Gillies and Farrell were our sub-contractor for the Stone repair package at our project at the Speirs Centre in Alloa. This Grade A listed Structure constructed in 1890 built as the Town Gymnasium and Swimming Pool has been converted in to a new central library for Clackmannanshire Council.

The fabric repairs were constructed to Historic Scotland Standards and were part funded by them. The works were closely monitored by Historic Scotland and Gillies and Farrell worked closely with them and the architect to deliver the works to specification, on time and within budget.

They were proactive in all discussions with the design team and ourselves to ensure the best outcome in terms of the repairs that had set budget constraints. The standard of workmanship was excellent and they worked with us to meet to achieve access into some awkward areas of the building.

We would be delighted to employ them in future and are pleased to recommend them as a competent experienced contractor.

I am happy to highly recommend Gillies and Farrell Stonemasons. They show a great Artisan skill for their craft yet have a professional business-like approach. The entire contract went without a hitch and the end result is unquestionably of the highest quality. A pleasure to do business with them.

Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd were appointed to undertake all structural and decorative stonework for the substantial extension to the Black Watch Museum in Perth, Scotland. The detail and craftsmanship in the stonework was of vital importance to us as architects as it characterises the exterior of the extension and acts as the primary reference for the quality of the rest of the build.

Scott and his team, headed on-site by Andy Colleran, interpreted our ambitions excellently and their skill and expertise in their craft shone through in the finished product. We would have no problem in recommending their services and look forward to hopefully working with them again in the future

We have no difficulty in recommending the work of Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd. We were appointed as architect to design and administer a building contract for the erection of a private house on Loch Tay.

We designed a substantial 6 – bedroom dwelling house constructed with a concrete block cavity wall and back-bedded whinstone rainscreen cladding. Due to the size of the property this masonry element was substantial. We developed an exacting specification and the masonry required to be of the highest quality.

Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd., was a named masonry subcontractor (SBCC Standard Building Contract with quantities (SBC/Q/SCOT). The total contract sum was 2,537,068.78 and the masonry element to the house was completed earlier this year.

We were happy with Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd’s., performance from the project inception where they assisted in preparing the specification and providing sample panels for approval. This attention to detail was carried out throughout and manifested onsite in the built work. Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd’s., masons were approachable on site and had a genuine desire to work through any issues which arose on site with us as designers. We believe that attitude helped achieve a result that we are proud of. We would be happy to use Gillies & Farrell Masonry Ltd., in future and will keep them in mind for future works.
