IN its first trading quarter of 2021, Paisley-headquartered Clark Contracts has secured over £40m of new orders, from new and repeat customers.
New orders include the refurbishment of the category B listed Warrender Swim Centre for Edinburgh Leisure, the £9m design and build of new student accommodation at Stanley Place, in Edinburgh, the extension and fit out of 4-5 Lochside Avenue for Knight Property Group and the refurbishment and extension of The Old Course Hotel, St Andrews.
A number of orders have been secured from repeat customers. These include two refurbishment projects within the Curran Building for the University of Strathclyde, totalling over £2m. A further two orders have been received from the University of Glasgow, including the refurbishment of laboratories within the Sir James Black Building which is home to the departments of Physiology, Materia Medica (Pharmacology), and Forensic Medicine and Public Health.
Despite the challenges in the retail sector, the contractor’s retail division has been awarded the design and build of a new retail unit on London Road, Glasgow, to create a Sofology store.
In recent years, Clark Contracts has developed into the residential sector and is set to strengthen this experience with the construction of 65 luxury apartments in Glasgow City Centre and the design and build of an affordable housing scheme, also in the West of Scotland.
Gordon Cunningham, Clark Contracts managing director, said, “We are all glad to see the back of 2020 and these positive wins in our first quarter demonstrate the customers confidence in our business to deliver these exciting new projects across all sectors.”
