Castle Building Services Nearly Doubles Annual Turnover

Scottish M&E specialist Castle Building Services Organisation has almost doubled its annual turnover to £38 million and booked £11 million of new contracts over the past two months.

The building services design and installation specialist based in East Kilbride has been appointed by main contractor Morrison Construction to provide mechanical and electrical services on four major build schemes across both the community facilities and education sectors.

In North Ayrshire, Castle has been chosen to work on the new Largs Community Campus, a scheme being delivered under the Hub South West framework.

JM Architects designed the campus in conjunction with building services consultant Ramboll. The campus has the latest renewable energy technologies to achieve a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating and Castle will use building information modelling to achieve a project completion date in early 2018.

In the primary education sector, Castle has been appointed to two new build primary schools to replace the existing facilities in Dailly and Tarbolton.

Castle will also install M&E services on the Quay Zone, a leisure centre which is currently being built at Girvan Harbour.

Derek Reid, Director at Castle, said that the company has developed a well earned a reputation as a reliable and responsible local contractor that can be trusted to deliver schemes across many sectors, with much of our work coming from repeat business.

Reid continued: “These latest wins allow us to further demonstrate the depth of in house resource and capability on major projects, as well as our commitment to the areas in which we work and the strength of our links with the local supply chain.

“Each location we are required to work in presents us with challenges, whether it is the waterfront position of The Quay Zone or, for instance, the lack of a gas supply close to Tarbolton Primary. However, thanks to our innovative approach to both the design and installation of building services, we are adept at addressing and overcoming these challenges.”
