Resilience and confidence in the face of the pandemic have helped key sponsors in the Scottish Property Awards post a healthy increase in turnover, in their latest annual results.
PMP who specialize in building surveying, quantity surveying and project management, thanked their highly active client list in the last year as they reported a 10% increase on turnover to £3.7m.
The firm continues to invest in expanding services to clients by investing in new senior hires to its network of five offices including Manchester and Bristol. Joe Madden, Managing Director, PMP, commented;
“We’re pleased to have ended this year with having seen very little disruption in services to clients. Managing and caring for the health and well-being of our staff has been our focus and we have prioritized people over profits. We have delivered new support in wellbeing and mental health and have protected staff renumeration and benefits including delivering bonuses this year.
“Our active client list has helped to keep our team busy and while we reflect on a challenging year for everyone, we’re pleased to have ended this year in profit, with 100% staff retention, several staff promotions, and the opening our 5th office in Bristol.”
The board of directors have also highlighted the significant potential of the well-established Cost Management team and have recruited two new experienced professionals. David James joins the Glasgow office as Director and Jordan Smith returns to Scotland from London as Associate. Both will serve on the busy Quantity Surveying team which has secured several project wins in recent months, including Gleneagles Hotel and Glasgow University.
John Edwards, Lead Director of Cost Consultancy, added:
“The arrival of David and Jordan in Glasgow is an added boost at a time when we are seeing increasing volumes of cost consultancy work Both of them are respected names in the industry and join us with tremendous experience in delivering large commercial projects.”
The QS team is a significant part of the PMP success story having recorded double digit increase in turnover in each year since it started three years ago. In the last year, the team has secured three major Scottish projects totaling over £70m in construction value.
PMP’s investment in England continues to pay off with the newly created Bristol office reporting 90 new instructions since opening in December and 25 new clients. The team have inspected over 1.7msq.ft of commercial real estate and are currently managing projects valued at over £10m.
