Colorado Construction is an engineering, construction and finishes business based in Scotland, with a specialisation in listed buildings, bespoke luxury homes, and the design and build of distilleries and visitor centres.
In light of the recent COVID-19 outbreak, from today Colorado Construction and Engineering Ltd has invoked its agile working protocol for our workforce. While our office remains open and operational at this time, we have asked our workforce to follow Government guidance and work from home wherever possible and avoid non-essential travel.
With the UK government moving to delay phase and new updates appearing daily It is likely that very few face-to-face meetings involving more than 3 or 4 people will take place for some weeks or even months. Therefore, our teams have all been briefed, and management communication systems such as email, telephone and Skype are in place to allow our projects to continue.
We are confident that our existing working set up, as well as the additional measures we have taken in preparation for this development, will allow us to continue offering our clients the highest quality services and the necessary and appropriate levels of interaction.
The Construction and Civil Engineering magazine recently ran a short profile on Colorado Construction – read the profile here.
Rising 159 places in the SME300 listing, our recent highest climber award reflects our dedicated approach in focusing on what our clients want and in delivering a consistently high standard on every job. Whether it be a contract for ongoing maintenance and support or a complex multi-million pound project to build a new distillery – such as those at Torabhaig, Inchdairnie or Glen Turner, a new visitor centre or bonded warehouses.
Director Ian Bownes said: “Our success is down to the great team we have at Colorado Construction and Engineering – we aim to deliver above and beyond our customers’ expectations, resulting in over 83% of our business coming from returning customers.”
Distilleries and Visitor Centres
Commercial and Offices
We have recently launched our Projects Map – a pictorial view of a selection of our projects – take a look.
Crabbie’s, now famous for their ginger beer, are to move back into the whisky market, opening a new distillery in Leith.
Colorado will complete the distillery shortly, with a visitors centre opening shortly afterwards. Apparently, this could be the first time spirits have been distilled in Leith for 100 years…
We believe in working in an ‘open book’ manner and aim to provide demonstrable value throughout the construction and engineering process. Our success with this approach, where our people take an ‘ownership’ approach to our projects, is demonstrated by the fact that 85% of our work comes from repeat business. Our remaining workload is secured under selective competitive tender.
