NIXON has announced it has expanded its growth plans with the opening of an in-house civil and structural engineering team.

The Glasgow-based business was founded in 2012 as Nixon Consultants, and revealed it has expanded its operation as a quantity surveying and project management practice to a full development and construction firm complete with architectural services and civil and structural engineering capability.

NIXON has more than tripled its workforce in recent years to 20 and moved to new offices in Hydepark Street in Glasgow, with an additional office in Manchester.

The new engineering team will be led by director Craig Kempsell. He is joined by David D’Arcy and James Hunter, with the team overseeing the build of 32 residential apartments in Paisley, 64 apartments in Bishopbriggs, the redevelopment of a new BOHO Hotel in Dundee, and a new residential build of 27 apartments planned for Finlay Drive, in Glasgow’s Dennistoun.

The company has also secured contracts in England and will be leading the renovation of St Johns Hotel in Solihull.

Founder and managing director Richard McFadzean said, “NIXON has expanded its operation to meet the demand we are seeing. Our engineering team can maximise efficiencies for our clients by managing projects from the initial design through to completion and prevent clients from experiencing delays caused by value engineering.

“We’ve had a successful few years, however, we do not want to rest on our laurels and we will continue to diversify to meet our clients’ needs and to adapt to a constantly changing market. The engineering team is another division to add to our growing portfolio at NIXON.”
