Building preservation specialist launches Inverness base

Graham Duncan

RICHARDSON and Starling is creating seven new jobs to service its new office in Inverness.

The building preservation firm is searching for five technicians and a property surveyor to join an administrator who is already in place.

The new premises will service Inverness and the Highlands and takes the company’s branch network to 13 across Scotland and the north of England.

Richardson & Starling managing director Graham Duncan said, “There is a strong market for our services in Inverness and the Highlands with a high demand to use local-based companies. Until now we have serviced the area from our Elgin office but we are keen to work more closely with local suppliers, so setting up an Inverness office was the next obvious step for us.”

Richardson & Starling is part of the Veitchi Group and has been providing preservation services since 1935.
