Project: Replacement of existing AC water Mains in villages of Breasclete and Callanish
Client: Scottish Water
Calmax Construction completed the replacement of the existing Water Mains in Breasclete and Callanish on time and on budget. The project was completed to a high standard whilst minimising disruption to Scottish Waters customers in terms of their drinking water supply and their day to day business and use of their land. Delivering a professionally executed and tidy job is vitally important to Calmax Construction Ltd. This is only achievable through careful planning, highly trained and competent staff who understand the importance of site H&S and the H&S of the general public whilst undertaking work of this nature. Regular meetings with engineers and management staff ensure good communication from top to bottom which is essential to delivering successful projects of this nature. During the contract we were in constant dialogue with crofters and residents who were going to be affected by our upcoming works. This gave the cr ofters a plenty notice if they required moving livestock (although not all livestock wanted to miss the action!).
Project: New Yard and Offices
Client: Calmax Construction Ltd
Calmax Construction Ltd are an all trades contractor and also have a civils division which increases our capabilities in terms of the type and size of works we can undertake. We have recently completed our new yard and offices which provides us with a modern energy efficient Head Quarters. The project to relocate the business to a new location required the purchase of suitable land, the stabilization and securing of the site. As a design & Build contractor we were responsible for the design and delivery of the project including the obtaining of Statutory Consent. By utilising Calmax Construction staff and plant the savings achieved allowed us to incorporate some green technologies to reduce our Carbon Foot print. The new building has under floor heating throughout, air source heat pumps and a 5KW wind turbine. The new Office and Yard has facilitated the growth of the business. This significant investment in infrastructure, plant and staff has allowed us to expand our capabilities whilst maintaining our trademark high quality of work.
