Mulholland Contracts Ltd worked in conjunction with the client and consultant engineers to deliver a stunning development of executive dwellings on the site of the old City Hospital in Edinburgh.
This multi million pound project was completed to the satisfaction of the client with regard to cost , programme, site safety and build quality.
Mulholland Contracts role included the construction of roads, sewers, multiple foundation solutions, drainage structures, substructures, service installation and externals.
This project involves the redevelopment of the old British Leyland works for private housing. Mulholland have been working with several developers and their consultants to co-ordinate and construct a diverse range of homes.
The developers represented by Mulholland Contracts on this project include: David Wilson Homes, Persimmon Homes, Strathclyde Homes Taylor Woodrow Developments and Walker Group.
This site was a challenge due to the poor and diverse properties of the existing soils and involved several foundation solutions, not to mention gas remediation and peat removal. The combined value of work carried out by Mulholland Contracts is expected to be in excess of £50 million.
Mulholland Contracts have been involved in this ambitious project for some years now and have succesfully worked with Taylor Woodrow Developments , Barratt, Miller, Ogilvie, Redrow, Persimmon, Charles Church and Bellway.
This huge area of previously undeveloped land offered an array of civil engineering challenges including retainment of adjacent ground, piling, dewatering, split level units, recycling of rock and management of soils. The Eastern Expansion is an ongoing project which Mulholland will continue to be involved with.
