One company, AJC Homes of Aberdeenshire is using a new Manitou MT1840 specifically for the project and its performance characteristicsManitou Helping To Create A New Generation Town

Five miles south of Aberdeen there is an ambitious construction project to deliver a real sense of community within seven distinct neighbourhoods totalling 8,000 houses.

The initial phase of construction will see 4,045 homes built within four neighbourhoods, Cairnhill, Wester Cairnhill, Newhall and Chapelton town centres. Each district is designed to incorporate local shops, offices, bus stops and open space parkland.

Elsick Development Company is working with three house builders to realise the plan for quality and spacious housing, utilising local build materials.

One company, AJC Homes of Aberdeenshire is using a new Manitou MT1840 specifically for the project and its performance characteristics - a lift height of 18 metre and a load capacity of 4,000 kg,

Safety features include a ‘driver presence’ detector to ensure the cab door is shut and a load sensing detector with three modes - handling, bucket and swinging load function, which facilitates safer handling of roof trusses.

Caterpillar 311F Euro Stage 4 Engine ExcavatorA First for Morgan Sindall

Construction and infrastructure business Morgan Sindall has taken receipt of the first Caterpillar 311F Euro Stage 4 Engine Excavator in Europe. The ubiquitous ‘digger’ is a staple feature of construction sites everywhere, but this one is different.

It is a new generation of cleaner, more efficient machines that comply with the latest EU legislation to reduce Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and particulate matter emissions from diesel engines.

The new machine is currently on site assisting the Morgan Sindall team on its project to construct the new Pudding Mill Lane Station, in London, for the wider Crossrail project to extend London’s railway network.

Jonathan Hall, Plant Director at Morgan Sindall, said:

As a leading UK construction and infrastructure company, Morgan Sindall is committed to playing its part in driving forward the sustainability agenda. In partnering with firms that share our vision of minimising environmental impact, we are able to continue to develop greener options to help make this a reality.

Morgan Sindall
