Leading property consultancy CBRE has announced the appointment of Ian Plender, who joins the National Building Consultancy team and will be based in the firm’s Aberdeen office.
Ian brings over ten years’ experience to the role following a stint in Knight Frank’s Building team in Aberdeen. His new role with CBRE will see him covering all aspects of Building Consultancy such as acquisition surveys, dilapidations, project management and design for CBRE’s extensive range of local, national and international clients.
In 2015 CBRE re-established its National Building Consultancy team in Aberdeen following the appointment of Roddy Morrison, director and the head of the Building Consultancy team in Aberdeen. Since his appointment, Roddy has been focusing on developing the team to bolster its reputation as a market leading service.
In the past two years the team has been involved in over £50million worth of project management and development monitoring instructions and has undertaken building surveys and dilapidation services on numerous properties across the retail, office, industrial and hotel sectors. Its client base is predominately global oil and gas companies, pension funds and local and national property developers.
Roddy Morrison said: “This is an exciting time for the expanding Building team at CBRE; Ian’s appointment enables us to add capacity to the team to strengthen our offering to clients.
“We are confident Ian will prosper in his new role, implementing his expertise to handle clients on both a local and global platform. His knowledge and experience will prove invaluable as we develop the team and build on recent successes.”
Ian Plender added: “I am thrilled to be joining CBRE. It is a privilege to be furthering my career with the world’s largest property advisor. CBRE’s Building Consultancy team prides itself on offering strong technical expertise to a large and diverse client base so I hope to be a positive asset to the already skilled team.”
