Established in 2010 by Graeme Scott, Whitecross is now a thriving building consultancy with offices in both Glasgow and Edinburgh, advising clients throughout the UK. The business has grown considerably over the past four years with staff numbers increasing by 200% in order to keep up with demand and activity from clients.

With over 20 years experience in the industry, Alan will be a great asset to our clients.
