Project Description New build Hotel / Pub / Restaurant at Auchinstarry Marina, Kilsyth.

After a traditional tender process we were appointed Main Contractor for the management and co-ordination of the construction works using both sub-contractors and our own direct labour. The works involved piling adjacent to a canal basin followed by the construction of a steel framed structure with masonry walls and traditional roof. The finishes of the internal areas were required to be of a very high standard due to the nature of the project and this was achieved to the delight of the facility operator and all parties concerned.

Working adjacent to the canal and houseboat residents required careful co-ordination and regular contact with all parties to keep them informed on progress.

Great care was required to ensure that no contamination of the ground / water took place especially as the permanent drainage solution included discharge into a reed bed and also the heating system design included a heat pump submerged in the canal.
