Hardies adds to senior team with new head of principal designer services
HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants has announced the appointment of Ewan Wyllie as head of principal designer services.
Mr Wyllie has worked in construction health and safety for over 18 years with a track record spanning a variety of sectors, project size and complexity.
An advocate of early appointment of the principal designer to ensure CDM Regulations can be integrated in a design without compromising the aesthetics, Hardies explained that he has a strong technical background and is a chartered building surveyor with 19 years post qualified experience.
Earlier in his career, Mr Wyllie was principal building surveyor for Hardies’ sister firm Shepherd Chartered Surveyors in its Glasgow office, before going on to work as a senior associate at Hollis and then head of CDM consultancy at Michael Laird Architects.
“The chief attraction for me in joining Hardies was the opportunity to apply the expertise and experience I’ve gained in CDM services to help grow that offering in line with the company’s growth plan over the next five years,” Ewan Wylie said. “With responsibility for the management of that service nationally, my remit is to grow the team and build a nationwide network of principal designers and I’ve found a real synergy with Hardies’ management team, which shares the same mindset and all of whom are very passionate about what they do.”
Hardies’ senior partner, Danny McArthur, added, “We are delighted to secure Ewan for this key management position in this, our 110th anniversary year. His strategic business brain, growth mindset, enthusiasm and cultural fit make him the ideal head of principal designer services to drive this aspect of our business forward throughout the UK.
“Indeed, following Ewan’s appointment we are already actively seeking to fill three principal designers – one each in Aberdeen, Edinburgh, and Leeds – to bolster our CDM service offering in these cities and beyond.”
