New contract awards for Anderson Construction
Anderson Construction has announced the award of a number of new contracts totalling more than £3 million in value.
Despite the much talked about downturn in oil and gas, the Aberdeen firm has secured a variety of new contracts including work transforming the former A C Yule building in Tullos for Simply Self Storage, a conversion of a property in Ellon from office to residential use for Castlehill Housing Association, refurbishment work at the Duthie Park Japanese Pavillion and a substantial new residential property at Burnside, Westhill.
This work is on top of ongoing projects for Camphill Estates, Balmoral Comtec and nearly complete new offices and showroom at Dyce for Calor Gas.
Managing director Kenny Anderson said: “The economic climate is tough in the North-East of Scotland right now but these awards along with our existing workload show that there is a resilience and confidence in the market place going forward. We believe the diversity of work we are involved in is a strength and this along with a workforce of long serving employees provides us with an agility and a skill set that can help us to maximise opportunities as they arise.”
Anderson added: “The work we do is almost always in partnership with local architects, engineers and quantity surveyors with whom we have built positive relationships over the many years since Jim Buchan and I started the business in 1993, these consultants know and understand the needs of Clients as well as the local legislative framework so that, as a team we can deliver projects effectively and efficiently.”
Operating from its headquarters in Northfield, Aberdeen, Anderson Construction is owned and run by Kenny Anderson and Jim Buchan, and directly employs 40 people as well as approximately 35 people through specialist subcontractors.
