David Cairns

ROBERTSON has announced the completion of a £4.6 million project at Seafield Depot in Edinburgh that will provide welfare accommodation and refuse vehicle parking for the local council.

Procured through Scape Group’s National Major Works framework, Robertson Central built a two-storey modular welfare block, a steel-framed vehicle building and 34 canopy bays. Robertson Civil Engineering also got involved, removing previous infrastructure and creating new drainage and infrastructure.

David Cairns, managing director at Robertson Central said, “Together with our colleagues in our civil engineering business, we delivered work of the highest quality and the refreshed depot will meet the needs of the Council. This is one of a number of projects we are delivering in Edinburgh through Scape’s Major Works framework, all of which are helping to bring real benefits to the city.”

Mark Robinson, Scape Group chief executive added, “It is important that facilities such as these are built and maintained to the best possible standard to allow the Council to operate efficiently, which is why it is great to see this project come to fruition.

“The fantastic work being produced between Robertson and The City of Edinburgh Council is testament to the strong relationship they have established and I look forward to seeing the results unfold from the other projects currently underway across Edinburgh.”
