McGill and Dundee City Council are set to renew their longstanding relationship with the award of a contract to install wireless fire alarms at council-owned properties across the city.

Main contractor McGill, which was established in Dundee in 1981 and is one of the city’s largest employers, has enjoyed a successful relationship with Dundee City Council for much of that time. Over 25 years, McGill’s Fire and Security Division has completed a number of contracts on behalf of the council, including installation and maintenance of warden call systems, door entry systems, and smoke alarms.

This new contract award, which will see McGill install new wireless fire alarm systems in council properties due to the recent change in Scottish government legislation, sees a resumption of the relationship between the facilities management and the council.

Speaking of the contract award and McGill’s relationship with Dundee City Council, Head of Fire and Security Billy Robertson commented, “McGill Fire and Security has always worked well with Dundee City Council, and we have successfully completed a huge amount of work for them over more than two decades. Our reputation as the go-to partner for public sector bodies continues to grow, and we’re absolutely delighted to be working with the council once again.”

McGill Chief Executive Officer Errol Lawrie added, “Since McGill’s acquisition by United Capital, and now that we’ve seen the end of the pandemic and associated restrictions, McGill continues to go from strength to strength. We’re the partner of choice when it comes to councils and social landlords, and our Fire and Security Division has a well-deserved reputation for its expertise and first-class customer service.
