After seven years working in Italy, Gleeds is delighted to announce it has opened an office in Milan, Italy.
The property and construction consultancy have had a team working with acclaimed clients in Italy since 2015 and their knowledge of the local and Italian-speaking market enables them to help clients across many sectors. Recent growth areas include mission critical (data centers), logistics and student accommodation.
It couldn’t be a better time to be investing in Italy. According to the National Statistics Institute, Istat, confidence in the construction sector is running at a high not seen since the property boom of the 1980s.
"The challenges in the sector have not stopped Italian projects from progressing, and that is fantastic news both for Gleeds and our clients," said Giorgio Conrater, Gleeds Operational Manager, who heads up the new office.
Milan native Giorgio has spent over twenty years leading construction projects all over Europe; including a decade spent in London delivering data centers and office building projects, and six years in Madrid as Framework Lead for Gleeds on a world leading technology client, providing TDD and project monitoring services across EMEA and managing retail and student accommodation projects
The latest investment in Milan will see Giorgio bringing together his experience and coordinating a pan-European team across Italy, Spain, Austria and Poland and focusing on Mission Critical, which is a key growth area for clients in the region.
Giorgio said: "It's brilliant to see continued growth and appetite for new projects from construction clients in Milan and it is fantastic to add Italy to the Gleeds network of EMEA offices."
