Linear Design & Construct to deliver landmark Ayr Riverside project
Principal contracting specialist Linear Design & Construct (LDC) has secured a significant redevelopment project as part of the comprehensive rejuvenation of Ayr town centre.
Set to transform Ayr’s riverside, the completed project will create an exciting and inspiring space offering both practicality and functionality to the people of Ayr.
Working on behalf of hub South West as the development partner of South Ayrshire Council, LDC will undertake the construction of high quality public realm event space and community pavilion overlooking the River Ayr. Once complete, the area will play host to an array of dynamic local events including markets, concerts and events as well as providing a space for walking, relaxing and enjoying the riverside surroundings.
Partnering with an experienced and expert design team incorporating architects Austin-Smith:Lord, civil engineer and MEP consultants Harley Haddow and marine specialists Arch Henderson Engineering, LDC will play a pivotal role in ensuring the works support the vision to deliver the ongoing vitality and viability of the town centre, whilst integrating the new space with its historically important surrounding environment.
Ryan Broadley, managing director 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, said: “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 team began work on site in January and are set for completion in early 2023.
