Graham Heath Construction propel welding firm into new era thanks to outstanding build
About the project
Gary Scott, of Shetland-based Scott Welding, approached Graham Heath Construction (GHC) with a plan to upgrade existing buildings for his business on the island. Gary needed an entirely new facility in order to ensure the continued growth, quality and efficiency of his business. 90% of Gary’s business comes from the aquaculture industry but he also receives customers for other kinds of welding work and needed a building that could accommodate this flexibility and diversity. Graham Heath Construction were very helpful with coming up with ideas for the project.
One of the best in the UK
Reflecting on his choice to give his project to GHC, despite the distance between the firm’s HQ and Gary’s own operational base in Shetland, Gary explained that it was the word-of-mouth recommendations that had prompted much of the decision: “A number of people I asked for recommendations spoke highly of the great service and quality that GHC provide. In fact, a number of them said that they were one of the best in the UK!” Deciding to speak to GHC on the back of this high praise, Gary soon discovered that the company could fulfill his needs perfectly and offer building structures that were both practical and attractive – really helping to propel his business forward.
“GHC were able to create a structure that met the demands of my business and after completion I couldn’t be happier with the result. The building has really got me noticed and everyone is talking about it – especially the cornflower blue panels supplied by Steadman’s. It really gives the building something different and creates a striking yet professional appearance.”
Quality beneath the surface
As well as looking good, the building erected by the main contractor on-site, Casey builders of Shetland also worked well from a practical standpoint. The internal steelwork is stronger than conventional industrial units and this really helps to keep everything safe and secure. Should there be any adverse weather conditions the 4m x 4m insulated roller door will provide maximum protection.
“GHC really delivered on their promise when they took on this job and the result is a great looking building that is up to the task. Features like 80mm insulation on the roof, 60mm insulation on the walls and gables, two fire escape doors and an internal ridge beam to hold a crane all contribute to make Graham Heath Construction one of the best in the business.”
As well as the great products, Gary Scott was also impressed with GHC’s customer care as staff went out of their way to make sure he was happy with the end result: “The staff at GHC and their helpfulness were really impressive,” said Gary.
“Their competitive prices, exceptional service and outstanding build quality make them a clear choice when it comes to construction projects of any nature and I would use them again without hesitation.” Gary was also keen to recommend GHC’s services to others.
