DESPITE what has been a challenging period for the construction industry, Green Hat Consulting has seen a year of significant growth, with the appointment of several new team members and contract wins with several high-profile clients.

A 30% growth in staff in the last three months alone, Green Hat’s latest appointments include Daniel Gilbert, who has joined as a Principal Designer, Becky Doyle as part of the Fire team, Gareth Turner as Health and Safety Consultant, and Heidi May who will be providing Business Management support.

Andrew Warring, Managing Director of Green Hat, said: “We are delighted to welcome our new members to the team. At Green Hat, we are truly passionate about our people, something we were thrilled to be recognised for at this year’s Constructing Excellence Wales Awards.”

The growth in personnel follows a number of client wins, with the business now working with over 100 businesses and organisations across the UK, this year has seen the Swansea-based consultancy begin working with some of the biggest names in the construction industry, including Kier, Redrow Homes, Lovell and BECT.

Andrew added: “It is fantastic to be working with such prestigious organisations and we are looking forward to continuing to build on our relationships with them.

“As innovators and influencers ourselves, our team at Green Hat have a real passion for improving the construction industry and supporting companies at every stage of the project cycle.”

Green Hat’s growth is testament to the success of its ‘one stop shop’ approach to supporting those in the construction industry. In response to the pandemic, the business set up its own e-learning portal that offers a suite of online health and safety training, including accredited Covid-19 courses.

Andrew concluded: “We are extremely proud of what Green Hat has achieved to date, not to mention the hard work and innovation of our team over the past 12-18 months. We are looking forward to more exciting developments to come.”

With more new staff appointments set for the new year and a 30% increase in turnover expected by 2023, the consultancy’s future is certainly looking green.
