James Jones & Sons commences GBP 3 million extension to Stevens Croft site in UK. A four acre extension to Lockerbie mill 1 log yard is well underway, with phase one of the project on schedule to be completed by Christmas.
The northern extension will provide a larger storage area for unsorted and sorted logs, increasing the range and flexibility with which the logs can be cut in mill 1.
The extension includes the construction of a perimeter road and concrete slab for log storage. It will be serviced by a purpose built Sustainable Drainage System (SuDS), including solids and oil interceptors to handle all surface water drainage. The project has been supported by design engineers, Asher Associates, while the principal contractor on site is Hardie Engineering.
James Jones & Sons Ltd is the UK’s most diversified, family owned timber processor. The company today operates from 20 sites across the UK.
