Deloitte Real Estate has appointed Stephen Naismith as assistant director within the construction advisory team from Davis Langdon.
Naismith will lead the cost consultancy arm in Manchester and will be responsible for cost planning, tender preparation, procurement and cost management at all stages of construction projects, working closely with the London-based cost consultancy team.
Naismith has several years of industry experience and has worked on some of the region's most notable schemes, including the transformation of the Manchester Town Hall complex and the John Lewis store at the Trafford Centre.
Peter Wilkinson, head of construction advisory, said: "Stephen's appointment adds another facet of strength to our construction advisory team in the North. He is a talented and dedicated individual who has consistently delivered great results. Our clients will benefit from his vast experience and diligence."
Naismith said: "We have some great clients and exciting projects already on the books and I aim to build on this over the coming months.
"The Deloitte name is synonymous with excellence in financial management and I have no doubt that construction cost consultancy will be another area where Deloitte Real Estate excels."
