Chapelton of Elsick is a visionary new town being constructed next to the A90 beside Newtonhill. It is being constructed by Elsick Development Company led by David Carnegie, Duke of Fife.

W M Donald has a long and proud record of work undertaken on the Elsick estate dating back to 1980s. The master architect of the Chapelton development is Andres Duany of Duany Plater-Zyberk (DPZ). DPZ is one of the pioneers and leading advocates of New Urbanism, a movement which promotes the development of walkable, mixed-use communities.

The initial masterplan is for 4054 homes. When all the ‘neighbourhoods’ have been completed the final total will be in the region of 8000 homes.

The first neighbourhood to be built is Cairnhill. W M Donald provided all the enabling works for the site including the construction of a new roundabout, access roads, hard landscaping including extensive use of SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems), construction of a 4km rising main, and access for utilities. W M Donald has subsequently undertaken the plot works for a large proportion of the first tranche of 250 properties, many of which are already occupied.

By providing a high level of customer focus and aftercare in Streetscape, to WM Donald, Smet Building Products Ltd demonstrates best-practice in construction partnerships.
