Distribution Units, Larkhall

The Client was looking at utilizing a brownfield site in South Lanarkshire as a commercial distribution hub. The development was to be speculative and had to meet the aspirations of the Client for a sustainable architecture on a tight budget.

The site is adjacent to the main M74 arterial route and will serve as a hub to Manchester and the north of England, as well as the whole of central belt Scotland.

The simple shell and core units will be constructed from state-of-the-art timber technologies—maximising u-values and built time.

Timber cladding softens the industrial look of the form and utilising home grown timber minimises the environmental impact of the cladding.

The scheme was never realised.
