Case Study

Bruichladdich Distillery (Phase 2)

Location: Isle of Islay
31/03/2021
Type of building: Warehouse
Value of Project: £1.4 Million
Contract Period: 16 Weeks

Working on the island was no mean feat, the inclement weather conditions, think gusty winds and horizontal rain and the coastal location definitely made the build a challenging project, however, Robinsons experienced teams were able to complete the build successfully.

Robinsons Structural Steelwork and Robinsons Cladding were contracted by Robertson Central West to provide 360 tonnes of structural steelwork and 1150 concrete panels as cladding for Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay. Bruichladdich was looking to create a steel-framed bonded warehouse that was within a reasonable distance to their current operations on the Island.

The company philosophy is to keep all their operations on Islay to ensure that the island can remain prosperous, so, focussing on their key principles, they make their single malt by hand using traditional techniques and maturing the whisky on the island itself. 

While our team fabricated and supplied the steelwork needed in-house, we got in touch with our long-time partners CWP to fulfil the order of concrete panels for the project. CWP are specialists in high-quality concrete products, and all of the 140mm panels used for Bruichladdich were made to exposure performance class – perfect for coastal projects and also boasting a 2-hour fire rating for excellent performance in its industrial use.

Robinsons worked in collaboration with CWP to deliver in excess of 120 loads to the island, relying heavily upon our logistics teams working in tandem to carefully plan each journey based on ferry times and site schedule to ensure we were gaining optimal load capacity and delivering on time.

Working on the island was no mean feat, the inclement weather conditions, think gusty winds and horizontal rain and the coastal location definitely made the build a challenging project, however, Robinsons experienced teams were able to complete the build successfully.

Ryan Brown, Managing Director stated that he is delighted that the team have been able to help build the future of the drinks industry within the UK and is hoping to continue working within the industry.

“The rapidly growing distillery sector has huge potential due to the innovative companies currently driving the competitive drinks market forward. It is great being able to help shape the future of this dynamic and homegrown market and work alongside clients to create bespoke solutions for their projects. We hope to further our connections and continue to use our knowledge and expertise to support the industry so that it can continue to thrive within the UK.”
