HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants has provided quantity surveying and principal designer services to New Pilmour House, the new headquarters for St Andrews Links Trust, Fife.
Already the recipient of a Scottish Design Award and the St Andrews Preservation Trust Pride of Place Award it is also shortlisted for the RIAS/RIBA Awards and the Civic Trust Awards and has now been commended in the Scottish Property Awards 2023.
The state-of-the-art building, designed by multi award winning Architect’s Nicoll Russell Studios, provides St Andrews Links Trust with a two-storey building that serves as an office hub for more than 50 staff working across a range of different operational disciplines.
This provides the Links Trust staff with open-plan offices, meeting spaces and dedicated areas for the training and development of more than 400 permanent and seasonal staff employed by the Trust 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.”
Hardies has recently opened new offices in Belfast, Leeds, and London, which take its office network to 13 locations throughout the country and forms the first phase of an expansion strategy executed on the back of a series of national major successful project wins across the UK and Ireland over recent years.
