Award-winning Doig & Smith, one of the UK’s biggest and most successful construction consultancy practices, has appointed Ayr-based creative agency Paligap to take over its marketing communications strategy.

Established 70 years ago, Doig & Smith has expanded in size and in service provision, and now has branches in Glasgow, Edinburgh and London as well as many site branches in varied locations throughout the UK.

Today Doig & Smith is a fully integrated firm of Chartered Surveyors offering services and specialist skills including Quantity Surveying, Project Management, Facilities Management and Construction Law.

Its list of clients and portfolio of projects are impressive by any standard. Doig & Smith were involved in high profile projects such as the build of the Royal Bank of Scotland’s World Headquarters in Edinburgh, Heathrow’s new East Terminal and the redevelopment of Glasgow International Airport’s Terminal Building. Their other major clients include Scottish Media Group, Radisson Hotel Group, Edinburgh University, Goodrich Corporation and Rolls Royce.

Paligap has now been selected by Doig & Smith to take over the company’s design and marketing communications. Partnering with Bright PR in Glasgow, Paligap has been commissioned to roll out a new corporate identity for the company at the beginning of September. Work is already well underway, and senior partners at Doig and Smith have already given the thumbs-up to initial concepts.

Paligap’s remit will include redesigning all internal and external communications, advertising, exhibition management and the build of a new company website.

Paligap managing director Stephen Cosh commented: "We are delighted to win such a major contract, and look forward to a long relationship with Doig & Smith. Our role will be to ensure the development of the new Doig & Smith brand, and making sure that they retain their high profile across every platform. Being selected by yet another national company is further confirmation that you don’t have to be in the city to provide world- class solutions and service."

Founded in 1999, Paligap has become one of Scotland’s premier full service marketing and creative agencies.

Paligap handle all elements of the communications mix covering branding, press, radio, TV and outdoor advertising, public relations and direct marketing, internet and print.

Paligap account director Graeme Niven said: "Our sole reason for existence is to boost our client’s business.

"Our proven track record has ensured that the agency has built up an impressive client list, which includes numerous organisations of all sizes and from every sector."
