Kelpies 10 Sponsorship Announcement

Mackenzie Construction becomes an official Sponsor for Kelpies 10 Celebration.


Mackenzie Construction is proud to announce that we are an official sponsor of the Kelpies 10 celebration, taking place on the 10th Birthday of the Kelpies on 27th of April 2024.


The monumental 30m high structures, the Kelpies, were designed and created by Glasgow-based sculptor Andy Scott in October 2013 and officially unveiled by HRH Princess Anne on the 8th of July 2015. The pair of sculptures stand on the canal link between the Forth & Clyde Canal and the River Carron, at The Helix, an eco-park situated between Falkirk and Grangemouth.


The entire project took over ten years to realise and the sculptures were commissioned by Scottish Canals. Since the launch of the Kelpies in 2015, Helix Park has welcomed over seven million visitors from all over the world; the Kelpies play a huge role in contributing to a £85 million tourism spend in the Falkirk region annually.


“Mackenzie Construction is delighted to be an official sponsor of the Kelpies’ 10th birthday and looks forward to welcoming local visitors to celebrate the heritage legacy of Scotland’s canals, which continue to bring so many benefits across Scotland’s communities.” – Andy Dalrymple, Managing Director, Mackenzie Construction
