Over the years, Tulloch Developments has built an enviable track record in completing many kinds of civil engineering tasks on time and within budget.
We are experienced in undertaking:
- Site clearance and rock breaking
- Major road works including kerbing and surfacing
- Residential driveway surfacing
- Reinforced concrete slabs, plinths, walls and other structures
- The movement of bulk material
- Demolition works
- House founds and landscaping
- A range of utilities work, including micro-trench cable laying
Having our own ready-mix concrete service and asphalt paving machine, we are able to provide our clients with excellent value for money.
One of our main customers is Scottish Water. Over the last decade we have completed numerous projects including, laying new water pipes, bulk storage tanks, emergency sewer repairs and pipe bursts (where the new water pipe was pulled through the old one). We have also completed utility work for Scottish & Southern Energy, BT and Shetland Telecom.
With a wide range of plant and equipment plus a driven and focused workforce, we can ensure our customers get a high quality service and that every job is completed safely and efficiently.
Laying Fibre Optic Cables
Tulloch Developments is ideally placed to carry out the fast, efficient installation of fibre optic cable. We have experience in laying such cable over land, whether in deep peat or under major roads, for Faroese Telecom and Shetland Telecom.
The Micro trenching technology we use enables us to lay cable much more quickly than would be possible using conventional open trenching. We’re able to undertake projects anywhere in the UK.
Our first contract was worth £285,000 and was undertaken in 2007 for Faroese Telecom, whose Faroe-Shetland subsea cable passes through Shetland. We assisted with landing of the cable on the shore at Banff, Sandwick and Maywick. See our project page for more details.
More recently, during 2011, we installed the fibre optic cable that connects Shetland Telecom’s hub in Lerwick with the Sandwick landfall of the Faroese cable. The cable was laid under the public road over a distance of approximately 20km. The contract value was £450,000. Using a specially-purchased Ditch Witch cutter and tractor, we cut a 100mm x 20mm slot in the carriageway, laid the cable and reinstated the road surface.
