Construction complete at new Ian Macleod Distillers Broxburn HQ

Ian MacLeod Distillers HQ, Broxburn

CLARK Contracts has completed the design and build of Ian MacLeod Distillers new Broxburn HQ.

The office, known as Peter Russell House, is located within East Mains Industrial Estate adjacent to the firm’s bottling facility. It will serve as the base for brands including Edinburgh Gin, Glengoyne, Tamdhu and Rosebank.

The steel framed building provides 21,000 sq.ft. of accommodation across two wings linked by a glass atrium and includes office space and a bar area. Externally, the HQ features two glazed lantern roof lights, modelled on the Doig Ventilator or ‘pagoda roof’, to reflect the characteristic of whisky distilleries.

As part of the project, Clark Contract’s in-house manufactured joinery division delivered a bespoke furniture package, including a reception desk, boardroom display units, timber screens and cladding.

Clark Contracts worked alongside Axiom Project Services, Simon Laird Associates, KJ Tait Engineers, Applied Engineering Design and EPC Associates to deliver the project.

The main contractor is also on site delivering a further project for Ian Macleod Distillers, constructing car parking facilities at its Rosebank Distillery in Falkirk.

Michael Scanlan, Clark Contracts director, said, “It has been fantastic to be involved in the delivery of this high-quality development, which will provide collaborative work space for Ian MacLeod Distillers staff, as well as an inviting space for their clients. We are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Ian Macleod Distillers on our current project at their Rosebank Distillery.”

Mike Younger, finance director at Ian MacLeod Distillers, added, “The new office is a transformation from our previous home. It is calming, open, and strikingly spacious. It is key to creating a team spirit and aids collaboration. It is a superb building for welcoming visitors.  Clark Contracts followed the brief, respected our quality standards, and delivered the stunning building we hoped for.”

Ryan Jarvis, project director at Axiom, commented, “This was a great project for Axiom Project Services to be involved in. The end product is a testament to IMD, and their drive to deliver a fantastic workspace for their staff. As well as Clark Contracts and their design team for an excellent project delivery.”
