Construction firm Andrew Scott Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of its new Director of Stadia and Leisure. As of the 1st June 2016, retired rugby player Jonathan Davies OBE will be joining the Port Talbot based team with his experience on the field certain to come in handy as the company looks to develop further within the leisure sector.
“After representing Wales and Great Britain in both the rugby union and rugby league, and working as a rugby commentator, television host and media personality since my retirement, I’m keen to put my sporting experience plus make use of my relationships in the sporting world to good use in a completely different context. I look forward to working for Andrew Scott and promoting their expertise throughout the stadia and leisure sector,” said Jonathan.
Thanks to the new appointment, the company – whose Cardigan Castle development was recently voted ‘Project of the Year’ at the RICS Wales Awards 2016, one of three accolades awarded to Andrew Scott at the prestigious event – will aim to build on their success across multiple construction markets.
Andrew Scott Ltd has a long history in building sports stadia across the UK, and has been doing so for over 100 years. Previous projects include the Partick Thistle stadiums in the 1910s, Cardiff Arms Park in the 1960s and 1970s, and more recently rugby stadiums at Parc y Scarlets in Llanelli and Newport Gwent Dragons (Rodney Parade). Others include Hampshire Cricket’s Rose Bowl (Ageas Bowl), and the Ryder Cup 2010 clubhouse and infrastructure at the Celtic Manor Resort. The firm is widely recognised for delivering very high quality and iconic sports stadia, training facilities and leisure projects on time, within budget and safely.
“It is a great pleasure to have Jonathan on board with us. He will be capitalising on our pedigree in sports projects whilst also targeting national developers in other niche sectors and securing particularly high value projects across the UK as part of his role. We look forward to working closely with Jonathan and reaping the rewards as we break through the £50 million turnover target and hopefully increase profit and profile,” concluded Mark Bowen, Managing Director at Andrew Scott Ltd.
