Taziker secures Polmadie Depot improvement works contract

TAZIKER has been awarded a contract for the design, installation and commissioning of the Polmadie Depot improvement works in Glasgow.

The multi-disciplinary engineering specialist will work on behalf of Amey to undertake the construction of a new garage building and winter service vehicle wash bay at the site located adjacent to New Rutherglen Road.

The development will comprise of a 60m portal framed wash bay building with glass reinforced plastic washdown gantry as well as a 300m garage building for covered storage.  Taziker will be providing the enabling works, earthworks, approximately 3500m of concrete hardstanding, utilities and drainage, as well as the construction of the washbay and garage structures.

AMEY is the principal contractor for the scheme and is working on behalf of Transport Scotland who own the Polmadie site. Works on site began in April 2021 and Taziker said it will be deploying a site-based team from the local area who have experience delivering multi-disciplinary infrastructure projects.

Neil Harrison, managing director of infrastructure at Taziker said, “We have worked extensively throughout Scotland over the past decade, predominantly within the infrastructure sector and this award shows our continued commitment to supporting the area with our key clients.

“Our people have proven experience in delivering multi-discipline projects, working successfully with our clients.  We are looking forward to working with AMEY to deliver another successful project.”

Taziker announced that it will also be supporting the local community by offering work experience on site via Action for Children. The firm has previously worked with the charity on providing young people with the opportunity to gain valuable skills.

David Field, Scotland regional manager at Taziker, said, “With a regional office in East Kilbride, we can work closely with the site team at Polmadie to ensure the project runs smoothly, safely and to programme. And as with other projects in Scotland, we are working again with Action for Children to offer work experience to local young people and hope to inspire them to begin a career in the construction industry.”
