About Us

Established for over 10 years Alan Gow Groundwork are specialists in groundwork, concrete work and building and renovation work

After several years solid experience employed as a Maintenance Engineer, a young Alan Gow identified a gap in the local construction market for an ambitious company specialising in works below ground level. He was sure that, providing a fast-response quality service to private and commercial clients, he could establish a presence in the Highlands area.
With this can-do approach to any construction challenge, and backing this attitude with modern plant, highly-trained certificated staff and his own personal attention, this locally-established company has responded to the demands of high-profile clients across a wide spectrum and geographical area, having operated successfully across the Highlands and as far as Elgin.
From early days concentrating on work up to DPC level, the demand for quality above-ground construction and our ability to respond to changing markets has seen us successfully diversify into steelwork and traditional build structures above ground as well.
