 “In recent months, our team has secured a series of significant regional and national contracts across the UK. From schools and medical centres to retail developments and another civil engineering bridge project in Bristol, these works not only showcase our wide ranging expertise but signify the hard work performed daily by our pre-construction and contracts team,” said Mark Bowen, Managing Director at Andrew Scott Ltd.

Andrew Scott’s recent projects include the redevelopment and extension of a maintenance depot on behalf of Western Power Distribution, the design and build of the Porthcawl Maritime Centre, the design and construction of a two-storey primary care centre in Porthcawl, the construction of a seven unit retail development in Barnstaple, the development of the St Phillips Footbridge for Bristol City Council, refurbishment of the existing Church Street retail development in Cardiff, and the redevelopment of the former British Legion site in Mumbles into a new Marks & Spencer store and residential building.

As well as their work across commercial and residential markets, Andrew Scott Ltd’s experience within the education sector has seen them secure a variety of contracts.

 “We have been awarded the full scale refurbishment and partial new build of Dan y Coed Autistic School in Mumbles, a project that will see the creation of a safe learning and support environment for Autistic Spectrum Conditions (ASC) pupils. Our working relationships with key local authorities across South Wales has also resulted in the design and construction of two new primary schools in Llanelli and Swansea, namely Ysgol Dewi Sant and Gorseinon Primary School. The confidence in the Scott brand from all sectors only enhances our proud reputation, and we look forward to continuing to deliver the developments that satisfy our customers and push the boundaries of innovation,” concluded Mark.
