Artium Group announces appointment of new Directors to lead strategic growth
Martin Watson and Joe McDermott have joined the construction subsidiary of fast-growing Harrogate- based Artium Group from GMI Construction Group.
Martin will become Managing Director and shareholder while Joe becomes Director and shareholder.
The pair join Garry Shaw, who was appointed Director and shareholder of Artium Construction last year, with the trio having 60 years’ collective senior construction industry experience. They will work with the board of directors across the group to build a £50m turnover construction business over the next five years.
Artium Construction projects include new build and refurbishment projects within the Yorkshire and Humber regions, spanning public and private sectors. These range from £2m to £10m in various domains, including residential, student, healthcare, industrial, and office spaces.
Martin will oversee all company operations, strategic planning, project management, financial stewardship, and team leadership. His customer-focussed approach to delivering quality, safely and on time has previously earned him a number of industry-recognised awards.
Joe’s responsibilities will include tendering, pre-construction negotiating and commercial governance.
