HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants has revealed its pride in providing quantity surveying and principal designer services to the award-winning New Pilmour House, the new HQ for St Andrews Links Trust, Fife.

Already the recipient of a Scottish Design Award and the St Andrews Preservation Trust Pride of Place Award, the building is shortlisted for the RIAS/RIBA Awards and the Civic Trust Awards and has been commended in the Scottish Property Awards 2023.

The facility, designed by Nicoll Russell Studios, provides St Andrews Links Trust with a two-storey building that serves as an office hub for more than 50 staff. This provides employees with open-plan offices, meeting spaces and dedicated areas for the training and development of more than 400 permanent and seasonal staff employed at the Home of Golf.

Gary Ovenstone, partner and quantity surveyor on the project for Hardies, said, “It was an honour to provide professional services once again to our long-standing client, St Andrews Links Trust. We are very proud with our involvement on what is a real jewel in the crown of the St Andrews Links Estate and we wish them all the success in their new surroundings.

“The project had its challenges not least in that the construction period was interrupted during the pandemic in 2020, however due to the collaborative approach between the consultants, the contractor, Robertson Tayside, and the client, we were delighted to bring the project in on budget.”
