Richardson and Starling has doubled the floor space of their Kirkcaldy office and recruited 6 new staff following the renewal of a multi-year preservation contract from Fife Council.
The agreement with Scotland’s largest preservation company extends to carrying out preservation works to all social housing and public buildings across the Kingdom for the next 3 years.
The Cambuslang-based firm has purchased an adjacent building to their existing premises on Mitchelston Industrial Estate in Kirkcaldy, doubling their office space in the process.
It takes the total number of staff working out of the base to 25 with 11 fully equipped vans servicing the area.
“As part of our commitment to the region and to this contract we have invested heavily in additional premises whilst also extensively refurbishing our existing office,” explains managing director, Graham Duncan.
“We now have 2,000 sq ft of office space and have recruited one new property surveyor, an administrator and 4 new technicians.”
The latest expansion by the business, who are the largest company in the Veitchi Group, comes a week after the announcement of a new office in Inverness with the creation of 7 new jobs.
In July, Richardson and Starling won a national trade body’s contractor of the year title for the record third successive year.
The firm retained the ‘Contractor of the Year, Damp and Timber Treatment’ title at The Property Care Association’s Best Practice Awards held last month at The Slate, University of Warwick.
The firm also walked away with the ‘Innovation’ title as well as two highly commended accolades in the ‘Training and Staff Development’ and ‘Sustainability’ categories.
