Refurbishment project to the area of Pollokshaws

Value £270,000
Term Mar 2015 - Oct 2015


A.C. Whyte & Co. Ltd was involved in the substantial refurbishment of high rise properties at 118, 120, 122 Eastwood Avenue & 1265 Pollokshaws Road, Pollokshaws. The blocks consist of 47 maisonette/ flatted properties. Central to the transformation was the external re-cladding of the building with a high specification insulated render system finished with an aesthetically pleasing smooth silkolitt silicone render finish.

The location of 1265 Pollockshaws Road, situated on a particularly busy main road, required a tailored site set up.  The properties and shops are accessed through a two storey car park, which is located directly below, this remained open throughout the works.  Organised planning and attention to detail were vital in ensuring both the general public and the residents could go about their business safely and uninterrupted during the works.
