Glass, a chartered civil engineer, will bring his 35 years’ industry experience to Robertson, strengthening the team’s credentials by implementing a strategic growth plan in Scotland.
He was most recently an operations director at Laing O’Rourke’s infrastructure business and represented its interests on two joint venture boards for the Manchester Metrolink Programme with VolkerRail, and its £300m enabling works project with J Murphy and Sons in the North area of HS2 Phase 1.
Prior to this he also played a pivotal role in delivering Heathrow Terminal 2A, and Manchester Terminal 2.
Derek Shewan, CEO of Robertson said: “Bryan will provide strategic and focussed leadership to the business, enabling the Robertson Civil Engineering offering to progress on its journey to becoming recognised as a leading provider in the delivery of infrastructure projects throughout Scotland.”
His appointment follows the latest high-profile contract win for the civil engineering business, as work continues on the Duntanlich Service Infrastructure project in Perthshire for MI SWACO.
Glass said: “I’m very pleased to join a business that has family principles at its heart – principles that have no doubt led Robertson to the leading position it holds across the UK’s built environment sector.
“I’m looking forward to developing a project delivery team that will be respected throughout the civil engineering environment in Scotland.”
