Helping the community

During our work we were involved in various activities with the local community, including donations for local nurseries and charities; providing learning opportunities to Robert Gordon University Students and careers guidance to St Machar academy pupils.

For Aberdeen Science Centre’s Summer of Engineering, we held ‘Robertson Family days’ events. The aim was to entice the next generation into the construction industry. It was a huge success with over 400 people through the door over the two days and over 27 activities that took place.

In addition, our contract for the supply of mattresses for the project gave security and support to Glencraft, a social enterprise that provides employment for visually impaired people.


Modern accommodation

The accommodation provides modern facilities for Aberdeen students and offers excellent accessibility to the city centre and is within walking distance of the Aberdeen University’s city campus. It is within easy reach of a sports village.
