3b construction is a family owned construction business, operating throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland. Headed up by three brothers – Iain, Stuart and Graeme Barr, (hence the name 3b construction), it was established in 2003 and has its head office in Minishant, Ayrshire. Through the strength of character and the strong determination of the founders, the aim right from the outset was simply to make a success of a newly formed business. Judging by today’s operation which employs over 150 people and has many impressive construction projects to its name (check out the website), the initial objective has been achieved many times over!
3b construction prides itself on delivering high quality construction projects for its clients across a wide range of sectors including healthcare, education, industrial, commercial, residential, manufacturing and leisure. The Company frequently adopts an off-site manufacturing and pre-assembly strategy for its projects – an approach which simplifies on- site assembly, reduces on-site interfaces, improves safety, improves quality and reduces the overall project delivery time. Utilising its brand new manufacturing facility at Newton Stewart and making the most of its state of the art equipment and experienced fabrication teams, the business can fabricate timber, structural steel and precast concrete to suit any project requirement.
The fabricated structures are delivered to site using 3b’s in-house plant and transport service. The fleet includes a variety of heavy haulage units with 3 and 4 axle step frame low loaders, not to mention flat beds, extender flat beds, a selection of tippers, rigid crane trucks with beaver tail bodies and draw bar trailers and also a heavy crane support truck with 6 axle ballast trailer. The Company’s comprehensive selection of cranes are used to help with the lifting and installation of the fabrications on site during construction, as well as being available for hire. The Scania unit on which the model will be based is the latest addition to the fleet and when paired with the 4 axle step frame low loader is plated up to 75 tonnes. Smartly turned out in 3b construction’s yellow, grey & black livery, the model will certainly make for an attractive addition to any collection.
