CASTLE Building Services has appointed David Mathieson as senior quantity surveyor.

David, who is originally from Paisley, previously held the position of senior quantity surveyor at Arc-Tech Scotland for almost five years.

Castle Building Services operates across the UK and David will focus his activities around the Edinburgh and Glasgow offices.

The move follows the announcement of a number of new starters in recent months, in varying positions across the business.

Castle MD Andrew Dawson said, “We warmly welcome David to the business. He joins at a time of continued growth and has the experience to add real value to our clients. It is our aim to continue to recruit and retain high quality employees and offer career opportunities across all levels of the business.

“We currently have 46 direct employees working throughout Scotland and we continue to win work as a result of our commitment to building lasting relationships with clients and by creating sustainable career opportunities for all our people.”

David Mathieson added, “I join Castle Building Services at an exciting time. I was attracted to the role because it has a good reputation and clear progression routes in place for employees to continue their personal progression.”

The increase in head count follows the company’s appointment to projects including its role as principal contractor for the PragmatIC Park electronics facility in Durham.

The firm’s portfolio of education-based projects across Scotland includes the £60 million Winchburgh Academy, which features four buildings, developed on a 13-hectare site providing facilities for 4,000 students. The company is working with Morrison Construction on behalf of West Lothian Council.

Morrison has also appointed Castle Building Services to the £14 million new build campus for West Lothian’s Beatlie School, which will provide education for pupils aged between three and 18 years of age with severe and complex educational needs and profound medical needs.

The company is also working with Kier Construction on behalf of East Ayrshire Council on the build of Netherthird Primary School, Cumnock, which will have the capacity for 278 pupils.
