Sylvan Stuart Limited is the continuation of the business started on the same Pitmachie site by the present managing director’s father, A G Stuart, in 1947. It has been fabricating and constructing timber buildings throughout the UK for well over sixty years, predominantly in rural areas.
The firm probably has unique knowledge of the use of Scottish timber in some structural engineering applications, and also very extensive experience of specifying, making and erecting timber houses and other buildings, frequently for remote and sometimes very exposed locations.
Pitmachie Works extends to about two acres, and has substantial storage, machining, processing and fabrication space, which includes a boron timber pressure preservation plant. A CNC production line has been installed there for almost 25 years, and the latest technology continues to be applied.
Sylvan Stuart has served all types of client, from multinationals, SMEs, charities large and small, landowners, farmers and crofters, plus many individuals and families seeking to build their own home. Similarly, the business has worked with a wide range of specifiers and contract forms.
