Building preservation specialist completes awards hat-trick

BUILDING preservation specialist Richardson and Starling has won a national trade body’s contractor of the year title for the third year in a row.

The Cambuslang-based firm retained the ‘Contractor of the Year, Damp and Timber Treatment’ title at The Property Care Association’s Best Practice Awards.

The firm also won the ‘Innovation’ prize and two highly commended accolades in the ‘Training and Staff Development’ and ‘Sustainability’ categories.

MD Graham Duncan said, “We are proud to win these prestigious awards and I would like to thank all of our staff who work hard to deliver a quality service. To repeat our success is a fantastic achievement but to also become the first company to achieve UK contractor of the year for three years in a row is testament to our people, process and property care services.”

Stephen Hodgson, chief executive of the PCA added, “It was a record night for Richardson & Starling with their well-deserved victory. The level of professionalism and organisation throughout the company, at every level, is testimony to the hard work and effort of the management and staff.”
