Rae Brown & Company Ltd are Joiners and Building Contractors based in Farburn Terrace, Dyce, Aberdeen. After a number of years in construction abroad, we were established by Rae Brown and a partner in 1975. We are one of the larger medium-sized building companies in Aberdeen and predominantly work as a Main Contractor or Lead Contractor, although occasionally as a Sub-Contractor or Independent Contractor.
We take great pride in our workforce, most of whom are highly skilled craftsmen, including Master Carpenters who have won awards for their work. We have staff that have been with the company for many years, with some even staying with us since completing their Apprenticeship. The company has a philosophy of continued in-house training coupled with external courses and commitment to the highest standards of craftsmanship, which has proven to be highly successful.
Commercial Contracting is an important part of our Company and we focus mainly on large internal alterations such as partitions, suspended ceilings, mezzanine floors, walkways, fire compartments, large extensions, loft conversions etc., although one-off traditional and new build kits have been completed. Our client base includes local Councils, Universities, Hospitals, Housing Associations and several large Oil Companies and we work on a range of different types of buildings such as Schools, Hospitals, Offices, Warehouses, Factories, Old Peoples Homes and Public and Private Housing.
We have also extended our domestic work to outside Aberdeen itself due to the increasing popularity of conversions in rural areas. Renovation of derelict, semi-derelict or dated houses is an important aspect of the company’s domestic contracting work.
Finally, Rae Brown have an established reputation for conserving and renovating historic and listed buildings. Unusually, we have completed renovations of historic buildings in both the commercial and domestic sector. We have a wide experience of working with specialist advisors, architects and planning conservation officers, as well as crucially having good relationships with representatives from organisations such as Historic Scotland, The Scottish Civic Trust (SCT) and the Architectural Heritage Society.
