External Upgrade to 3 Multi Storey Blocks, Port Glasgow

Value £1,412,000
Term 2006 - 2008


Working with Inverclyde Council, A. C. Whyte & Co. Ltd was employed as Main Contractor for the refurbishment of three fifteen-storey blocks of flats. The regeneration works carried out vastly improved the appearance of the blocks, which are a focal point in the landscape of Port Glasgow. Furthermore, the external wall insulation system installed on the blocks, will improve the thermal performance of the buildings and through time tenants should benefit from a reduction in fuel bills.

Quality of workmanship, attitude and commitment exceeded project requirements in all areas.  Inverclyde Council
