What does McGowan Environmental Engineering do?
We’re a contracting company based in Aviemore employing around 60 people. We run civil and environmental engineering projects across Scotland, from Orkney to the Borders and from Aberdeen to the west coast.
What’s your role?
I’m employed as the contracts manager to win work, plan work, manage contracts and close them out. I work on the environmental side, which involves a wide variety of projects from creating new wetlands to peatland restoration high in the hills.
What does your average day look like?
No two days are the same. We often joke about renting out the passenger seat in one of our pick-up trucks. Any takers wouldn’t necessarily know where they’re heading at the start of the day, because very often we don’t, but we could guarantee a fantastic experience because we get to work in some pretty cool places.
