Council Survey Contract Boost for Consultants

Hardies Property & Construction Consultants said it was on track to achieve £1 million turnover between its Aberdeen and Glasgow offices in 2015-16, and it expects them to double this in the following year: 

The company, which opened its Granite City branch in 2012, is two years into a five-year “masterplan” to develop new markets. 

Its offices in Spademill Lane, Aberdeen, has been bolstered by the firm’s recent appointment to deliver building survey services for Aberdeenshire Council. 

The framework contract is expected to see turnover from Hardies’ north-east operation swell to more than £1 million next year and it has already led to one new job. 

Turnover for the Glasgow office is currently £440-£450,000, with the company expecting this to double next year. 

Hardies managing partner Derek Ferrier said:  “We are delighted with the way these two important offices are performing for us. 

“Through offering residential surveying we have significantly increased our overall turnover.  Now by offering both building and valuation work, and by becoming a framework supplier for Aberdeenshire Council, we are on target to increase our turnover again this year.” 

He added:  “We set a five-year plan to achieve our full potential in both the west and the north-east of Scotland as it takes time to grow and find the right staff. 

“We are strong on valuation surveying services, so tend to start with this as a core business and then widen out to dedicated services like project management, building surveying, quantity surveying and health and safety services. 

“In both locations we are very much here to stay and are establishing ourselves into the business community for each city. 

Hardies serves clients in the private and public sectors with services including property valuation, building and quantity surveying and project management.  It also handles the leasing and sale of commercial and industrial buildings. 

The Edinburgh-based company currently employs more than 100 staff at 14 offices, but it has plans to expand into a UK-wide business.
