Stuart Pattison

ARC-Tech (Scotland) has appointed Stuart Pattison as estimating director.

The Glasgow-based building services contractor revealed that Stuart first joined the firm as senior electrical estimator upon its formation in 2016 and now, having re-united with the company this winter, has assumed the newly created role.

Overseeing the estimating department, he will support the creation and submission of tenders as well as undertaking a business development function to generate business growth with new and existing clients.

Stuart said, “I am honoured to have returned to Arc-Tech (Scotland) as estimating director. The business has grown exponentially over the last five years and is now recognised as one of the country’s leading building services contractors so to have been given this opportunity is an incredibly exciting prospect. I thank the board of directors for their show of support and look forward to working with my colleagues and clients.”

Arc-Tech (Scotland) MD, John Gallacher, added, “On behalf of the board of directors, I am delighted to welcome Stuart back to Arc-Tech. He will have seen a notable change in our business since 2016 as a result of our work with some of the country’s biggest contractors. Our annual turnover now exceeds £19 million and our skilled workforce, which includes burgeoning training and apprenticeship programmes, reaching over 120.

“The Scottish construction industry is set to undergo significant, transformational change unlike that seen in our lifetime as we move towards becoming a ‘net zero’ economy. Building services will have a crucial part to play and so it is very important for Arc-Tech to have a well-balanced, skilled workforce so that we can be responsive to new market conditions as well as providing industry-leading customer service for our clients. Stuart’s 30 years of experience will be invaluable in this regard and I am of no doubt he will positively support our immediate and long-term business goals.”
