Contractors bolt through zoo redevelopment

It may have taken years to get the go-ahead to redevelop the site of Glasgow’s former zoo into hundreds of homes. But it did not stop groundworks contractors Advance Construction Scotland from having the new water management system installed in just four hours.

Installing the two legs of the 1800mm tank for the Broomhouse development was a first for Advance’s site manager David Wilson and also Tubosider’s new Scotland and north-east England area manager David Kyle (pictured).

Though David Kyle’s attendance was all part of the service, it was just to check – the Advance team had it all set up for them, from on-time delivery to clear information on connecting the prefabricated section and backfilling the finished tank.

Advance has used Tubosider before, and we found the whole thing completely straightforward – a handy, well-constructed system to give us a different dimension, plus the benefit of good ground to work with,” says David Wilson.

Backing competitively priced, specification-driven solutions with such good personal service is exactly what drew David Kyle to Tubosider – straight from years of business and product development with one of our competitors.

41 year old David has worked in construction contracting and improvement all his career, and sees business in Scotland continuing the recovery it’s had over the last two years.

Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Inverness are all clearly areas where Tubosider has a lot to offer, particularly as we develop solutions for yet more needs in water management.

What sets apart Tubosider is having the technical expertise to meet any spec with often inventive options that are not just competitive, but profitable to manufacture,” he says.
