Britcon is £40m turnover business headquartered in Scunthorpe that directly employs 90 people on its project sites across the country. It opened the Wakefield office in April 2014 as a Yorkshire base and now has a team of 12 working there.
Brian French has joined as senior quantity surveyor, bringing experience in project cost management for private commercial, local authority and NHS projects. At Britcon he is initially taking commercial responsibility for Eddie Stobart and York University projects.
Tony Mulcrone has joined Britcon as site manager and Craig Bell has been recruited to the Britcon Engineering Services (BES) division as structural steel 3D (Tekla) draftsman. At BES Craig Bell is initially working on a bulk store for ABP in Kings Lynn and for Rolls Royce in Lancashire.
Britcon managing director Paul Clarkson said: “We are delighted to bring Brian, Tony and Craig on to the team at Wakefield where they will be a great asset to the existing structure. This is a result of continuous growth for us in the region and will help to facilitate our plans in the near future. The Wakefield office supports our Lincolnshire office well and also provides a more local base for some of our team.”
