We have strengthened our North West building consultancy team with the appointment of Tim Aitchison and Gary Allen as directors at our Manchester office.
Prior to joining Gateley Vinden, Tim headed up the building consultancy team at Cushman & Wakefield for six years and also spent a total of 15 years in senior roles at Jones Lang LaSalle. Tim, a chartered building surveyor, is experienced in a wide variety of building surveying instructions including category A and B fit outs and refurbishments, dilapidations, pre-acquisition surveys and technical due diligence, as well as full project management. In his role as director at Gateley Vinden, Tim will lead and grow the differentiated service offering of the building consultancy team in the North West.
Gary joins from CBRE where he spent six years as a director and headed up the project and cost management team in the North. He has also held senior roles with Mace, as well as Turner & Townsend. As a chartered quantity surveyor, Gary brings a wide range of experience across the healthcare, public, commercial, retail and leisure sectors. Gary will strengthen Gateley Vinden’s project management and cost consultancy offering across the North West, as well as nationally.
Gayle Taylor, director and head of building, project and cost consultancy for Gateley Vinden, said: “After an extremely successful year, it is clear that there are significant opportunities in the market and so it’s the right time to bring new senior appointments on board to drive further growth. Both Tim and Gary have strong pedigrees in their respective disciplines which will strengthen our full-service offering. This sees us working seamlessly alongside wider Group colleagues to deliver both legal and technical expertise under one roof for clients.”
