Richardson and Starling celebrate trade title hatrick – Building preservation company picks up collection of awards at trade body ceremony


Scotland’s largest building preservation company, Richardson and Starling, has won a national trade body’s contractor of the year title for a record third successive year.

The Cambuslang-based organisation retained the ‘Contractor of the Year, Damp and Timber Treatment’ title at The Property Care Association’s Best Practice Awards held last month at The Slate, University of Warwick.

The firm also walked away with the ‘Innovation’ title as well as two highly commended accolades in the ‘Training and Staff Development’ and ‘Sustainability’ categories.

“We are proud to win these prestigious awards and I would like to thank all of our staff who work hard to deliver a quality service.” Commented Richardson and Starling’s managing director, Graham Duncan.

“To repeat our success is a fantastic achievement but to also become the first company to achieve UK contractor of the year for three years in a row is testament to our people, process and property care services.”

Stephen Hodgson, chief executive of the PCA, added: “It was a record night for Richardson & Starling with their well-deserved victory.

“The level of professionalism and organisation throughout the company, at every level, is testimony to the hard work and effort of the management and staff.”

Richardson and Starling is the largest company in the Veitchi Group with 12 offices and has been providing property care services since 1935.

Earlier this month the Veitchi Group revealed its latest financial results which saw turnover increase by 7% to £41.55m and Group profits after tax rise to £1.26m in the period to November 2017.
