Wallace Whittle

We Are Back!

We Are Back!

I’ve never been more proud to announce that the management buyout of Wallace Whittle has now successfully taken place and, on behalf of myself and the senior management team, I would like to welcome you all “back” to a Wallace Whittle that will retain its original core values of Quality of Service and Quality of Product at the heart of everything we do.

As of the 1st April 2021, the full business shareholding has been passed over to the management team and it is our vision to build a business that you will be proud to work with for many years to come.

As a team we have tried to speak to as many of our clients and fellow design team members as possible over the last period however should you wish to discuss any aspect of the new “old” Wallace Whittle business please get in touch as we would be delighted to hear from you.

Key Team Members & Locations

Key Team Members & Locations

One of the key attractions of the management team taking back the ownership of Wallace Whittle after just under 10 years with TUV SUD was the opportunity for all staff from all 7 locations to move back to the new Wallace Whittle business so we could very much continue “business as usual” from day one and all our clients and fellow design team members would see a seamless transition.

This means that our offices in Aberdeen, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London UAE and Warrington will all remain as part of the new Wallace Whittle along with just under 90 staff including key team members from each office.  Details of all office and regional leads can be found on our website.

“I found Wallace Whittle a pleasure to work with on the £55m Inverurie Community Campus project. They were engaged and pro-active throughout and we are delighted with the final product. Their ability to explain technical matters in an understandable manner was particularly helpful when assessing specification options during design development. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as a leading environmental building services consultancy.”
