My name is Bryan Laidlaw. I am a time served Heating Engineer (Pipe Fitter and Pipe Welder) who works in and around Edinburgh. I fit and weld all types of heating and chilled water installations and work on mainly large to medium sized contracts. I work with screwed steel, welded steel, copper, stainless and plastic pipe.
I am punctual, hard working and I consistently produce work of a high standard. I am well organized, efficient at what I do and have a very methodical way of working. With a good eye for detail, I'm the type of person who likes to get the job done. I like to see progress at the end of the day and I always try to leave a job that nobody has to go back too.
If it needs piped, Laidlaw pipes it.
In my time I've fitted all pipe sizes using steel pipe up to 12 inch, copper pipe up to 4 inch, stainless up to 6 inch and various plastics up to 8 inch. The things I would typically pipe are boilers, chillers, air handling units, pumps, 3 way valve sets, pipework mains, radiators, fan coil units, cold feeds, vents and gas lines. I've worked in schools, office blocks, hospitals, data centres, hotels, factories and much more. I have extensive experience working with the following:

It's All About Plumb And Level
Over the last 6 years I've worked as a self employed heating engineer, fitting and welding pipes for a few different companies. After the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus I decided to go on the books with Blantyre Park Services. The companies below are who I've worked for over the 6 year period with the exception of Arthur McKay whom I was employed with for 8 years until 2014.
