An Aberdeenshire architect-led construction firm is expanding into Glasgow to provide home extensions to the Central Belt.

Dab Den, based in Banchory, said the new office will “offer all the services currently provided in the north east”.

It also noted that since its establishment eight years ago its work has doubled year-on-year, with its ten-strong team recently completing its 30th project.

The firm was set up by Katherine and Kerr Byers, aiming to give customers more control over building projects, covering “everything from the architectural design, right through to completion.”

Katherine Byers said: “We started off building garden rooms for homes in the Aberdeenshire area and the business has really grown from there.

“We’re now also creating house extensions and homes both in the north east and across the central belt, so it makes sense to open our next office in Glasgow.

“Our one-stop shop service means that customers have the benefit of having an architect onsite throughout the project until handover, which increases the quality of the build, and is often too costly in a small project.”

The firm said it is looking to boost its growth, setting three-year project targets and using local suppliers.
