Eddisons expands Sheffield office with new building and project consultancy division
Eddisons has appointed newly promoted associate director Curtis Bowles to head the new Sheffield building and project consultancy team at its South Yorkshire office, which was launched in the city in October last year.
Joining Eddisons in 2016 as a building surveyor, Curtis was promoted to associate director at the Leeds-headquartered firm this year and will now head a four-strong team of building and project consultancy colleagues who will make the move to Sheffield with him from Eddisons’ Leeds office.
He will be joined by surveyors Jack Cooper and James Hunston, as well as a soon-to-be-appointed year-out placement surveyor. Jack has been with Eddisons for seven years, initially starting as a placement student. Also joining is Caitlin Belshaw, an undergraduate building surveying student on her placement year in industry from Sheffield Hallam University.
Ian Harrington, who heads Eddisons’ growing building and project consultancy team nationally, said: “We’re really pleased to have such a talented and capable young team led by Curtis heading up our building and project consultancy operation in South Yorkshire. Eddisons are fully invested in recruiting and nurturing young people and enabling them to progress upwards within the business. It’s fantastic to see such talented people thrive and rise to new challenges.”
He added: “The Sheffield office is seeing an increase in business across the board, with particularly strong growth in the education sector in South Yorkshire and the Midlands. The important work we are doing with schools and colleges is helping them generate winning bids to secure Government funding for much-needed physical improvements to grounds and buildings.
“Activity from the Government’s procurement frameworks, Crown Commercial Services and public sector professional buying organisation ESPO, is also increasing as Eddisons’ reputation grows in this area.”
Eddisons’ Sheffield office is headed by Adrian Lunn and has grown to become a team of 17 since its launch last autumn.
