Contract renewal drives expansion at Richardson & Starling

Building preservation company Richardson & Starling has created six new jobs and expanded its office space after agreeing a new council contract.

The firm has doubled the floor space of its Kirkcaldy office by purchasing a building adjacent to its premises on Mitchelston Industrial Estate.

The business has also recruited six staff, bringing the total number of employees working out of the base to 25.

The moves follow the renewal of a multi-year preservation contract from Fife Council.

Managing director Graham Duncan said: “As part of our commitment to the region and to this contract we have invested heavily in additional premises while also extensively refurbishing our existing office.

“We now have 2,000 sq ft of office space and have recruited one new property surveyor, an administrator and four new technicians.”

The renewed agreement with Fife Council includes carrying out preservation works to all social housing and public buildings across the kingdom for the next three years.

This latest expansion comes one week after the Cambuslang-based firm announced a new office in Inverness, which created seven jobs and took the company’s branch network to 13 across Scotland and the north of England.

Richardson & Starling is the largest company within the Veitchi Group and has been providing preservation services since 1935.
