Narro, a prominent structural and civil engineering consultancy, is making an announcement regarding the retirement of Andrew Brown from its Board of Directors, effective from the 1st of July. Andrew, who has had a distinguished engineering career spanning four decades, thirty of which were with Narro and twenty serving on the Board, will be stepping down from his position. However, the Practice is delighted to share that Andrew will remain involved with the business as a Consultant, working on a part-time basis. The entire Narro team would like to extend its sincere gratitude to Andrew for his significant contributions, unwavering dedication, and exceptional leadership during his tenure on the Board.
Throughout his time on the Board of Directors, Andrew played a pivotal role in guiding Narro’s growth and success. Since his involvement, the Practice has expanded from less than 10 staff members based in a single office in Edinburgh to currently having six offices across the UK, soon reaching 100 staff. His strategic vision, engineering expertise, and unwavering commitment to excellence have been instrumental in shaping the company’s trajectory.
Andrew is also one of the most highly accredited members of the Narro team, being a Fellow of the Association for Consultancy and Engineering (ACE), the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE), and the Institution of Structural Engineers (IStructE). Throughout his career with Narro, Andrew has played a vital role in numerous high-profile projects, including Stirling Tolbooth, The Easterhouse Arts Centre (The Bridge), and has extensive experience in the healthcare and education sectors.
Simultaneously, Narro is delighted to announce the promotions of Robbie Templeton and Duncan Mowat to the position of Director. Both Robbie and Duncan have showcased exceptional capabilities and have been instrumental in driving the company’s success in their respective roles.
Robbie Templeton, who joined Narro seventeen years ago as a university graduate, has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic, profound industry knowledge, and outstanding leadership skills. In 2020, Robbie was promoted to Regional Director, playing a pivotal role in establishing a new office in Aberdeen. Robbie has significantly contributed to enhancing client relationships and driving business growth, both in Aberdeen and across the wider company. His promotion to Director is a testament to his outstanding contributions and unwavering commitment to Narro’s success.
Duncan Mowat, with over two decades of experience in the engineering sector, joined Narro in 2020 as a Senior Associate, swiftly showcasing his dedication, expertise, and leadership skills. Throughout his time with the company, Duncan has successfully led numerous impactful projects, delivering exceptional results and exceeding client expectations. His promotion to Director reflects his significant contributions to the company’s growth and his ability to lead and inspire teams.
In the Narro Glasgow office, the Practice is also thrilled to announce the promotion of Garry Porch to the position of Regional Director. Garry joined Narro in 2021, bringing extensive experience from the structural and civil engineering industry. In his new role, Garry will drive the growth and expansion of the Glasgow team.

However, I am delighted that he will remain involved with the Practice as a Consultant so that we can continue to benefit from his wisdom and experience. I am also absolutely thrilled that Robbie and Duncan are joining the Director team. Both have shown a real commitment to continuing the company’s growth, and their skills and ideas will be a tremendous asset. It is a very exciting time for everyone at Narro.”
