Order book fills for Scottish M&E specialist


Castle Building Services Organisation has nearly doubled its annual turnover to £38m and booked £11m of new contracts in the past two months.

Castle is a building services design and installation specialist based in East Kilbride.

It has been appointed by main contractor Morrison Construction to provide mechanical and electrical services on four major build projects across both the education and community facilities sectors.

In North Ayrshire, Castle has been appointed to work on the new Largs Community Campus, a project being delivered under the Hub South West framework. The campus, which has been designed by JM Architects with building services consultant Ramboll, has the latest renewable energy technologies to achieve a BREEAM rating of Very Good. Castle will use building information modelling to achieve a project completion date early in 2018.

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

Finally, Castle will install M&E services on The Quay Zone, a leisure centre under construction at Girvan Harbour.

“We have 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,” said director Derek Reid. “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.”

Largs Community Campus, which will be delivered in one phase, will complete March 2018, with Dailly, Tarbolton and Carrick Leisure all due for handover by March 2017. Castle is also on site with Morrison Construction at Greenfaulds High School in Cumbernauld.
