A “significant” contract win has cemented growth at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff. The professional services and engineering consultancy has secured a place on the renewal Scotland Excel Framework – the Centre of Procurement Expertise for local government.

The firm said the contract could potentially bring in around £3 million of work for WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff in Scotland across its development, environmental, project and commercial services, highways and civil, bridge and ground disciplines.

Bruce Donaldson, framework director at WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff said, “This is a great win for our Scottish business with an estimated fee value of £3 million and significant potential for downstream work. Our winning team offered the combined strength of both WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff and Mouchel, all bringing new experiences, perspectives and knowledge of the many different disciplines we currently work across. The tender award is definitely a success story for the integration of these two businesses.

 “Being part of the framework also means we have a chance to give back, supporting communities across Scotland by providing 30 volunteering days for our staff to work on community projects and engaging young people through our apprenticeship programme.”

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff has also appointed six new members of staff. Julia Gilles, who was previously with CH2M and project director for Transport Scotland’s development planning & management advisor, has joined as a director in the company’s development team. Also joining the company’s Glasgow office in the environmental team is senior consultant Alex Wood and consultant Alyissa Glen.

In Edinburgh, Anna Buczkowska joins the building services team as a senior engineer whilst Craig Smith joins development as principal technician, and Paul Young as an associate.
