Construction consultancy Evolution5 has appointed Gary Jacobs as Director of its new London office.

The new base which is located near Kings Cross has just opened and is part of the consultancy’s ongoing expansion and commitment to offering the highest service standards for its London-based property and construction clients.

In this role, Gary will lead the London office for Evolution5 and will work with developers, commercial property investors, building owners and landlords to further develop the consultancy’s client portfolio for project management, building surveying and cost management services.

Commenting on this latest appointment, Jamie Barrett, Managing Director of Evolution5, said, “We are delighted to welcome Gary to the team.
