Alastair Wallace, senior partner at Thomas & Adamson
Construction and property consultancy, Thomas & Adamson, is modernising its operations using a seven-figure funding package from HSBC.
The Edinburgh-based business has seen turnover rise by 10% per year over the last five years, and HSBC UK’s funding will support a modernisation project to enable continued growth.
The modernisation includes new IT systems, including hardware, software, and an online document management system, along with a new telephony system and property improvements. These changes are part of the business’s effort to maintain its market leading position by improving efficiency, increasing service quality and being recognised as a great place to work.
Alastair Wallace, senior partner at Thomas & Adamson, said: “We need to be continuously looking to improve our business to maintain our reputation within the marketplace. However, many things come at a significant cost, and HSBC UK has shown a genuine interest in our plans and put forward a competitive finance package, which will support us both now and in the future.”
Nigel Kerr, relationship director at HSBC UK in Scotland, said: “Thomas & Adamson are an established business in the UK and have a clear need for modernisation to sustain their business growth. We’re pleased to lend our support to a business with a clear vision for the future.”
Thomas & Adamson has UK offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London, as well as global offices in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Kiev and in the United States. As property consultants, it assists with most aspects of construction from cost and project management to building surveying and health and safety.
Thomas & Adamson works for leading clients in both the public and private sector and are currently delivering the India Buildings in Edinburgh, to create the first Virgin Hotel in Europe. Other clients across the UK include Jaguar Land Rover, Tesco, British Land, Ediston Real Estate and Chris Stewart Group.
