New offices in Glasgow and Leeds signal Ardent’s continued growth
We are delighted to announce that Ardent has moved into new locations in Glasgow and Leeds following a series of new hires – and plans for further growth.
In Glasgow, the team – led by Head of Scotland, Gillian Lang – has now moved into offices in Queen’s House in St. Vincent Place at the heart of the city’s central business district.
The office has enough space to allow the team to double in size again as it continues to grow its workload, particularly in the renewables sector in Scotland.
And, six years after opening its first office in Leeds, Ardent is also moving its Yorkshire based team into an office at 36 Park Row in the city centre.
The new office allows for further expansion in the region and is the base for the company’s new Planning & Engagement directorate, as well as delivering across all its key service and sector areas.
Carl Weaver, Chief Operating Officer at Ardent – which surpassed the £10 million turnover mark in its most recent set of accounts and has undergone a major rebrand, said the move showed the company’s commitment to all areas of the UK.
He said: “We have grown rapidly in Scotland and, by opening the new office in Glasgow, we are showing that we are here to stay. We have a long-term plan and we are committing to it and investing in it.
“There is lots of potential for new business across Scotland and this gives us a great base to work from.
“We’ve been established for longer in Leeds – since 2017, when we first began work on HS2 Phase 2B. And, while that was the project that gave us a foothold in the city, we have grown significantly since then and people from all service areas and directorates within the business are now based here.
“Again, we are showing to Leeds and to Yorkshire that we are committed to investing and growing here and the two new offices form part of our wider ambitions to double the size of the business over the next three years.”
