Hardies Property & Construction Consultants, a firm with a whole century of experience, having celebrated 100 years in business in 1913, is Scotland’s largest multi discipline surveying firm with 14 offices throughout the country.
From its offices at Pitreavie Court in Dunfermline the firm offers extensive services and advice for local clients particularly in the domestic market. Hardies provide a “one stop shop” service, with staff specialising in a number of areas such as Valuation Surveying, Project Management, Energy Performance certificates and Building and Quantity Surveying. Hardies is committed to providing a high quality service to everyone no matter the size of the project.
The firm recently appointed a new Associate Valuation Surveyor in Paul Duncan. Paul, who has worked in the Fife area since 1994 has extensive knowledge and experience of the Fife property market with particular emphasis in the residential sector where he inspects and values properties on a daily basis for the purposes of providing Home Reports for properties for sale and valuation reports for lenders and private individuals. Paul also provides Residential EPC’s (Energy Performance Certificates) whenever required.
Says Partner Danny McArthur: “We are keen to spread awareness of the Hardies name in our local domestic market across all of West Fife. We believe we bring a great deal to the table for residential clients in Fife.
Other members of the team include Alan Chappell, a Senior Quantity Surveyor who has relocated from the Perth office to strengthen the Quantity Surveying team in the Dunfermline office. Alan is originally from Fife and knows the area very well and brings with him specialisms in housing, health and education projects where his cost and contract knowledge add much value for clients.
Based in the Dunfermline office at The Signature Building in Pitreavie Industrial Estate but covering all of the Hardies offices, Ross Sutherland, Hardies IT Manager, can be seen driving a distinctive Hardies white van, which the firm also use for corporate events and other similar activities.
Local people will also see the Hardies name frequently in and around Dunfermline as the firm is currently enjoying a busy spell with both residential and commercial property and construction projects.
“The former Cottage Inn on Aberdour Road is a very well known building in the town and we provided Project Management, Quantity Surveying and CDM Co-ordination on the building for a year, overseeing the full renovation of the building, part of which is now occupied by Inglis Vets as a Pet Wellness Centre,” said Danny McArthur. “The other half of the building is currently being fitted out as a restaurant and we are seeking tenants for this facility which enjoys a good central location with a car park at the rear.”
Hardies is also acting as the agent for the sale of South Fod Farmhouse and its development site on Linburn Road.
“We are currently increasing our market share in all sectors. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have an issue you think we can help with, whether it’s advice on home improvements; extensions or conversions, valuations, poor workmanship issues or structural concerns,” said Danny McArthur.Back to News
