Isle of Arran Distillers
Quantum move forward with
new Distillery Project in Lagg
Isle of Arran Distillers Ltd has appointed Quantum Solutions to provide Project Management and Quantity Surveying services for their new £10 million distillery in Lagg, on the southside of the island. This will be a second site for the company, which opened the award winning Lochranza Distillery in 1995.
Construction work is due to start later on this year, with plans including a distillery, visitor centre and three bonded warehouses.
Quantum Director and Owner Richard Neilson said: “We’re delighted to be managing this project and have already begun carefully selecting the right team of industry specialists so together we can deliver above and beyond all expectation in constructing this exciting new facility. We also feel very at home on Arran, having worked for many years with the Auchrannie Resort. We look forward to building a similarly successful relationship with Arran Distillers.”
The Lagg Distillery is being built on the site of the last legal distillery on Arran – prior to 1995 – which closed in 1837. With a stunning elevated location overlooking Cleat’s Shore and a commanding view of Ailsa Craig, the new distillery should be operational by late 2018.
“Quantum Solutions were recommended to me by the Auchrannie Resort on the island, and subsequently I have appointed them to provide Project Management and Quantity Surveying services for our new Distillery, Visitor Centre and Warehouse project at Lagg.
I am both impressed and delighted at how well Richard Neilson and his team are handling the process. Everything is well organised and under control, and I have found Richard to be superb to deal with. He is an excellent communicator, with a very transparent style of project management which I particularly like. His enthusiasm for our project is clear and he is always very willing to assist with any queries we may have. Quantum have been involved with us now since September 2015, and it has been an overwhelmingly positive experience.
Without much personal involvement in the construction sector, I needed a company I could trust 100% to deliver and I have no doubt whatsoever I have found that in Quantum. The efficiency in which they are carrying out our project is quite remarkable and we are well on track for our planned completion date next year. I therefore highly recommend Quantum Solutions in both capacities of Project Management and Quantity Surveying.”
