Paisley contractor reaches £100m turnover milestone

PAISLEY-based Clark Contracts has recorded a record turnover of £100 million for the year ended October 2022.

The business, which is celebrating its 45th year of trading in 2023, cited several key projects as contributing to the success, including the £20 million design and build of a  modular student accommodation scheme on Edinburgh’s London Road, a £4 million industrial development at Langland’s Commercial Park for Knight Property Group, the construction of Ian MacLeod Distillers’ new HQ in Broxburn, and the fit-out of office space at 200 Broomielaw in Glasgow.

Clark also worked on a number of projects secured via the contractor’s minor works framework appointments, from customers including the University of Glasgow, University of Strathclyde and NHS National Services Scotland.

Employing over 240 employees, Clark Contracts welcomed 19 new recruits to its training academy during the year. The firm revealed it has also recently invested in a bespoke leadership and development programme, and mental health awareness training.

MD Gordon Cunningham said, “As we enter our 45th year in business, we want to build on this, and target continued growth. We received a record number of orders in October last year, which has ensured a strong start to our 2022/23 financial year. We have a good client base, and are working across various sectors, which helps support this growth.”
