Stenhousemuir project provides retail therapy for Esh Border Construction

ESH Border Construction has completed a new B&M store in Stenhousemuir after winning a seven-figure tender.

The Livingston-based contractor started work on the steel-framed retail unit earlier this year and has now handed over the property to Stirling-based Ramoyle Developments Ltd.

The project also saw Esh Border Construction undertaking development of a 5,000 square foot service yard – which will become an associated garden centre facility – as well as infrastructure works, and the formation of a new junction. The firm also carried out site preparation works for a new restaurant, which will be run separately by a national operator.

Plans to develop the former McCowans toffee factory site were approved by Falkirk Council last year.

Gerard McMahon, Esh Border Construction’s regional director for Scotland said, “It’s been a pleasure to work on this significant retail development for Stenhousemuir and we are pleased to have now reached completion at Tryst Road. We’ve delivered the project on time and worked closely with B&M and Ramoyle Developments to facilitate a number of key features that we hope will help to encourage footfall when it eventually opens, creating a popular outlet.

“In successfully completing the project, we have also further bolstered our retail portfolio. We are currently tendering for similar projects and see it as a significant part of the business going forward.”
