Advance Construction are one of our preferred contractors, having secured repeat business from Taylor Wimpey East Scotland over the past 4 years to a value in excess of £15 million.
We have been very impressed with the continued investment Advance have made in their business over the period. The results of which can be seen throughout their business from the people they employ, to their offices, support functions and a significant fleet of plant and equipment.
When dealing with Advance we are met with a very positive attitude and a willingness to work with us to overcome potential issues. From the senior management down to the operatives on site they are keen to assist whenever possible.
We look forward to what will be a long business relationship with Advance and would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
Ironside Farrar are the contract Administrator and Designer for the site preparatory works for a reidential development at Hopefield in Bonnyrigg where Advance Construction are the Principal Contractor. The contract award value is circa £2m and the works include roads infrastructure, foul and surface water drainage, SUDS, management of multi-utility infrastructure, earthworks and the treatment of mineshafts.
The majority of their operatives are directly employed and have the necessary skills to carry out works to a high standard of workmanship. They also have their own extensive plant resource which is well maintained and utilised efficiently.
The works are currently on programme and within budget. There have been no issues in reviewing valuations or additional works, and we would not consider them to be claims conscious.
David R Murray & Associates have worked with Advance Construction on numerous projects over the years. These projects have varied from large residential projects to site specific problem solving on behalf of Advance Construction.
We have always found Advance Construction to be a competent and proactive contractor, with extensive experience both on site and in house, resulting in a benefit to ourselves and our clients.
We would be more than happy to work alongside Advance Construction on projects no matter what size.

When first introduced to Advance Construction Scotland in 2008 as our appointed civils contractor for our current WLPH1 development it was clear from a technical basis that Advance Construction Scotland are far superior in relation to other civils contractors we are currently utilising within the Group.
Advance Construction is a company which works with clients, not against. Should any issues arise weather engineering related or other, it is Advance who bring to the table possible solutions which are typically discussed and agreed with all parties. These solutions may not suit Advance themselves within a financial and contractual element however they impose the best results for ourselves.
It is on that note that I am in a position to make reference to any prospective employers, that to employ this company namely Advance Construction can only enhance and accredit sustainability partnering and team building which in this current climate are vital in securing repeat business and success within our industry.
