Company Profile

We operate in an industry where the trust of the customer is vital, and have developed a reputation for integrity, reliability and for successfully completing even the most challenging of projects.

Our job begins even before building work commences, getting to know you, our client, and your specific requirements. Our job only ends when all parties are satisfied and the retention period is over, giving you peace of mind through our after sales service.

Where we engage in full ownership of a project, we guide you through communication and day to day decision making, liaising with other industry contacts involved in the process on your behalf. We work closely with you, maintaining a two way dialogue throughout to ensure our work realizes your vision.

Any unpredicted alterations to the course of the project are handled professionally, to minimize the impact on budget and reduce stress for you the client.

Lindsay, our project manager, has managed a variety of commercial and domestic projects from conception to completion. Under his leadership, these projects have been consistently delivered on schedule, within budget and to Lindsay’s exacting standard. He continues to build on his already vast knowledge and experience in the building industry, and thrives on challenge.

We have cultivated excellent relationships with fully qualified and highly skilled external sub-contractors with a proven track record. The work of all carefully selected sub contractors is overseen by Lindsay at every phase of the construction process. Our team-orientated sub-contractors all share in the company objectives and values.

Master Builder of the Year Award 2017

Crannog Construction has been awarded a prestigious Master Builder Award, taking the prize for best Large Renovation in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) Scotland ceremony.

Now in its 13th year, the Master Builder Awards continues to be a flagship for high-quality building work. Organised by the FMB, the awards programme is unique in that any project entered by the builder must be backed up by the customer – giving home owners the opportunity to support those building companies that have delivered exceptional results.

The Large Renovation Award was presented to Crannog Construction for works carried out on an Old School House in a rural hamlet consisting of just six properties. The project was a mixture of renovation work to the existing property to bring it up to current building standards and the addition of a substantial two-storey modern extension using sustainable materials in its construction. The building not only preserves the solidity and integrity of the old school house, it also provides the owners with a beautifully light, contemporary living space that is ideally suited to their family life.

On receiving the award, company director Lindsay Neill, said “Our whole team at Crannog Construction take great pride, pleasure and satisfaction in the standard of work we deliver. In an industry where the trust of the customer is vital, we have developed a reputation for honesty, integrity, reliability and quality. Receiving this award is recognition of the effort we put into our business, our people and our industry, and it has made us incredibly proud of the service we provide”.

Gordon Nelson, Director of FMB Scotland, said: “The Master Builder Awards give the FMB the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and for clients to say thank you to their builders. For the building industry, it is an opportunity to celebrate all that is good about small local builders and their importance to the UK economy.

"Time and time again we have been impressed with just how far these builders will go to ensure their client is happy. It is this dedication that we want to celebrate. Crannog Construction should feel justly proud of its achievement in winning and we wish the firm every success in the national competition."

Master Builder of the Year Award 2012

Crannog Construction has scooped a prestigious Master Builder of the Year Award, taking the Medium Renovation Projects in Scotland prize. The Master Builder of the Year Awards, a nationwide search by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) to find the best builders in the UK, is unique. Nominations must come from a satisfied client, and builders are judged on their technical ability together with their customer service skills.

Crannog Construction is the winner for the work completed building an extension to a 200 year old home in Falkirk.

Grahame Barn, FMB Services Director for Scotland, said: "The Master Builder of the Year Awards give clients the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and to thank their builder. The standard of entries this year is amongst the highest we have seen and reflects the expertise, attention to detail and professionalism of the region’s builders. What really stands out is the extent to which our regional winners were prepared to go beyond the call of duty to build a good working relationship with their clients to achieve the best possible result for them. Crannog Construction should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning the Medium Renovation Projects in Scotland prize".
