GDL expands into larger premises

Scottish civil engineering contractor Ground Developments Ltd (GDL) has moved to new premises to accommodate its growth.

In tandem with the move comes a new leadership structure that sees Kevin Mackenzie promoted to managing director and founder Peter Nicholas becoming chairman of the business that he set up in 1998.

GDL has also set up a piling division, headed up by Stuart Cain.

The new 2,800 m2 (30,000 sq ft) facility, just off junction 4A of the M8 near Whitburn, provides better offices and more space to maintain and store GDL’s plant fleet.

New managing director Kevin Mackenzie said: “Our new facility gives our team easy access to our clients’ ground improvement projects across Scotland as well as those south of the border, and it signals our further investment and growth for the business which this year has included the expansion of our piling division and significant investment in key plant machinery to give us one of the best capabilities in our sector.”

Chairman Peter Nicholas said: “This is an extremely exciting period for GDL as the company continues the evolution of our vision to be market leaders within stabilisation, earthworks and ground improvement sectors. We’ve always aspired to be market leaders, and our operation has grown to become one of the UK’s leading specialist ground engineering businesses.”
