Konishi Gaffney maximises timber construction to make Lockerbie Sawmill an ‘ode to sustainable timber construction’
Konishi Gaffney for James Jones & sons
Contract value: £53.7 million
Konishi Gaffney did not have to look far for materials for the new offices and visitor centre at the UK’s largest sawmill: the building acts as a demonstration project, almost entirely erected from James Jones and Sons’ own products with an approach to minimising the use of steel and maximising timber. This ode to sustainable timber construction showcases the company’s ambition as well as its operations; presenting a flagship for Scotland’s timber industry.
