultancy, Thomas and Adamson, has appointed Zander Muego to head up the company’s growing Project Management and Building Surveying Division in Scotland.

Muego joins from the firm’s UAE operation, having successfully led the business in the Middle East as Partner in Charge for nine years. With over 18 years’ experience in the construction industry, he has spearheaded a wide range of projects from the provision of strategic advisory services to Abu Dhabi government agencies, to delivering cost consultancy services on major mixed use developments for some of the region’s leading commercial developers.

With an existing high-profile roster of projects for a range of blue-chip companies, his new role will focus on developing the fast-expanding Scottish Project Management and Building Surveying division, whilst targeting new markets and opportunities.

Alastair Wallace, Senior Partner of Thomas and Adamson, said: “Zander has been instrumental in the successful growth of our UAE business over the past eight years and we are delighted he will now lead our Scottish PM and BS division. He has proved to be a real asset to the business throughout his career with us, and his recent promotion to Partner is not only well-deserved by him on a personal level, but for the company. We are thrilled to have him back in the UK and look forward to building and enhancing our service.”

Zander Muego added: “Our Project Management and Building Surveying disciplines have experienced strong growth in recent years. This has been underpinned by high levels of repeat business that our experienced and talented team of professionals have been achieving on a consistent basis. We have been involved in some significant projects throughout the country, and the scale of opportunities we are forecasting are second to none.

“I’m fortunate to join a strong senior team that I’ve seen grow and expand alongside my own development, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them. I look forward to building and enhancing this team, and to help take the disciplines to the next level – to firmly position Thomas & Adamson as the market leader.”

The team will begin immediate work on a string of new contract wins, including redevelopment of Meadowbank stadium, Shawfair village, India Buildings Virgin Hotel, New River Retail, to name a few.
