Heads of Ayr

Client:
Heads of Ayr Caravan Park

Architect:
Lawrence McPherson Associates

Contractor:
3b construction

Contract Value:
£475,000

3b construction were contracted to demolish an existing building, which contained asbestos roof sheeting and other hazardous materials. These were all safely removed and disposed off-site at an accredited waste station.

This project was started on the off-peak season but continued into the summer peak holidays. Therefore effective traffic management procedures were developed to segregate the public from all works areas and to ensure minimal disruption to the daily operations of the park.

This project comprised of male and female shower blocks, workshop, plant room and park shop to the ground floor. The first floor was fitted out to a high specification, domestic, layout to provide holiday letting space.

This building required a separate plant room to be constructed in which a large scale wood pellet biomass system was installed to provide all the heating and hot water requirements to the new building and others on the site. This provided our client with a very economical solution to the energy requirements of the site.

The building comprised a structural steel frame, metal deck, cast in-situ floors, timber frame infill, stonework cladding to the ground floor and rendered insulation panel to the first floor.

We added value to this project by using 3b construction's in-house structural steel division detailed, fabricated and erected the steel frame.  We then followed our erection team with joiner squads to complete the external envelope of the building.  We concurrently clad the ground floor with stone, whilst the upper floor was able to progress with the insulated panel system. This gave us the programme advantage that we required to deliver the project ahead of the busy holiday season.

The washrooms were fully fitted out with wet panel walling and suspended grid ceilings, incorporating wet panel sheets. This provided a suitable, robust, solution for our client to withstand the high usage environment.
