Back to all news

Guests at the evening’s event included clients and customers of the industry-leading consultancy.

On Wednesday 24 August 2022, employees of Frazer-Nash Consultancy Limited, a KBR Company, were delighted to be joined by customers in the region to officially celebrate the opening of the new Frazer-Nash Glasgow office, with Paul Sweeney, Member of Scottish Parliament, officiating the reception.

The new office, in the heart of Glasgow, signifies the next step in Frazer-Nash’s journey in Scotland, and the company’s ongoing commitment to providing systems and engineering technology capabilities and industry-leading services to customers in the region.

Guests at the evening’s event included clients and customers of the industry-leading consultancy, as well as employees based in the area and from further afield. All were welcomed with a drinks and canape reception in honour of the opening.

Andrew Barrie, Frazer-Nash Managing Director, and President Government Solutions EMEA at KBR commented:

“Since opening its doors in 2004, Frazer-Nash’s Glasgow operation has expanded at a considerable rate; from its humble beginnings as a tiny two-person office, it has now increased in capacity to accommodate over 100 people, firmly establishing Frazer-Nash’s presence in Scotland.”

John Devlin, Programmes Director, Frazer-Nash, added:

“I joined the team in Glasgow in 2004, and am delighted with the way that our initial small team has grown to a full service, 100-person office, able to support many businesses and government departments across Scotland and further afield. It was important that our loyal and valued customers could join us and the team to celebrate our milestone in Glasgow today.”

“Our client base has grown significantly in Scotland since establishing a presence here in Glasgow. Not only do we have great links with EDF Energy, Scottish Power and SSE, but our unique capabilities in the region include nuclear submarine safety, systems engineering management, structural analysis, and renewables technology, as well as solving the most complex engineering challenges.”

Paul Sweeney, MSP, unveiled a plaque to commemorate the company’s new premises. Paul commented at the event:

“Thanks so much to all of you for this fantastic edifice of engineering in Glasgow.

I think what Frazer-Nash is doing, and what KBR is offering now under this new partnership, is incredible for Glasgow. When you think about the city’s heritage in engineering – a place where innovation took place that transformed global economies, and impacted how people lived their lives – it massively improved their quality of living across centuries.

“The sort of work that you do here at Frazer-Nash carries on that tradition, and that’s a great thing for this city to celebrate, and that’s why we were pleased to accept the invitation to be here tonight, and to learn more about the hugely diverse work that you do here.

“The power of knowledge has a global impact, and that’s exactly what you guys are doing. I’m so inspired to be here amongst people with such creative potential, and look forward to seeing the work you do under the new KBR partnership – and thanks so much for what you do to build Glasgow’s global reputation.”

The new Glasgow office is located right in the city centre, at 5th floor, 180 West George Street, Glasgow G2 2NR. The office will be open from 8.30am to 5.00pm, Monday to Friday.
