Linear to deliver ‘landmark’ Ayr riverside project

LINEAR Design & Construct (LDC) has been awarded a contract to deliver a major redevelopment project as part of the rejuvenation of Ayr town centre.

Working on behalf of hub South West as the development partner of South Ayrshire Council, LDC will undertake construction of public realm event space and a community pavilion overlooking the River Ayr. Once complete, the area will host events including markets and concerts as well as provide space for walking, relaxing and enjoying the riverside surroundings.

The design team includes architects Austin-Smith:Lord, civil engineer and MEP consultants Harley Haddow, and marine specialists Arch Henderson Engineering.

Ryan Broadley, MD of LDC Scotland, said, “Having worked on several projects with hub South West and South Ayrshire Council, we are pleased to be given a further opportunity to show the strength of our skills, capability and commitment.  We are delighted to have started on site with this exciting, landmark project which will undoubtedly enhance the riverside areas and provide a fantastic space for the people of Ayr when it’s completed.”

Michael Ross, chief executive of hub South West, added, “It is fantastic to see LDC Scotland continuing to carry the momentum built up over the past few years in its work in South Ayrshire. This is an exciting project which further strengthens our collective contribution, not only to the built environment of the historic town of Ayr, but also to the positive economic impact on communities across South Ayrshire.”

The projects is set for completion in early 2023.
