The Prince of Wales, Duke of Rothesay has officially opened the new Netherley headquarters of North-east civil engineering firm, W M Donald.
The Duke was treated to a guided tour of the entire W M Donald site, beginning with the purpose-built workshops, before moving on to the new two-storey office block, which covers 10,000 sq ft, created for their team of 30 office-based staff.
During the tour, The Duke met with business owners, Willie and Elaine Donald, as well as senior managers and employees from the various sectors within W M Donald.
Representatives from Burns Construction and Alan Forbes Architects, the builder and architect behind the project, were also present to talk through their original designs.
Willie Donald, owner of W M Donald said “We felt incredibly privileged to welcome The Duke of Rothesay to our new office, and to talk to him about the work we do in the North-east. He was especially interested to hear about some of the projects that we have been working on recently, including AWPR and P&J Live, and to meet the teams behind these projects.
“We usually prefer to keep our heads down and concentrate on our work, but we are also very passionate about our team, and ensuring that they have the best working environment and equipment. For that reason, we decided to celebrate the opening of our new home, and we were delighted when The Duke of Rothesay accepted our invitation to officially open the new office for us.”
