Edinburgh building and project consultancy makes double appointment

Paul Lafferty and Elaine McKail

PARAGON has announced the expansion of its Edinburgh team with two new appointments.

The building and project consultancy has brought in Paul Lafferty as an associate director. He was previously an associate director at Savills and is a chartered building surveyor specialising in commercial property.

Elaine McKail has been appointed to the role of office manager, having previously worked at a number of firms including Ernst & Young, DTZ, and Royal Bank of Scotland.

The new recruits join Paragon director and head of office, David Philip, and associate director, Jamie March, at the Edinburgh office which opened on George Street a year ago. The team provides services to clients including Aberdeen Standard Investments, Legal and General, Hudson Advisors and Oval Real Estate.

David Philip said, “It’s fantastic to end our first year in Edinburgh on a high with the appointment of two new team members. Paul’s knowledge of the Scottish commercial property market will be invaluable as we continue to provide clients with highly effective integrated services and advice, and Elaine will be instrumental in supporting the team at a time of rapid growth. We are delighted to welcome both to our team as we grow Paragon’s presence in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland.”
