WYG develop new opportunities in Scotland

Multi-disciplinary consultancy WYG will host its annual client networking event on 3October 2013.  Paul Hamer, WYG Chief Executive will be joined by senior colleagues and clients at the bespoke event in Edinburgh.

The  event aims to help build awareness of the ‘hot’ topics within the industry, as well as provide an opportunity for clients and WYG people to meet and network with clients and other professionals working in the built environment.

WYG’s offices in Scotland have undergone a dramatic transformation in recent years with an increase in workload that has left many competitors standing.  From their central base in George Street, Edinburgh, WYG has been heavily involved in the renewables, retail, remediation and defence sectors in Scotland.  Projects including the Mid Hill Wind Farm, Lockerbie Data Centre, the review of MOD sites and numerous Sainsbury’s stores across the country that have seen WYG’s team in Scotland strengthen and expand. 

Gordon Buchan, Regional Director said: ‘We see Scotland as major area of growth in the private sector development, renewable, defence and redevelopment sectors and WYG looks forward to its continued growth in these markets and with our new partnership with specialist economic development and strategy consultancy, Upper Quartile LLP.’
