Previous commercial projects have included:

 

Hebridean Housing Partnership - Gibson Gardens 

This major contract was awarded to Lewis Builders in september 2012 to complete and finish the Gibson Garden development on behalf of HHP. This project with a value of £3.4 million pounds was one of the largest that the company has completed in recent times.  The works consited of completing a number of 1,2,3 and 4 bedroom apartments in the development. The renewable aspect of the development consisted of installing solar thermal and solar PV.  The heating and hot water requirments are met by gas boilers.

 

Royal Mail 

This contract was awarded with a tight time frame of only 14 weeks for completion. The works consisted of turning an existing builder's merchants store and external yard into a new sorting and delivery office for the Royal Mail, including external vehicle parking and a storage compound. The works were completed and handed over including the H/S manuals on the twelfth week of the contract.

 

Borve Cottages

These cottages are positioned on sloping rocky terrain and involved blasting 4m into the hillside to allow the footprint to sit comfortably within the landscape. The use of rock to encompass the cottages, lends the impression that they have being here for some time. Utilising local turf to cover the roof means the cottages have little visual impact, and they also make use of environmentally friendly air source heat pumps and under floor heating to give an enhancing warmth to the interior, which is further complimented by wood burning stoves for those wild Hebridean nights.

 

Hotel Hebrides

This project entailed extending the rear elevation of the Hotel to accommodate extra rooms together with remodelling existing rooms in order to provide each with en suite facilities. New services were provided throughout the building to provide heating and plumbing again using environmentally friendly air source heat pumps to deliver the required demands.
