Land & Water Services is celebrating the landmark work anniversary of its Managing Director, Adrian Gascoyne, after he has played an important role in the leading wet civil engineering firms’ success and growth over the past 21 years.

Adrian joined the company back in 1999, at a pivotal moment when the business heads of Land & Water Group were deciding strategically how its companies would interact and develop. Since then, Adrian has played an intrinsic role in laying the foundations, and continuing the legacy, for how the Group operates today.

From his initial role as Commercial Manager to his swift move to Group Commercial Director in 2001, Adrian has showed commitment towards the company’s commercial excellence, co-project managing the implementation of an entire new reporting system for the Group and helping to implement the construction industry’s ground-breaking “Partnering Contracts”, which has helped develop open relationships with larger clients.

James Maclean, CEO of Land & Water Group, says: “It’s been an absolute pleasure to work with Adrian over the past 21 years.

“He’s a natural leader, a true people person, and there are countless times when his collaborative thinking has produced innovative results.

“He’s been an intrinsic part of the success of Land & Water Group from the very early days, providing commercial support and guidance for individual companies, potential acquisitions and contractual issues.

“We couldn’t have achieved all that we have as a company without him and I personally am looking forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”

Today, Adrian is Managing Director of Land & Water Services, a role where he has built a strong senior management team and introduced more strategic planning which has seen the company grow into the robust business it is today, able to face the challenges of today, whatever they may be.

He has been the voice of nurturing young talent, supporting the enrolment of apprentices to the Land & Water team, and has been committed in creating a better workplace for all through his strong, ‘stay calm’ leadership.

It is in these times that Adrian’s resolve has truly come to light. His ability to be resilient and remain calm and considered under pressure has helped the group navigate choppy waters and emerge stronger and we are proud to have him at the helm in these uncertain times and we hope for many years to come.
