Leading interior fit-out and refurbishment company Worksmart Contracts have opened their third UK office in Edinburgh.

With eighteen years’ experience in Commercial Interiors sector Gary is well connected in the property and business world and is looking forward to the challenge:

New Regional Manager, Gary McGurk says: “I believe there is a gap in the market within Edinburgh for a reputable, considerate multi-trade contractor with a genuine East Coast presence.  There is an air of optimism and positivity in the commercial property market in Edinburgh and we believe it is a great time to open an Edinburgh Office.  I was extremely impressed when I met the Directors and the wider team and I am really looking forward to creating a sustainable business over the coming months and years.”

Worksmart’s Managing Director Steve Neilson agrees: “We have been waiting for the right time to launch in Edinburgh and we are delighted to have Gary join the team.  Having been established since 2002 in the West of Scotland, we have seen the commercial fit-out and refurbishment market change dramatically over the years and feel we have the necessary experience and infrastructure to provide a quality multi-trade contracting solution to the Commercial Office, Retail and Industrial sectors in Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.  We launched our Manchester office 18 months ago and have seen the office go from strength to strength and we are confident Edinburgh will be as successful.”

The office situated at Princes House, 5 Shandwick Place in the city centre will allow the company to build upon their existing UK wide coverage in bespoke Interiors solutions.
