The Clark Contracts directors

CLARK Contracts has recorded a record month for the business after securing over £30 million of new orders.

The Paisley-based contractor revealed the work includes the £8 million design and build of a new industrial unit within Belgrave Logistics Park in Bellshill for Knight Property Group. Clark recently worked with Knight to deliver the £4 million design and build of an industrial unit within Langlands Commercial Park, East Kilbride, and the £5 million refurbishment of office space at 4-5 Lochside Avenue in Edinburgh.

Clark Contracts has also been awarded two contracts from Falkirk Council, the first of which is the £7 million construction of new social housing in Polmont, which will deliver 28-units across a mixture of terraced houses and flats. The second order is for the refurbishment and extension of Maddiston Primary School.

Elsewhere, The City of Edinburgh Council has awarded the business the £3 million construction of the new Ratho Early Years Centre and Library.

Further orders include the conversion of an existing hotel in Aberdeen to create a 107-bed student accommodation development, the refurbishment of retail units within Braehead Shopping Centre, roof replacement works at Lanthorn Community Education Centre for West Lothian Council, and electrical upgrades within St Patrick’s Primary School in Shotts for North Lanarkshire Council.

Clark has also bagged a £400,000 contract for the refurbishment of existing warehouse space in Irvine, for North Ayrshire Council, which will create training and demonstration space for the University of Strathclyde.

In addition to these projects, the contractor has been appointed to Link Group’s main contractor framework for new build housing, which will run for the next four years including a range of projects of varying size and tenure.

Gordon Cunningham, MD at Clark Contracts, said, “It is fantastic to secure these new contracts, with both new and existing customers, which has given us a strong start to our financial year.”
