A.C. Whyte were appointed as Main Contractor by Blochairn Housing Association the strip and installation of new external wall insulation works for 102 properties in Roystonhill, across three phases, which remained occupied throughout the works. The works required internal access for the installation of new windows and gas works so careful planning was key to ensure programme timings were met. We also had to ensure safe removal of the existing external wall insulation system, comprising white polystyrene, for this we implemented larger skips which were removed on a daily bases and scaffold/skips were fully enclosed to prevent debris. The works were in a highly pedestrianised area in close proximity to a school, church and nursery therefore we had a strict traffic management plan and carefully coordinated deliveries and uplifts out with peak times.
