QS says move plugs gap in specialism
QS Alinea has nabbed a facade specialist from Lendlease to beef up its expertise in the area.
Daniel Gruesser joins after nearly three years at the firm with Alinea and Lendlease working together on a number of schemes including Stanhope’s 150 Bishopsgate scheme – now renamed One Bishopsgate Plaza – in the City of London which has been designed by PLP.
Gruesser joins as a facade specialist and will work under partner Steve Mudie who added: “Our clients and architects really value this specialist input and our skill is in translating an architect’s design intent into cost effective solutions.
“This acts as further evidence that the business believes in investing in specialist skills across the key elements of a building’s construction.”
Before joining Lendlease, Gruesser was a senior facade engineer at Meinhardt Facade Technology.
