In recent months Faithful+Gould has recruited 15 new staff, spread across the company’s project management, quantity surveying and building surveying disciplines. The company, which is based in the Axis building in Holliday Street in the centre of the city, recently announced its best ever month’s trading when it won new commissions to manage £200 million worth of contracts in a single month.
The company leads major construction and refurbishment schemes within the transport, property and industry markets, and takes responsibility for projects from inception to completion, including management of assets. Projects in the Birmingham area in the past have included many award winning schemes such as Brindleyplace, Selfridges, The Mailbox, No1 Colmore Square, PricewaterhouseCoopers offices and Birmingham Airport. In the public sector appointments include various roles on the Building Schools for the Future Programme to rebuild and refurbish secondary schools and prestigious projects for local universities.
Further afield, Faithful+Gould is active on projects ranging from the Burj Al Arab, the world’s tallest hotel to London’s Heathrow Airport, and from giant petrochemical plants to the land for London’s 2012 Olympic bid. Its US subsidiary has been appointed as cost manager and preconstruction services provider to The Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, the agency overseeing the redevelopment of the World Trade Centre site that includes the Freedom Tower.
Director Simon Raine commented, "All sectors of our business are doing extremely well in the West Midlands and this recruitment reflects our ongoing need for the very best people in the industry to join us and help increase our success."
