Pat Munro has undertaken a variety of Contracts over many of their construction skills both direct to HIE and also acting a sub-contractor to individual projects.

Working as Main Contractor to HIE, Pat Munro were awarded the Construction of Haul Road and Maintenance Compound

  • This would ultimately serve for the Development and Construction Phase of Plots 7 to 13 allowing for the main infrastructure roads within the Campus to be undisturbed.
  • Works consisted of boundary fencing, mass excavation and filling, Construction of a 10m timber and steel bridge, formation of maintenance storage compound and tarmac surfacing.

In March 2015, Pat Munro were awarded their 2nd HIE, Campus related project, to form a bus gate on Millburn Road Inverness. 

  • This project formed part of the improved access route to the new Campus required under HIE’s Planning Permission.
  • The works involved excavation of the existing central reservation between dual carriageways, forming road construction and installation of new traffic signals. 
  • Due to the location and nature of the works, significant traffic management was required throughout the project which Pat Munro managed, a significant factor during the project following a serious fire within Inverness City Centre that ultimately increased traffic flow towards the works. 
  • Pat Munro worked alongside all stakeholders including the local authority, bus operator and emergency services to ensure minimum disruption was caused whilst the works were undertaken.

April 2015 saw the award of the 3rd Contract from HIE which involved linking Inverness Campus to Eastfield Retail Park

  • This project involved the forming of a Pedestrian and Cycle Path between the two sites.
  • We extended the current 3m wide footpath on the Inverness Campus to Eastfield Retail Park utilising the existing Drumrosach Railway Bridge. The Path also forms part of the Sustrans Cycle network. 
  • Over the 300m length, earthworks, filling, services and handrails were installed; boundary fences erected and a 10m span timber bridge was erected crossing a local burn. 
  • In addition the existing Drumrosach Bridge was refurbished and upgraded to meet Network Rail standards; working from the live dual track during line possessions overnight.

In September 2013, PJ Carey awarded the Surfacing Package to Pat Munro which also involved the construction of the School of Forestry at Balloch
