MEC Major Developments In Aberdeen | KIER
Marshall Errock Construction Ltd, Masonry Brick and Blockwork Specialists have a long history of carrying out major developments in the beautiful City of Aberdeen.
We were chosen to deliver a state-of-the-art academy in Aberdeen the £47M South of the City School in Aberdeen, by the UK’s largest construction Group Balfour Beatty;
This for 1,350 pupils, alongside learning provision, dance studio, fitness suite, games hall, six lane swimming pool, an adjacent garden and 3G pitch.
It truly is a fantastic new educational facility.
An excellent academy which provides a strong focal point for the local community, in an exciting modern environment within which students can thrive.”
We were delighted therefore, on completion of Lochside Academy to be awarded from another major project from one of the UK’s top 3 Main Contractors, Kier.
This to deliver;
POWIS PLACE STUDENT ACCOMODATION.
This is a six-storey building which accommodates nearly 200 students in a mixture of en-suite rooms in shared apartments and a selection of single studios.
The sculptural massing of the design features a sheltered forecourt addressed by glazed common room and reception areas.
Beneath the internal courtyard garden parking spaces for 70 bicycles and 20 cars are provided.
This went onto to win National acclaim at the London Brickwork Awards, of which Marshall Errock Construction Ltd “cemented” its reputation as one of Aberdeen’s finest Masonry Brick and Blockwork contractors on the City’s largest schemes.
In 2020, Marshall Errock Constructions Ltd (MEC), were appointed by CHAP’s to deliver a vast Multi-Stage Development at Summerhill, with a 3-year program delivery period.
CHAPS are widely known In the North of Scotland as a brand that stands for excellence in the construction industry.
As a result of working together with a marvellous and talented team at CHAP and MEC, the next phase has been brokered and commenced on a former academy site, which makes it a brownfield development fully appreciative of surrounding countryside and wildlife habitat.
All credit to Aberdeen Council who have taken extra-ordinary steps to maintain a healthy environmental policy, whilst delivering quality homes.
We are thrilled to progressing yet another phase of the housing project through partnership working.
At Summerhill we want to get the very best outcomes for new residents and the wider area.
The construction contract has a comprehensive programme of Community Benefits, including apprenticeships and early learning activities.
The Council’s Combined Heat and Power Scheme – which uses waste heat from electricity generation – will help keep fuel bills down as well as promoting sustainable living.
All properties will be fitted with “Full Fibre To The Premises” optical cables and a separate duct to increase digital connectivity options.
