Volvo Truck & Bus, Aberdeen
Following a number of successful projects delivered for Volvo Group, Pentaco were asked to tender for a scheme to build an extension and further alterations to the Truck & Bus Depot in Portlethen, 7 miles south of Aberdeen. The scheme was competitively tendered with both Scottish and English contractors pricing the works. Pentaco were successful and were awarded the contract which included demolishing an existing single storey office area and constructing a new, very modern looking two storey extension including underfloor heating, curtain walling and micro-rib cladded facade. The contract also included for the refurbishment of existing workshop bays and extensive external works, all whilst the facility remained fully operation. It was of paramount importance to Volvo that their day to day works were disrupted as little as possible so a carefully planned phasing scheme was implemented by Pentaco Construction which included the temporary re-housing of the Volvo workforce during the contract period. The owners now have an extended office accommodation as well as improved facilities for servicing and repairing HGV’s and buses.
