Scot­land the brave

Australasian Timber - - NEWS -

A BOLD prop­erty move by a La­nark­shire com­pany is in­tended to pave the way for an in­no­va­tive new man­u­fac­tur­ing plant that would give Scot­land a lead over the rest of the UK. The £100m turnover construction and de­vel­op­ment firm CCG - which al­ready em­ploys 600 peo­ple from its base in Cam­bus­lang - has re­vealed plans to ex­pand its off-site man­u­fac­tur­ing ex­per­tise into an­other tech­nol­ogy. It has bought a new 122,000 sq ft pro­duc­tion plant called Ti­tan at Euro­cen­tral for £4.15m, where it is propos­ing to es­tab­lish a fac­tory man­u­fac­tur­ing cross lam­i­nated tim­ber (CLT). The com­pany’s ex­ist­ing semi-au­to­mated off-site fa­cil­i­ties at Glas­gow East In­vest­ment Park al­ready push the bound­aries of sus­tain­able construction, with the 130,000 sq ft oper­a­tion ca­pa­ble of pro­duc­ing up to 3000 closed panel build­ings a year, of­ten com­plete with value added fea­tures such as in­su­la­tion, doors, win­dows and ex­ter­nal claddings in brick or ren­der.
