In August the company announced it had opened a Glasgow office and it plans to open a Granite City depot this year.
The firm has now won deals for smoke detector contracts with Aberdeen-based Langstane and Castlehill housing associations worth £1.6m.
McGill also has a contract to refurbish 100 bathroom and kitchens for Langstane worth around £100,000.
Chief executive Graeme Carling said: “Recruitment has started already in there for at least six staff and our more senior team will spend time to establish Aberdeen.
“We are looking to set up our base as soon as possible, before the end of the year. We don’t need a big site but we need a presence.”
Mr Carling said major contract wins across Scotland means he thinks the resurrected company, which has just over 50 staff, will have sales in excess of £10m next year.
He said: “We’ve been hiring as we’ve won work. A lot of people who used to work for the old McGill have been hired but we’ve been careful in our recruitment.
