Mains Bridge II, Dumfries House, Ayrshire

About Project

This green oak framed bridge is clad in boarding from an oak tree felled on the estate. A mobile saw mill was brought in to convert the tree into usable timber for the project.

The oak frame was constructed off site, the side walls and arched trusses were pegged together, transported and lifted into position with a crane. Prefabricating the structure results in a shorter on-site construction period, therefore causing minimal disruption to the estate and it’s visitors.
