Rok wins £11m worth of Highland contracts

Rok has won a string of contracts in the Highland region worth more than £11 million.

The first contract is a £7.2 million award from Lochalsh and Skye Housing Association to build 77 new homes at Portree, which will be completed in late 2010 and will be an important housing expansion for the island.

The firm has also won a £3.5 million job from the Carnegie Club to provide a state of the art new swimming pool at Skibo Castle in Sutherland. It is due for handover in September 2009.

Highlands and Islands Enterprise have awarded Rok a £700,000 order to build a new office unit at Dunoon, Argyll, with completion in spring 2009.

A new team has won these awards and will drive forward Rok growth in the Highlands.

Scott Alexander, who last year became head of the civil engineering division, has been appointed Inverness regional leader (director) in charge of both construction and civils for the 900 employees Rok have in the Highlands out of 1,300 in Scotland.

Neil Duncan has been promoted to North construction manager. He started work as a technician and worked his way through site manager and contracts manager.
