Bathgate firm secures new contracts totalling £10 million

ASHWOOD Scotland has confirmed a raft of new contract wins as the firm prepares to celebrate its 20th birthday.

The Bathgate-based firm said deals totalling £10 million have been secured with clients including City of Edinburgh Council, University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh Zoo and National Records of Scotland.

Ashwood will undertake works at three of Edinburgh’s primary schools. These have been awarded following the start of works at West Register House – home to the National Archives – in Edinburgh’s Charlotte Square. This project will include restoration of the external fabric and iconic copper dome.

Meanwhile, similar heritage projects have been completed at the Scottish National Portrait Gallery and The University of Edinburgh’s Old College campus.

Ashwood has also commenced the construction of a new enclosure for giraffes at Edinburgh Zoo, which follows on from the completion of a new facility for the giant pandas.

MD Archie Meikle said, “Since starting out in a single person office 20 years ago, we have turned over in excess of £100 million and completed over 400 projects. This latest set of contracts is testament to the quality of our staff and workmanship and we are excited by our plans to further grow and develop the business.”
