A senior quantity surveyor with more than 20 years experience in the construction industry has joined an expanding Harrogate firm.
Mike Smith, a former pre-construction contract manager at York based Shepherd Construction, is the latest recruit to Pannal Business Park-based Cooper & Hall.
After leaving the construction firm, Mike spent a number of years working as a freelance quantity surveyor working for a number of companies, including his new employer.
Mike’s appointment takes the Cooper & Hall workforce up to 14. It has just announced the opening of a Glasgow office which will eventually have up to four staff based there.
Mike said: “I have worked with the Cooper & Hall team for a number of years now, and didn’t hesitate for a minute when directors Phil Cooper and Graham Hall asked if I would consider joining their team on a permanent basis.
“The company is highly regarded within in the industry and I’m looking forward to adding real value and experience on not only ongoing projects, but future ones too!”
Cooper & Hall director Phil Cooper said: “Mike brings a wealth of experience with him and will be a real asset to the team.
“He is well known in the construction industry and his appointment as a senior quantity surveyor will help boost our credentials in the sector. He will also act as mentor to younger members of the team who can call on him for sound and practical advice when they need it.”
