Independent building surveyors Watts Group are enjoying a strong start to 2016 after securing a significant contract with East Lothian Council.

The deal generated by its Edinburgh office, will see them carry out condition surveys and disability audits on over 200 Council-run properties including schools, town halls, public parks, libraries and cemeteries.

The East Lothian Council success builds on a significant contract win last year from one of the UK’s largest High Street food retailers, to conduct asset management surveys on over 2,000 properties UK-wide.

Commenting on the latest contract win, Andrew Murray, the director in charge of Watts Edinburgh, said: “The East Lothian Council success is the perfect start to 2016.  We are particularly pleased to have succeeded in the very demanding public procurement contract sector. ‘’

“We have a clear vision and strategy for the future and the appointments of both Gordon and Michael will help us drive forward the brand and concentrate on future business development.”
