ANGUS Macdonald has been appointed associate director at construction and property consultants Summers-Inman.
Based at the firm’s new Scottish HQ in Edinburgh, he returns to the company having previously worked for the business from 2014 to 2018.
Angus Macdonald, who was born in Stornoway, has spent the past three years at consultancy firm Arcadis. He will be tasked with managing Summers-Inman’s cost consultancy services in Scotland. This will include the management of services on the Wheatley Group technical consultancy framework, Hanover (Scotland) Housing Association framework for professional services, Kingdom Housing Association consultancy services framework and The Royal Bank of Scotland development monitoring surveyor’s supplier panel, including other public and private sector clients.
“It’s an exciting time to be re-joining Summers-Inman,” he revealed. “There is a lot of positivity around the company just now despite the challenges the country has faced. It’s a good fit for me and it feels good to be back. I know a lot of the people and how the business works and it was a familiar, friendly environment to come back into.
“There are a lot of plans to take the company forward in Scotland and I’m looking forward to being involved. We are in a good position with the client base we have and it’s a case of consolidating and using that base to take things forward with better times hopefully ahead.”
Regional MD, Aynsley Cheatley, added, “We are delighted to welcome Angus back to Summers-Inman. Having worked with Angus previously, for almost four years, we very much look forward to working with him again. Angus is recognised in the local industry as being a first-class quantity surveyor and there is no one better placed to lead our teams, providing services on framework contracts and to other long-term established clients.”
Summers-Inman has also welcomed Claire Green to its Scottish team in Edinburgh as assistant quantity surveyor. She joins from Thomas & Adamson where she worked for seven years. She is currently in her third year of a BSc (Hons) construction & built environment – quantity surveying degree at Edinburgh Napier University as a graduate apprentice and is also working through the RICS APC process.
“This is a good step in my career and I’m involved in a lot of exciting projects, particularly in the residential sector,” Claire Green said. “The guys here have been very supportive and I’m really looking forward to getting more exposure to the industry.”
Aynsley Cheatley commented, “Claire is a fantastic addition to our team. In the short time that she has worked for us she has already proved to be an excellent quantity surveyor and is adding significant value to the projects she is working on. We thoroughly look forward to working with Claire as she progresses her career with Summers-Inman.”
