A new Glasgow home & promotion for Craig Turner
Having spent more than three years as part of Civic Engineers’ Glasgow studio, Craig Turner has been promoted to associate director to help enable further growth of our Scottish presence.
Craig said, “I’m very pleased to be taking on this opportunity. Since joining in 2018, it’s been a fantastic journey and I’m excited to continue working on building and urban infrastructure projects that are innovative, sustainable and economically viable, that will help Scotland’s cities become healthier, more climate resilient places for people. I would like to say thank you to Isla Jackson for all of her support in recent years. I think we will make a great team going forwards and continue to move Civic Engineers in the right direction as the practice increases efforts to create sustainable, nature-based solutions for high profile developments across the breadth of the country.”
Director of the Glasgow studio, Isla Jackson, says: “It’s been fantastic to see the growth of Civic Engineers in Scotland over the last three years. With the retirement of our Glasgow Director Iain McIntyre last year, Craig is the right person to help us build into the future. We are taking on more innovative and ambitious projects and Craig has demonstrated a real vision for sustainable and future-proofed development.”
Since 2018, the Glasgow studio has doubled in size, from 10 people to 20 and recently relocated to a new studio on Virginia Street in the city centre. The new studio has been established in a repurposed retail space and will accommodate our expanded team while also being more public facing. The studio makes use of environmentally friendly air source heat pumps and provides facilities for the team so they can take advantage of active travel infrastructure.
Current projects the Glasgow team are working on include The Avenues and Custom House Quay in Glasgow; a social housing project at Upper Achintore in Fort William and an exciting residential project in Canonmills, Edinburgh.
