Steelworks for new four-star hub

The structure of a new four-star hotel which it is hoped will connect guests to the magic of the island it is situated on, is being put in place by the AJE.

Led by project manager Allan Martin, AJE will be supplying and erecting the steelwork for the Bracken Hide Hotel on the Isle of Skye on behalf of Curley Concepts, the principle contractor.

The development comprises the main hotel building (The Hub) which will be complemented by 27 luxury en-suite cabins which will sit scattered across the landscape. The Hub will have a large reception and entrance area complete with a full-size lemon tree, a restaurant, a whisky bar and a family lounge with games and a screening.

There will also be a separate sauna building. AJE is involved in the steelwork for The Hub and sauna.

Allan said: “This is the first time we have worked with Curley Concepts and its certainly an ambitious project with unique designs. We are contracted to fabricate the structural steelwork for the Hub and an additional portal frame sauna building. The total steelwork weight is approximately 70te.”

He added: “AJE will begin fabricating this month (March) and installation of the structural steel is due to happen at the end of April/beginning of May. We have done several projects on the Isle of Skye before, so see no reason why the location will present any challenges.”
