Top Scottish building services and all-trades contractor McGill has been awarded a contract to deliver full electrical and security works at a new care village development for Fife Council, continuing the long-standing relationship between the two organisations.

The contract, worth around £500,000, will see the Dundee-headquartered firm complete a range of electrical and specialist security installations over the next 12 months, including fire alarms, nurse and warden call systems, induction loop, CCTV and access controls.

The ground-breaking Methil Care Village, which has been in planning for the past few years, has been lauded as one of the most innovative and creative care facilities offered in Scotland. The village, located on the former Kirkland High School site on Methilhaven Road, includes a two-storey, 36-bedroom residential care home, specific needs housing and a new early years centre.

McGill Fire and Security Manager Billy Robertson commented, “We are delighted to continue our relationship with Fife Council and to be involved in such a prestigious project. The Methil Care Village is a flagship development and demonstrates the commitment of Fife Council to invest in new and innovative projects. My team are excited to get started and play their part, which will see us working right across the sheltered housing development complex.”

This is the latest of many contracts that the firm have delivered for Fife Council over the past 25 years. McGill has installed and maintained warden call systems throughout the kingdom, installed telecare devices, and delivered day-to-day repairs of door entry systems and smoke detectors in sheltered housing properties.
