Portakabin supports first phase of Macallan distillery and visitor experience


Offsite specialist Portakabin delivered a management office and conference facility within six weeks for renowned Edrington.

The Macallan has opened a brand new £140million distillery and visitor experience on the stunning Easter Elchies estate, which has been home to the leading luxury single malt since 1824. The new distillery and experience will not only help meet global demand via an increase in production but also introduce new audiences to the growing brand.

Portakabin was chosen by The Macallan to provide a bespoke management office and conference facility to tie in with the launch of its brand new distillery and visitor experience building.

With a quick turnaround vital to the scheme, Portakabin were able to deliver a high-quality custom-built suite for the team while they wait for permanent facilities to be installed.

Decanting senior management on site was a last minute decision and The Macallan needed an appropriate solution for the busy site. Portakabin ensured the building included a custom-made kitchen as an employee breakout area as well as super-fast data in the offices to meet with their expectations.

Blyth+Blyth worked in partnership with the Portakabin team as consulting engineers. Blyth+Blyth specialise in Civil & Structural Engineering, Mechanical & Electrical Engineering and Project Management.

Jay Gallagher, Hire Manager for Portakabin says: “We designed a bespoke building for The Macallan and put together a building option which utilised existing modules to provide a cost effective solution for the team.”

George McKenzie, UK Engineering Manager for Edrington says: “Portakabin reacted and delivered to a very tight deadline and exacting design specification. This was a last minute decision by The Macallan to move into interim accommodation until the permanent building could be constructed and Portakabin moved from rough ground to the finished article within six short weeks.“What they have provided meets our requirements precisely. The finish and build quality is excellent and certainly raises the bar in peoples expectation when they think of temporary accommodation.”
