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.
Colorado Construction has been successful in receiving a share of £10m in government funding to boost decarbonisation research and development in distilleries. We are specifically exploring hydrogen and dual hydrogen / biofuel burners for distilleries, and conversion of waste distillery draff and pot ale into a gasification-gas. Read further details here.
We are building a unique vertical distillery on nine levels in Edinburgh. The Port of Leith Distillery will create a one-of-a-kind experience for visitors, showcasing the full whisky life cycle up close.
We have recently launched our Projects Map – a pictorial view of a selection of our projects – take a look.
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 our high level of repeat business. Our remaining workload is secured under selective competitive tender.
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.”
