Ashwood Scotland has secured new building contracts valued in excess of £4.5m.

The Bathgate-base contractor recently started work as the main contractor on the new sports hall extension at Liberton High School in Edinburgh. The £2.25m project for the City of Edinburgh Council includes the creation of an extended gymnasium/dance studio and new changing rooms alongside the existing facilities.

“We were extremely proud to be appointed by the Council to carry out this high profile project and will work closely with the local community and other key stakeholders in delivering a first class product,” commented Ashwood Scotland’s managing director, Archie Meikle.

A number of other contract wins have been picked up including a £1.5m extension to a residential property in North Berwick and a £500,000 sports centre refurbishment in West Lothian.

In addition, the firm is involved in ward alterations for NHS Lothian at Livingston’s St John’s Hospital and will also carry out window replacement work at Gilmerton Community Centre.

“The construction sector in Scotland is steadily recovering and we have been pleased to see not only an increase in available work but contract values too,” added Meikle.
