Codona's Project

Back in the workshop this week and (finally) fabricating the remaining steel for the Codona's Go Kart project. The photos here are of 250x15mm track edging, rolled to various radii to suit the design of the track in various lengths, then drilled and countersunk for bolting together on site, before being sent for galvanising. It has been a pleasure working with the team at Codonas and we would like to wish them every success for the reopening of their Amusement Park - hopefully in the very near future.

Social Distancing Template

We had a rather unusual request from a local primary school last week, who asked if we could help them make a template to remind the children about social distancing. After settling on the design, we ran the CAD file through the plasma to produce this! The template will be used across the Ellon School Network.

New Office

New Office

Work has started on our new office in Newburgh. We have been using the opportunity of time in the past few weeks to plan ahead and get this building just right for our team. Using a few key members of staff and ensuring safe working practices in line with Covid risk management guidelines, we have managed to kick start the project so our support team have comfortable and fresh facilities to return to later this year.

Note to local young people interested in construction: If you would like to arrange a (socially distant) site visit to observe various phases of this build and kit out, please contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
