Construction Continues on Major Timber Processing Plant for Egger at Ayrshire

Following successful delivery of the initial earthworks phase, we are now well underway with the delivering our elements of the main works contract for Egger UK Ltd.’s new state of the art timber processing facility in Auchinleck, Ayrshire.

Works include all foul and storm drainage including a large SUDS pond, along with all foundations and concrete floor and road slabs. There are significant below ground structures to be constructed along with an underground fire escape tunnel. We are required to manage and coordinate Eggers’ specialist contractors who will be erecting the building. All internal works such as slabs and structures are to be delivered by I & H Brown.

Given the complexity of the building, the initial challenge was understanding the full design so that works could be coordinated safely and effectively. These works involve managing contractors from all over Europe in erecting the building given it’s bespoke nature.

The new lamination building is an extension to the existing plant at Barony and will allow the plant to produce laminated boards for major furniture producers. It is a similar extension to the previous project Egger recently completed at Hexham and will include some challenging items such as precast foundations, columns, and walls along with glulam timber beams. The extents of concrete surfacing and flooring works will be an extensive part of our works with the anticipated volume of concrete required at 4500m3.
