Wardell Armstrong opens new office in central Glasgow
Wardell Armstrong has opened a new office in central Glasgow to support the growing success of business in Scotland. The move follows an expansion of our Edinburgh premises in September last year.
“We already handle a sizeable amount of work in and around Glasgow,” said Neil Sutherland, Wardell Armstrong’s regional director in Scotland. “Our new city centre office will bring us closer to our clients here and give us the right base from which to serve the west of the country. Glasgow is an exciting place to be, with a growing demand for many of the services we offer. These include helping with the development of difficult brownfield or constrained sites which may need remediation or a high degree of evidence to support the planning process.”
As a multi-disciplinary firm we provide a wide range of services from ground, civil and structural engineering to renewable energy, minerals and mining, and waste resource management and have in-house specialist teams in areas such as, geo-environmental engineering, planning, landscape architecture, environment & ecology and archaeology.
Our environmental and planning specialists helped to secure planning permission on behalf of waste management specialist Viridor for Glasgow City Council’s Polmadie recycling and renewable energy centre. Diverting over 90% of the city’s 200,000 tonnes of annual household waste from landfill, the plant is now saving around 90,000 tonnes of CO2 while recovering enough energy to power 22,000 homes and heat a further 8,000.
We have also been involved in helping develop wind farms of varying sizes recently, and are working with housing developers across Scotland. Our experts in ground stabilisation are also providing technical advice to support the upgrading of the M8 east of Glasgow, where the motorway overlies old coal mine workings.
The new Glasgow office is at 2 West Regent Street, Glasgow G2 1RW. Its day-to-day activities are run by Stephen Holmes, an associate director, with over 25 years of experience, including special expertise in civil engineering and residential infrastructure. We also expect to recruit new staff in the local area over the coming months.
