A series of major new contracts in the East of Scotland, totalling over £12 million, has led Paisley based construction company Clark Contracts to double the size of its Edinburgh office.

The new workspace, which remains within Rosewell House, Harvest Drive, Edinburgh, provides 2,300ft2 accommodating the company’s East based Contracts Managers, Estimators, Quantity Surveyors and Maintenance Surveyors.

In the past six months, the construction, refurbishment and maintenance contractor has won new business across the East of Scotland from new and returning customers. These include The University of Edinburgh which appointed Clark Contracts to undertake Phase 2 of extensive refurbishment works at the ‘B’ listed Pleasance Complex, the main hub of the Edinburgh International Festival. Previously, Clark Contracts delivered Phases 1A and 1B of the overall £3.8m improvements.

The company has also secured new work from the University of St. Andrews, delivering the £500,000 refurbishment of student accommodation at Angus and Stanley Smith House.

The Northern Lighthouse Board appointed Clark Contracts for the £1.1m refurbishment of its Category A listed headquarters in the capital’s George Street and the company is also delivering its fourth project for Lidl UK GmbH, constructing a new store in Craigmillar.

Gordon Cunningham, Managing Director, Clark Contracts said, “As we continue to grow across the country, we want to ensure we have the facilities to accommodate our employees in a flexible, modern environment. As a result of our continued growth in this region, we have decided to increase this space sooner than anticipated.”
