Ashwood Scotland has announced that one of its original founders, Archie Meikle, officially retired from the business on 31st March.

A quarter of a century after starting up Ashwood from a two-person office in Livingston, the business has grown into one of Scotland’s most respected construction companies.

During his tenure, Mr Meikle has been involved in over 500 projects including the development and refurbishment of some iconic structures, such as West Register House in Edinburgh and the award-winning Scotstoun House, South Queensferry; a £3.6 million project for ARUP Scotland.

Ashwood’s turnover has grown to £12m with over 85 staff now employed across the company at its headquarters in Livingston.

Commenting on his retirement, Mr Meikle said: “I am very proud of the whole Ashwood family, the reputation we have built and the success we have had. To everyone who has been part of our business and to all our customers who have trusted us with their business, thank you for everything.

David Charman, Ashwood’s co-founder and managing director, commented: “It has been an absolute pleasure working alongside Archie. On behalf of all of us, I thank him wholeheartedly for his dedication, leadership and exceptional hard work over the last twenty-five years. He is leaving the business so well positioned for the future.”
