New Build

We have vast experience in working with the public and private sectors, including schools. As a family run business trading since 1990, we are committed to working with our customers to provide a service that is top quality, reliable, efficient and cost effective.

So what’s involved with a new build?

Budget

When we receive your quotation request we move to provide a detailed breakdown of costs for each aspect of the work including a full description. 

Design Input

Our AutoCAD Technician and all-round "construction wizard", Duncan Macdonald, has a wealth of experience when it comes to the design and building warrant stages of a project, whether it be social or private housing. 

Planning

At the start of the contract we will provide a programme of works detailing the length of time the build will take and when each aspect of the build will be carried out. 

Technical drawings

Project Management

Our quality management systems are certified and implemented through our teams of project managers, chargehands and experienced tradesmen - right down to the locally employed apprentices.

Alex Murray (Managing Director), Gary Wood (Commercial Manager) and Ian Donald Macdonald (Sites Manager) work effectively to run construction operations, whilst Steven Murray (Project Development & Operations Manager) and John-Ross Murray (Electrical Manager) oversee plumbing & electrical operations. 

Insurance

We are fully insured with Public Liability Insurance and Employer’s Liability Insurance to allow us to carry out projects without the customer having to worry.

Trades

We provide Joiners, Roofers, Bricklayers, Slaters & Roughcasters, Plumbers, Heating Engineers, Electricians, Painters, Tilers, Plasterers and Plant Operators. Any other specialist services can be arranged by us through our contacts.

Kit houses

Kit Houses

Timber frame kit houses are the most common form of new build for a house dwelling in the Western Isles and offer brilliant energy efficiency in comparison with more traditional house types such as block cavity. 

Heating Solutions

Air Source heat pumps are our recommended heating system for a new build house dwelling in the Western Isles. See our website page on air source heat pumps for full details of grant schemes and loans available. 

Kitchens & Bathrooms

We have a wealth of experience in installing kitchens and bathrooms through our continued commercial and domestic contracts over the previous 10-15 years. We work closely with our customers by liaising with our suppliers in order to find the most suitable solutions.
