TUV SUD Real Estate has announced a strong order book for its Aberdeen & Dundee offices.

Formerly known as Wallace Whittle, the business became part of the TUV SUD Group in 2011 and is currently re-branding as TUV SUD Real Estate to underline their multi-discipline consultancy offer, which includes Mechanical & Electrical Building Services, Sustainability, Lighting, Vertical Transportation, Fire & Acoustics.

The business was named CIBSE Employer of the Year in 2016 and has now become one of the few consultancies to have attained formal BIM Level 2 certification by BSI.

Despite the slowdown of oil & gas related work the business has continued to secure design commissions for major projects including the new £50 million Aberdeen FC stadium and training facility at Kingsford, the £51m Inverurie Academy as well as significant student accommodation projects at Caledon (150 units) & Pittodrie Street (550 units) and the Aberdeen Journal’s relocation to Marischal Square & Plot 2 at Dundee Waterfront.

The firm has also been working on the proposed £97m re-development of Broadford Works. In addition, it currently has local framework appointments with Aberdeenshire Council, Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeen International Airport, hub North Scotland and hub East Central Scotland.

Andy Forbes, location director for TUV SUD Real Estate’s Aberdeen & Dundee offices, said: “We have had to adapt to the changing circumstance in the local market, and I believe we have done so successfully as our strong order book demonstrates. We also have a respected and experienced management team in Derek Andrew who leads our mechanical team and Steve Bruce who now steps up, following a restructuring, to lead our electrical team. We are also actively growing our office and workload in Dundee and the surrounding area.

“It is a challenging time for our industry with ever changing and more onerous regulations and advances in technology, not to mention a relentless drive for value for money. We thrive on these challenges and I’m confident in our ability to meet them head on for the benefit of our clients and fellow professionals.”
