We are delighted to announce that we have welcomed six new members of staff to our growing Glasgow based team. Strengthening our site management capability, Colin Page joins us from Ogilvie to become Site Manager of Urban Union’s Laurieston Living development and brings with him 25 years of experience.

He is joined at the development by Ian Whitelaw who has taken on the role of Assistant Site Manager. Together they will be managing and monitoring works carried out at Laurieston to ensure construction is delivered effectively and efficiently.

Carrying out a similar role at Urban Union’s newest development, Pollokshaws Living, Andrew Bell has taken on the role of Site Manager. He brings with him 10 years of experience to the Urban Union team.

James McGuinness will be supporting Andrew as Assistant Site Manager at the Pollokshaws development, bringing nearly 40 years of industry experience.

At Urban Union’s head office, Alanna Caldwell has joined the finance team as Assistant Accountant. She is assisting Nicola Links following her promotion to Management Accountant.

Neil McKay, Managing Director of Urban Union, said: “We’re pleased to end 2020 on a high by welcoming so many new faces to the Urban Union team. Each and every one brings with them a variety of skills and experience to their roles, making them fantastic additions to an already strong and cohesive team.”

At the heart of Urban Union’s approach is an unrivalled commitment to creating communities, not simply building new homes. This is achieved by working in close partnership with local authorities, housing associations, community groups and residents.

At Urban Union, we are dedicated to ensuring opportunities for people living in the areas in which it operates, supporting targeted recruitment, training and supply chain opportunities.
