Minister for Local Government, Housing and Planning, Kevin Stewart MSP, officially opened the new Dundee office of Scotframe Timber Engineering Ltd
The new Dundee office, at 1 Valentine Court, offers the company additional space as it continues to grow, and is also home to a showroom and a new training hub for both employees and customers.
At the opening event, Kevin Stewart toured the facility and met with representatives from Scotframe along with regular customer, Cairnrowan Custom Homes, long term supplier NorDan and local architectural practice Jon Frullani Architect.
Housing Minister Kevin Stewart MSP said: “The Scottish Government wants everyone in Scotland to live in affordable, quality homes that meet their needs. This is central to building and sustaining a fairer and more prosperous Scotland and is why we have committed to delivering at least 50,000 affordable homes, of which 35,000 will be for social rent, by March 2021.
“It has been a pleasure to visit Scotframe today to see this new facility, which demonstrates the company’s continuing commitment to the Scottish housing market.”
Malcolm Thomson, sales director at Scotframe said: “Our new Dundee premises are absolutely pivotal to our growth plans. It was wonderful of Mr Stewart to take the time to open this new office and hear about our plans for future growth.
“We also had the chance to talk to him about our ‘fabric first’ approach to building, which involves ‘designing in’ energy efficiency from the outset of a project, which can dramatically reduce energy costs for future occupiers. We believe it’s one of the best ways to tackle fuel poverty while also future-proofing Scotland’s housing stock.”
