“Advance Construction (Scotland) Limited carried out their first groundworks contract for Cruden Building & Renewals Limited in 1998 and since then have completed, or are working on 36 projects the total value of which will be in excess of £30million.
The groundworks packages have ranged in value from £100,000 to £3million plus and have in the main been social/private housing projects, although they also carried out the groundworks at our new office. Without exception they have completed their works package either on programme, or ahead of programme and to a very high standard. The works have been completed within tight cost constraints and the final accounts have been agreed timeously and without dispute.
Advance Construction (Scotland) Limited are a professionally managed company with excellent procedures including health & safety and we look forward to a continuing working relationship with them as one of our key groundworks sub contractors.”
“Advance Construction have been working for us, CALA Homes East, on one of our prestigious developments, Fairmilehead Edinburgh for the last two years.
This development was previously a brown field site as it was a very large Scottish Water treatment plant for the Southern part of the City of Edinburgh.
Works commenced by Advance Construction included demolition and removal of the existing underground water treatment facilities, open air treatment tanks, removal, cut and fill regrade operations, sewer, road and infrastructure package operations to get us to a point where we could commence house build operations.
Advance Construction have carried out this 3.5 million project with ease and have proven their capability in tackling civil engineering packages of this scale.”
“We have appointed Advance Construction as Principal Contractor on several of our projects over the past 1O years. This is generally at the early stages of a construction project where we pass them the legal responsibilities of the role under the COM Regulations.
They are a fully aware of their legal duties and are competent in addressing health and safety issues. They plan, manage and monitor the construction phase and ensure that all contractors are kept fully informed of programme and safe working practices. The role also includes the provision of welfare and security facilities and again Advance Construction carry this out with diligence.
We have been very satisfied with this arrangement and will have no hesitation in appointing Advance Construction again as Principal Contractor where appropriate.”
