Stephen Kydd rises to associate at Hardies’ Dundee office
Hardies Property & Construction Consultants has elevated Stephen Kydd to the position of associate in its growing Dundee office.
A Carnoustie native, Mr Kydd is an Abertay University alumnus with an honours degree in quantity surveying. His diverse experience spans various private practices and an international stint in Barbados with DHP Associates.
He returned to Scotland to work for a couple of local firms before joining Hardies in 2020 as a senior surveyor. Following three years of dedication, commitment and coaching of junior staff members, Mr Kydd has been promoted to associate.
Strengthening the senior team, he now sits alongside associates Scott Henderson and Bryan Keay in running the Dundee Office under the guidance of partner and head of quantity surveying, Douglas Smith.
Mr Kydd said: “I am delighted to accept the role of associate within Hardies. This promotion is not just a career milestone for me; it’s a reflection of the amazing opportunities and growth within our organisation.
“I am excited about the challenges and achievements that lie ahead.”
Mr Smith added: “I am genuinely thrilled about Stephen’s promotion to associate. This achievement reflects not only his individual accomplishments but also the collaborative and supportive environment we foster at our firm.
“Stephen has been influential in the rise of graduates and trainees within our Dundee office and I am fully committed to providing the guidance and resources needed for him to thrive in his new role.”
Hardies’ recently refurbished office in Albert Square, Dundee has gone from housing a skeleton staff of six employees over the past three Covid and post-Covid years, to a full capacity of 26 full-time employees, split between Hardies and sister company Shepherd Chartered Surveyors.
Hardies now has quantity surveying, building surveying, housing, energy, and principal design services under one roof and now, joined by Shepherd, commercial, residential, valuation and letting, making the Dundee office a vibrant base in the heart of the city, able to deliver across all property disciplines.
