Muir has undertaken a number of projects in the housing sector on behalf of Kingdom Housing Association, Grosvenor, Fairmur, GSH, Almond Housing Association and Charleston Developments.

The team has worked for a range of clients including D F Wishart & Co Ltd, John Dewar & Son Ltd, Stuarts Properties Ltd, Wellbeck Land Ltd, Howden Joinery, Warburtons Bakery and Caledonian Land.

Constructing educational establishments and undertaking refurbishments of organisations is something Muir Construction prides themselves on. Intelligent Finance, Fife Council, Unicorn Property Group, Reedhycalog, Angus Council, East Ayrshire Council, Buccleuch Estates, Scottish Courage, EDI and
DSA are just some of the customers Muir has worked for since their inception.

The leisure sector has provided Muir with a number of partnering and negotiated contracts, with long-term relationships developed with major clients including Bass plc and Whitbread plc to build a number of restaurants, pubs and hotels.

Muir have been instrumental in the construction of numerous Travel Inns, Holiday Inns and Bingo Halls.

Muir’s office and commercial portfolio has remained very strong in the last ten years. Their reputation in the field has won a number of key contracts from new and repeat clients including Rosyth Europarc Business Park, Castle Business Park, Fairways Business Park, Shawfair Business Park, Hillington Business Park, Orchardbank Business Park and Almondvale Business Park.

The firm’s most current business park development is Aberdeen Gateway. Acting as the main contractor Muir Construction began to strip the site in March 2008 as well as undertaking an archaeological investigation throughout the advance of site works.

The boundaries adjoining the nearby housing development and public areas were screened from view by temporary topsoil mounding, which also assisted with noise pollution. The remaining boundaries were fenced to stop uncontrolled access and pollution prevention measures were installed in conjunction with SEPA.

In May 2008 the onsite team undertook cut and fill works before carrying out infrastructure works on the main site. The DSA Training Facility progressed in the South West Corner of the site adjacent to the protected moss nature area and in October the main infrastructure works and DSA development had completed.

The team then moved on to working on the existing carriageway roundabout connection and road upgrade which was completed by December.

Ground works for the first of the offices were then undertaken.

The development now comprises a 1,950 sq ft office and yard, a 33,470 square foot office, warehouse and yard, as well as another office and production space.
