Bancon Group has been awarded new contracts totalling £20.5 million in the public and private sectors.

The construction divison of the Banchory-based group, has secured building work for several major projects, including Aberdeen City Council, GAMA Aviation and First Construction.

Bancon Construction Ltd, will build 80 affordable houses at Manor Walk for Aberdeen City Council. Starting later this year, construction will be due for completion in 2018.

Work has already started on the construction of a new hangar and reception centre for GAMA Aviation at Aberdeen Airport, expected to finish next April.

The development of a new restaurant in the former E&M’s building on Aberdeen’s Union Street will get underway shortly on behalf of First Construction.

The building of a new car showroom for a private sector car dealer has also commenced recently.
