Clark Contracts gets Saughton Park restoration underway

Clark Contracts is delivering the construction of a new café and renovation of the historic stable blocks at Saughton Park in Edinburgh.

The City of Edinburgh Council awarded the contract to Clark Contracts following a successful pre-qualification stage and competitive tender.

The historic stables which are being restored and remodelled will be brought back into use and will provide office space for park staff, a permanent home for the Royal Caledonian Horticultural Society and provide a 70 seater venue for community use. A new café along with new public toilets, including a changing places toilet, a bothy for volunteers and storage will be constructed during the 40 week project.

Funding has been secured by the council for the restoration works from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Michael Scanlan, director at Clark Contracts, said: “We look forward to working with the City of Edinburgh Council on this exciting project and we are eager to see the park fully restored and being enjoyed by the community.”

Clark Contracts has recently worked with the council to deliver the design and build of four nursery schools across Edinburgh.
