Britcon Expands Team in Yorkshire
Building and civil engineering business, Britcon has made three new senior appointments at its offices in Wakefield. This brings its total team to 12 at the Yorkshire base which opened in April 2014, doubling its size in the last 12 months.
Brian French has joined as Senior Quantity Surveyor bringing over 40 years’ experience within the building, civil engineering and fit-out sectors. In particular, he brings expertise in project cost management for private commercial, local authority and NHS projects. At Britcon he is initially taking commercial responsibility for Eddie Stobart and York University.
Tony Mulcrone has also joined the Britcon team as Site Manager. With a strong engineering background Tony will add value on construction projects with a heavy emphasis on sub-structures and external works.
Craig Bell has been recruited to the Britcon Engineering Services (BES) division of Britcon as Structural Steel 3D (Tekla) Draftsman. He has worked for a number of Yorkshire steel fabrication firms in draughtsman, buyer and estimator roles. At BES Craig is currently working on a Bulk Store for ABP in Kings Lynn, and Rolls Royce in Lancashire.
The appointments reflect continuous growth in Yorkshire for Britcon with major client instructions from York University, BASF, Eddie Stobart, Cepac and Bradford City Council. It has also recently secured a place on the contractors framework for Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Trust.
Paul Clarkson, Managing Director at Britcon said, “We are delighted to bring Brian, Tony and Craig on to the team at Wakefield where they will be a great asset to the existing structure. This is a result of continuous growth for us in the region and will help to facilitate our plans in the near future. The Wakefield office supports our Lincolnshire office well and also provides a more local base for some of our team.”
