We are pleased to welcome the following new colleagues who have joined the Ogilvie Group today.
Ogilvie Construction has broken ground on a £33 million project to build a student residence in Yorkhill, Glasgow, for developers Bricks Developments.
Built on the site of former warehousing at Kelvinhaugh Street, the project will create a 607 bedroom building consisting of three separate blocks of between 5 and 9 storeys constructed above a semi basement parking space.
A new state-of-the-art £8million Jaguar Land Rover retailer site in Aberdeen, operated by Peter Vardy Ltd, is nearing completion, with the stylish, modern exterior now fully constructed. The retailer is on course to open later this year, with a renewed focus on customer service, complete with a luxurious atmosphere befitting the Jaguar and Land Rover brands it will house.
Ogilvie Construction, which last year completed the Porsche Centre Aberdeen nearby, is building the facility. The building has now officially been ‘topped out’, marking the completion of the highest point of the structure; construction will now focus on making the facility wind and watertight, before installing the stylishly appointed interior.
The new retailer in Wellington Road is one of the first custom built Jaguar Land Rover sites to adopt a brand new look and feel that places an even greater emphasis on customer service and luxury.
