  • Value:£1.1m

To facilitate a grid connection for a proposed wind farm, Barhale were
tasked with the construction of a new substation control building and
associated civil works. Works took place to the west of the village of
Douglas in South Lanarkshire.

The new substation control building was a single story steel portal
frame structure, which was constructed on top of a reinforced
concrete floor slab. External facing bricks were constructed to a
defined level, in front of which an insulated aluminium cladding
façade was attached to the frame to provide the external walls. The
same cladding was attached to the top of the steel portal frame to
construct the roof structure.
