Hardies are growing in Dunfermline

Having experienced a period of sustained business growth, Hardies Property & Construction Consultants in Dunfermline has taken on two new members of staff, as well as promoting two existing surveyors into more senior roles.

Stewart Arbuckle, formerly Associate Building Surveyor, who has been with Hardies for 13 years has been promoted to Senior Associate Building Surveyor, whilst Graham Rolfe, a Senior Quantity Surveyor for the past 12 years, is now Associate Quantity Surveyor.

The two new appointments see Phil Walker join Hardies as a Quantity Surveyor. Phil, from Dunfermline, has extensive experience on the contracting side, having worked with JB Bennett Construction and Morrison Construction. His experience and insight brings new skills to the Hardies Quantity Surveying team.

Also joining the firm is Gordon Howie, from Edinburgh, who is appointed Principal Designer and Health & Safety Advisor. In the earlier stages of his career as an Architect Gordon worked with AMCA Architects before choosing to focus his career on Construction Health & Safety, when he then went on to work for CMist.

Commenting on the appointments and promotions, Danny McArthur, Partner at Hardies Dunfermline office said: “As a major firm in the industry it is vital for us to continually develop our staff and to bring in new talent to keep up with the growth of the firm. The promotion of Stewart and Graham is very well deserved. Both are long standing and highly respected members of our team.

“I am also delighted with the new appointments of Phil and Gordon. They are joining the firm at a very exciting time whereby new doors and opportunities are presenting themselves all the time as Hardies become more recognised as big players with big capabilities and reach. We are fast becoming the “go to firm” of choice.”

Hardies Dunfermline is currently involved with a number of projects all over Scotland and recently completed work on the major refurbishment and extension of Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire. A full scope of service was provided for the ambitious project, from project management to quantity surveying, to a Principal Designer service and full Clerk of Works cover. The firm is hoping it will work with the Trump Organisation again in the near future.
