Barr Construction has won a £5m contract to expand brewer and bar operator BrewDog's headquarters in Aberdeenshire.

The contract includes a new 300-hectolitre brew house, which will be added to the existing Ellon facility.

Barr will also be responsible for installing 20 new tanks and building a three-storey office at the site.

The Paisley-based construction firm said work was due to start on the new brew house later this month.

BrewDog, which was founded eight years ago in Fraserburgh by James Watt and Martin Dickie, is undergoing major expansion to meet growing demand for its products.

Its turnover this year is expected to top £32m.

In addition to brewing, it owns more than two dozen bars, the majority of which are based in the UK.

This will be one of the final projects delivered under the Barr Construction banner. The firm is to take on the name of its Northern Ireland-based owners McLaughlin & Harvey under a rebranding move.
