Scottish turnover up for Turner & Townsend

SCOTTISH turnover for construction consultants Turner & Townsend was in excess of £16 million in 2013-14.
Globally, turnover grew by 12% and operating profit by 13%. Global turnover exceeded a third of a billion GBP for the first time.
Turner & Townsend’s Principal Director for Cost Management in Scotland, Ronnie Dool, said, “Our Scottish operation had an impressive year of growth, with revenue rising by almost 15% and our headcount by almost 10%. We achieved this strong growth by focusing on delivering exceptional outcomes for our clients, investing in our capability and by strengthening our position across our three core sectors: property, infrastructure and natural resources.
“In the property sector, the past year saw us build on this established reputation to secure major commissions including Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, Tornagrain and Grandhome new towns, as well as The University of Aberdeen’s new Science Building.
“We were also delighted to see a number of our high profile projects complete over the last year, from the SSE Hydro and Glasgow School of Art Reid Building in the west of Scotland, to the new state of the art Visitor Centre at Bannockburn while we continue to work on a number of major programmes across the country.
“We still continue to command a position of strength in the market with current projects under construction such as office developments for Abstract in Aberdeen and Glasgow, the new Riverside East development for Clyde Gateway Developments in Dalmarnock, and Muse Development’s Marischal Square mixed use development in Aberdeen, to name but a few.”
