Graham + Sibbald, the independent Scottish chartered surveyor, has recorded a series of reappointments as the property specialist looks to build on a record year of growth in 2019.
For City Property, Graham + Sibbald has been reappointed for a 5-year term under the Estates Professional Services Framework. Another reappointment is with VisitScotland, also under the Estates Professional Services Framework, where the firm has secured an additional 3-year term to assist the in-house team around operational property management and specialist property advice. Ferry operator CalMac has reappointed the firm for 3 years under the Professional Property Services Framework, while a similar reappointment and term of support has been secured with the Maritime Coastguard Agency.
In 2018, client wins included Scotland House in London and Brussels, Lothian Buses in Edinburgh and a major residential development at Ardersier on the Moray Forth. The firm has continued to benefit from activity related to the new Scottish business rates system in Scotland.
Calum Campbell, Graham + Sibbald’s Managing Partner said: “It’s credit to the multi-disciplined teams that the quality of their work to date has translated to a series of client reappointment over the last few months. The mix of assignments also points to how the firm continues to increase its work across the public sector, as well as the trust our public sector clients have in our ability to perform.”
Les McAndrew, Graham + Sibbald’s Senior Partner said: “The last couple of years have seen Graham + Sibbald move up a level on the Scottish property scene. At the heart of our success has been our people and we continue to invest in them to ensure we remain one of the go-to players in the sector.”
Last week, Graham + Sibbald held its annual Public Sector Conference in Glasgow which this year featured keynote speakers from Scottish legal firm Burness Paull and the Scottish Land Commission – covering themes including key changes to the planning system and the evolution of the community right to buy.
Graham + Sibbald has over 200 employees and 20 partners working across its 16 UK offices in Scotland and England where the Firm added Manchester to its growing office network South of the border.
