Graham + Sibbald Expand in Perthshire
Graham + Sibbald, the independent Scottish chartered surveyor and property specialist, is experiencing increased activity out of its Perth office and to meet client demand has recently extended their building surveying services across Perthshire and the surrounding area. The Perth office, opened in 1996, and now boasts building surveying services alongside an extensive range of key services including residential valuations and surveys, commercial valuation and agency. Graham + Sibbald’s headcount in Perth is now up to 7.
Tom Templeman, Graham + Sibbald’s Head of Building Surveying for the East of Scotland, will lead the new service line from the Perth office which includes Partners Keith Scobbie and Greg Davidson. Keith Scobbie said: “The Perth office is continuing to grow and develop in order to meet client demands in an ever-changing market and we’re excited to be extending our building surveying services in the region. To have Tom’s experience underpinning our new offering is great news for our team here and our clients.”
Tom Templeman said: “We’ve got a great team in place in Perth and there is undoubted potential to build workload across the region. What we can bring to the table is real know-how and experience around advising lenders, funds, investors and retained clients around the technical aspects of buying, selling and maintaining buildings and assets across a wide range of property types.”
Graham + Sibbald is on track for record revenues following a strong year of growth in 2018, with year-on-year revenues up by double digits through the final months of this financial year. The firm’s other city offices – including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Stirling, Inverness and Manchester – have all contributed to an overall increase in sales, supported by multiple lateral hires during the year. In March, Graham + Sibbald announced the promotion of five Associates to Director roles across the Central Belt as part of a strategic push to strengthen its leadership team in Scotland.
Client wins and appointments during 2018 include Scotland House in London and Brussels, Lothian Buses in Edinburgh and a major residential development at Ardersier on the Moray Forth, while the firm has continued to benefit from activity related to the new Scottish business rates system in Scotland. Graham + Sibbald relocated its Edinburgh office to 40 Torphichen Street in 2018 and has either relocated or redeveloped a number of its Scottish offices over the last twelve months.
Graham + Sibbald has over 200 employees and 20 partners working across its 16 UK offices in Scotland and England.
