Outpost will target energy, infrastructure, commercial and industrial sectors

Consultant Gleeds has made its first entry into the Canadian market with the launch of a new office in Calgary, Alberta.

The office will be headed by Campbell Adams, a quantity surveyor with over 30 years’ experience.

Gleeds said its Canadian business will offer a range of services including contracting and procurement strategy, cost management, contract management, commercial management services, alternative disputes resolution and shutdown management services. It will focus on the energy, infrastructure, commercial and industrial sectors.

Adams said of his appointment: “I am delighted to have been chosen to fly the flag for Gleeds in Canada. Alberta is in the midst of a complex construction cycle, but the energy and infrastructure sectors in particular present a huge opportunity for us to add value and one that I intend to maximise.”

The office follows a string of recent openings for Gleeds, which now has 65 offices across 21 countries.

Richard Steer, chairman of Gleeds Worldwide, added: “Having had so much success south of the border in the U.S., I am thrilled to be opening our first office in Canada.

“The construction industry here is forecast to rally after a difficult few years and I am eager to see what the future holds for us in this exciting market with Campbell at the helm”.
