McPhillips undertook this design and build project to provide a new Saw Mill on the outskirts of Market Drayton in Shropshire.

Initially the seven acre greenfield site was stripped and a 11,000m2 mesh reinforced 200mm thick concrete slab was cast in-situ to provide a suitable hardstanding.  Portal frame buildings with composite roofs and built-up cladding were constructed consisting of 833m2 two storey Office and Shop, 608m2 Store, 1281m2 Timber Treatment building and a 1124m2 Manufacturing Workshop 7m to eaves.  Externally there is a Drying Kiln for preparing the timber and a biomass boiler connected to a district heating system.

 A 50,000 litre underground tank was installed for rainwater harvesting and supplies water for use in the timber product manufacturing processes.
