£2m roof refurb programme gets off the ground

3rd July 2022

Procast have won a £2million, four-year contract to upgrade roofing on housing association properties across Ayrshire.

The programme of works will take place while the homes are occupied and they will also improve associated features such as rainwater services.

Commencing his week, the project for clients Ayrshire Housing – one of the four arm’s length organisations providing homes and associated services for Ayrshire’s councils – will run until July 2026.

The works will involve:

  • Sarking renewal where required
  • Replacement of all felt with breather membranes
  • Replacement of tile and counter battens
  • Replacement of all slate or concrete interlocking roof tiles, vent tiles, dry ventilated ridge tiles and verges
  • Replacement of lead flashings
  • Replacement of all UPVC fascias and soffits
  • Renewal of all rainwater goods and accessories
  • Scaffold erection and dismantle
  • Asbestos surveys and removal were required

Because the works will be carried out on occupied buildings in a live residential environment, utmost care will be taken to ensure the safety of the public and security of the properties – and all access routes and pavements will have to be kept clear.

And while Ayrshire Housing will make initial contact with the residents, advising of the course of the works, Procast will lead the way in programming the project and arranging access dates.

The group’s dedicated Customer Relations Officer will be the main point of contact throughout the programme of works and will liaise directly with the residents, the site team and the clients to ensure a smooth, collaborative and efficient installation.

A Procast spokesman said: “We are thoroughly delighted to be given the opportunity by Ayrshire Housing to strengthen our collaborative working relationship and continue our joint efforts in improving the lives of the area’s residents.

“We also look forward to working with Ewing Summerville Partnership, the clients’ principal designer and quantity surveyor.”
