Hardies assists Midlothian Council’s sustainability drive with £90m worth of construction projects
Hardies Property & Construction Consultants is assisting Midlothian Council with its sustainability drive with Passivhaus and Net Zero Carbon goals following its appointment to deliver 20 construction projects with a combined construction value of £90 million.
The firm is providing project management and quantity surveying services to projects comprising a range of housing, mixed-use developments, education sector work and the leisure sector, notably the development of Midlothian Snowsports Centre into Destination Hillend, an all-year-round, multi-activity leisure facility.
Hardies partner Murray Warner said: “We are delighted to secure this contract to provide our services across these projects to Midlothian Council, a client with which we have developed a positive and productive working relationship over the years.
“As a company, we are firmly embedded within the Midlothian area. Indeed, Laura Falconer, one of our graduate surveyors, was inspired to pursue a career in construction with an offer of a placement at Hardies following a careers event at Newbattle High School in Easthouses, Dalkeith in 2015.
“Laura recently graduated with a first-class degree in Quantity Surveying from Edinburgh Napier University and is presently working within our team of twenty surveyors at our Edinburgh city centre offices on a number of these projects.”
Hardies is scheduled to deliver the 20 projects for Midlothian Council over the next two-year period.
