Currie & Brown set to oversee M&S growth

Scottish construction consultancy firm Currie & Brown has landed a deal to mastermind the expansion of retailer, Marks & Spencer.

A total of US $1.5 billion (£800 million) is being spent on the expansion plans.

Currie & Brown, which was founded in Glasgow 130 years ago and now operates in 50 countries, has reported a $28.7 million turnover in Scotland so far this year, up from $23.7 million the previous year.

Growth was due to an increase in the number of public private partnerships and the strengthening of key areas such as financial due diligence, client adviser roles on public finance initiatives, and regeneration projects.

Education and healthcare also emerged as particular growth sectors with a large pharmaceutical investment in the pipeline.

Currie & Brown employs 150 staff in Scotland, providing specialist services to the construction industry, including quantity surveying, cost and contract engineering, project and facilities management and fund monitoring for banks. Recent contract wins include RBS, Shell, BP, Primark and surveying for the $237 million regeneration of Glasgow’s City Dock.

The firm, which also has offices in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness, now ranks in the world’s top 10 construction consultancies and is involved in the redevelopment of the World Trade Centre site in New York as well as the rationalisation and modernisation of the BBC’s property portfolio in London.
