For over 40 years, W M Donald has been providing services to support the majority of the key construction and civil engineering projects within Aberdeen and the North-east of Scotland.
Suction Excavation, Nigg Bay Harbour
W M Donald undertook the excavation of over 38 trial holes along the proposed route of a new 2000m long water main. The main serves Aberdeen’s new Nigg Bay Harbour.
Phase 1 Infrastructure, Countesswells
The remit for this project was far-ranging, as W M Donald was invited to be the principal contractor. This project will bring 3,000 homes across 407 acres to the West of Aberdeen City.
Chapelton of Elsick, Case Study 1
W M Donald was contracted to construct roads as part of the Chapelton of Elsick Development, including a new roundabout at the intersection between the Newtonhill flyover and the A90.
Sewer Diversion, Pittodrie Street
W M Donald was asked to carry out work on, and divert, a Victorian brick sewer in order to build additional student accommodation near Pittodrie Street.
Aqueduct at Milltimber, AWPR
Our team were asked to divert the 800mm diameter gravity and 1200mm diameter pumped aqueducts that feed Aberdeen from the River Dee intakes at Invercannie Waterworks, Banchory.
Prime Four Business Park, Aberdeen
The principal task of this project was to provide access to the development site. This involved reshaping the roundabout to accommodate a third ‘stacking’ lane.
Dunnottar Park, Carron Den, Stonehaven
The first challenge of this project was to provide construction access to the site. The existing bridge on to the site was solely for agricultural use and was deemed unsuitable for construction activities.
Retaining Walls, Chapelton of Elsick
W M Donald was approached to reinforce concrete retaining walls which form the spine of a central retirement block.
Chapelton of Elsick, Case Study 2
W M Donald provided all the enabling works for the site including the construction of a new roundabout, access roads, hard landscaping including extensive use of SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems), construction of a 4km rising main, and access for utilities.
Pre-Survey of Multiple Brownfield Sites
The W M Donald team was contracted by Robertson Partnership Homes to pre-survey multiple Brownfield sites earmarked for social housing developments in Fife.
