The principal business of Distell (formerly Burn Stewart Distillers) is the distillation, blending and bottling of Scotch whisky brands and the marketing of these brands worldwide.

Our Client acquired a 6-acre site located at West Mains Road in East Kilbride, immediately adjacent to their existing bottling plant and dry goods storage facility. Our brief was to phase develop this new site to accommodate a state-of-the-art blending centre and a maturation warehousing facility with the aim of establishing a fully integrated and centralised business operation in East Kilbride. The challenge for the Masterplan was to deliver the most efficient layout for the process buildings and infrastructure and maximise the potential for warehousing.

The urban nature of the site demanded that we consider and capitalise on the visibility and prominence of the building in its context. The design focus is on the warehousing and the prominent south-east corner and elevation where the branding, artwork and colour palette take their cues from the iconic distillery buildings of the Scottish isles.
