Wemyss Properties appoints contracts manager from stricken CBC
Property developer Wemyss Properties has appointed Scott Brotherstone as contracts manager as the company completes a development which was paused due to the demise of the main contractor.
Scott was the contracts manager for Central Building Contractors (CBC), which had been tasked with delivering the development of eight contemporary townhouse properties at Craigleith Road in Edinburgh.
After CBC entered administration in April, Wemyss Properties took the decision to directly employ Scott, who brings almost 30 years of construction experience from his previous roles within construction management at Morgan Sindall, Taylor Woodrow, Bovis Lend Lease as well as CBC.
Scott will now lead a small team to complete this boutique townhouse development, which will see the first showhome open to the public in the coming weeks.
Scott Brotherstone said: “I’m delighted that this fantastic opportunity has arisen from otherwise difficult circumstances. I already feel part of a very dynamic, close-knit team and it’s exciting to join Wemyss Properties at a time when the company has ambitious growth plans and I am able to oversee the completion of this stunning development.”
Matthew Atton, manager director of Wemyss Properties, said: “We worked closely with Scott throughout this project when he was with CBC. He has a wealth of knowledge and expertise so we are thrilled to have him join the Wemyss Properties team and look forward to the successful completion of our Craigleith Road development.”
