HARDIES PROPERTY & Construction Consultants, one of Scotland’s largest multi-discipline surveying firms, has enjoyed a special civic reception from Fife Council, to honour 100 years in business.

Taking place at the Glen Pavilion and attended by Fife Provost Jim Leishman and around 100 invited guests, the reception was part of Hardies year-long centenary celebrations which have also seen reception events in Edinburgh Castle, Edinburgh City Chambers and the Mining Museum at Newtongrange, Midlothian.
“We wish to extend our thanks and appreciation to Fife Council for holding this special event for us here at the Glen Pavilion,” said Derek Ferrier, Hardies Managing Partner. “November 1913 was when the firm was founded in Dunfermline by John Gordon Hardie who was a former footballer for Heart of Midlothian.
“This event in Dunfermline has been a real highlight for our clients, Hardies staff and Partners especially as Dunfermline was the birthplace of the firm.”
Jim Leishman welcomed Hardies and proposed a toast to the firm. Derek Ferrier responded on behalf of the firm during which he highlighted many of Hardies successful projects in Fife over the years such as work at Rosyth Dockyard for the new carriers; the Civic Centre in Inverkeithing High Street and the Morris Building in St Andrews.
