Member of the Week - Thomson Gray Limited

Thomson Gray are delighted to offer a wide range of core construction consultancy and specialist services to the property and construction industry including Building Surveying, Cost Consultancy, Project Management, Capital Allowances and Construction Health & Safety services.
Their client-focussed approach is dedicated to adding value to clients’ construction and property activities.
We spoke to Ross Lovatt, a part owner and director within the business, predominantly responsible for Quantity Surveying and Project Management functions. About his role, Ross told us: “I am also responsible for our work in the Highlands through our Inverness office. We are currently providing construction consultancy services on over £200m worth of construction schemes in the area for private and public sector clients including NHS Highland, Highland and Islands Enterprise, University of Highlands and Islands, Marine Harvest and Moray Estates.”
Ross told us why Thomson Gray would like to feature as Member of the Week: “Having opened our office in 2016 we are keen to promote our offering within the Inverness area. The opportunity arose to feature as member of the week and I felt it was an excellent way of providing the business with further exposure to an audience.”
Thomson Gray have recently added NEC3 Supervisor services to their list of specialisms. Their first ‘live’ commission in the area will be the new Inverness Civic Centre for the Scottish Courts Service with Robertson Construction.
Ross shared with us Thomson Gray’s business plans over the next 12 months: “Continue to grow and expand within the Region. Plans are in place to add additional local base presence to our office with the recruitment of an associate director planned for this year, if growth continues.”
Thomson Gray are proud to have received Investors in People Silver accreditation 2017 – 2020 and they also received commendation for their work at Kelvingrove House, Glasgow.
Ross told Inverness Chamber what he values most about membership: “A chance to meet like minded individuals and develop relationships".
To make the most of your membership, Ross’ top-tip would be: “Embrace your membership as it provides you with access to a number of businesses, interests and don’t forget to follow up on any introductions made. It’s easy to get sucked back into the emails and normal working meaning you miss out on those important connections and potential new business contacts.”
