Surveyor Smiths Gore clinches heritage contract

SMITHS Gore is to provide building surveyor services to Scottish Natural Heritage until 2016 under a contract that embraces almost 200 properties ranging from visitor centres to historic ruins.

The work will involve undertaking condition surveys of the buildings and working with the SNH property asset management system to create a programme of maintenance for the next three years and beyond.
The contract is not restricted to building surveying and as part of its tender submission, Smiths Gore also bid for estate agency, architectural services, DDA assessments, and CDM co-ordination.
The work will initially be managed from the Dumfries and Fochabers offices and, subject to how the contract develops, may involve additional resources from the firm.
