BUILDING preservation firm Richardson & Starling has announced the opening of a new office in Hawick.

The new premises in Lochpark Industrial Estate will service Hawick and the Borders and will create five new posts. The Cambuslang-headquartered company is seeking four technicians to join a new property surveyor already in place.

Richard & Starling’s branch network now stands at 14 across Scotland and the north of England. The announcement of the Hawick office follows that of an inverness office in August, which has created seven new posts.

Graham Duncan, managing director of Richard & Starling, commented, “There is a strong market for our services in the Borders with a high demand to use companies who are locally based.

“Our Dumfries office has serviced the area until now but we are keen to work more closely with local suppliers, so setting up a Hawick office was the next obvious step for us.”
