Robertson to build iconic new road-bridge in the heart of Scotland
24 Feb 16
Robertson has secured the contract to engineer and build an iconic road-bridge for Chivas Brothers Distillery.
Civil Engineering group Robertson was awarded the contract by the Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whiskey and premium gin business of Pernod Ricard, for work at The Glenlivet Distillery following the successful build of its Dalmunach Distillery in Glen Carron on the banks in the Spey in 2015.
A team of 17 expert engineers, surveyors and tradesman will work in collaboration with architects Archial Norr, in erecting the structure of the three-arch bridge, over a 20 week work programme and will be fit for purpose by mid-summer 2016.
Robertson Civil Engineering Managing Director Tony Fry said: “We are now in the advanced planning stages with the architect and Chivas Brothers and anticipate breaking ground on the 29 February.
“It is a privilege to have been selected to work on the landscape of The Glenlivet Distillery. Not only because it is an iconic malt whisky brand, but also because I know the bridge will be enjoyed by people from all across the world when they come to visit.”
The Speyside landscape is home to the world’s number one single malt, The Glenivet, and so the bridge will be built in the style of The Glenivet signifier – the pack horse bridge – and will form the entrance to the Visitor Centre.
Gordon Buist, Production Director at Chivas Brothers said: “The Bridge is part of wider works that are taking place at The Glenlivet distillery which will enhance our production facilities. We are committed to operational excellence at our Scottish sites and are delighted to be working with Robertson Civil Engineering again following a successful partnership last year culminating in our Dalmunach Distillery.”
