My name is Stewart McArthur, I have 30 years’ experience in the house building industry. I began working in Building Standards and have worked with in both the public and private sectors. I worked in the warranty sector for a number of companies including Zurich Building Guarantee, Premier Guarantee and Q Assure Build Ltd. I also have recent experience as a site manager. This broad experience has given me a greater understanding of the house building industry from all perspectives. In all these roles I have always prioritised and promoted build quality and innovation.
I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University with a degree in Fire Risk Engineering. During this time, I attended seminars at Maryland University and had the privilege of being tutored by some of the greatest experts in Fire Engineering which deepened my knowledge further.
I have been a member of Chartered Association of Building Engineers since 2001 and have played an active part in the regional committee for the past ten years and as Chairman of Scotland Region. I am currently Vice President of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers.
I am passionate about improving standards within the house building industry and I am a firm believer in training, innovation and knowledge sharing.
Recently I have returned to the warranty sector with Q Assure build Ltd. Q are based at Ardrossan and have offices in the south of England. Q is a forward-looking warranty provider with a very strong focus on quality and service standards within the construction industry.
I am also involved in RICS in Scotland and I am the chair for the community council for my local area.
