Award-winning construction and fit-out contractor, Gilbert-Ash, has announced the creation of 40 new jobs in the first half of 2015.
The substantial increase in staff numbers has been driven by a series of high-profile contract wins across the UK, including a £13million contract to refurbish and extend the National Army Museum and a £20million refurbishment of the world-renowned Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London.
This consistent success with large contracts has also seen Gilbert-Ash expand its base in London, with the company moving to larger new premises in the centre of the city.
The jobs are across all construction disciplines including site managers, site engineers, design managers, planners and estimators.
Ray Hutchinson, Managing Director of Gilbert-Ash, said, “We took the strategic decision to target projects that would allow us to make use of our expertise and experience and this activity is helping us to sustain our plans for continual growth. By specifically targeting bespoke projects in niche areas, we have won a number of high profile, multi-million pound contracts and we anticipate further wins in the coming year.”
Gilbert-Ash has recently completed the 5G Innovation Centre at the University of Surrey, which is the first facility of its kind worldwide dedicated to the research and development of 5G technologies. In Liverpool, the company has recently finished Phase 1 of the major refurbishment of another landmark site, the Liverpool Philharmonic Hall.
