Robertson confirms senior civil engineering appointment

Bryan Glass

BRYAN Glass has been appointed executive director of Robertson’s civil engineering business.

Born and trained in New Zealand, he is a chartered civil engineer who was most recently an operations director of Laing O’Rourke’s infrastructure business, where he helped deliver projects including the second Severn crossing, Heathrow Terminal 2A, Manchester Metro and Manchester Terminal 2.

The move follows the latest major contract win for Robertson, as work continues on the Duntanlich Service Infrastructure project in Perthshire for MI SWACO.

Bryan Glass said, “I’m very pleased to join a business that has family principles at its heart – principles that have no doubt led Robertson to the leading position it holds across the UK’s built environment sector. I’m looking forward to working within the internal framework of the business and developing a project delivery team that will be respected throughout the civil engineering environment in Scotland.”

Derek Shewan, CEO of Robertson said, “Bryan has an impressive roster of experience and brings valuable skills to our civil engineering business as it continues to grow – which will be invaluable in the development of the business. Bryan will provide strategic and focused leadership to the business, enabling the Robertson Civil Engineering offering to progress on its journey to becoming recognised as a leading provider in the delivery of infrastructure projects throughout Scotland.”
