Scotland’s largest building preservation company, Richardson and Starling, has opened a new office in Inverness.
Seven new posts are being created with the company actively recruiting from the local area. The firm is seeking 5 technicians and a property surveyor to join an administrator who is already in place.
The premises at Henderson Drive will service Inverness and the Highlands and takes the company’s branch network to 13 across Scotland and the North of England.
“There is a strong market for our services in Inverness and the Highlands with a high demand to use local-based companies,” said Richardson & Starling’s managing director, Graham Duncan.
“Until now we have serviced the area from our Elgin office but we are keen to work more closely with local suppliers, so setting up an Inverness office was the next obvious step for us.”
In July, the firm won a national trade body’s UK contractor of the year title for the record third successive year
The Cambuslang-headquartered organisation 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.
Richardson & Starling is the largest company within the Veitchi Group and has been providing preservation services since 1935.
