Hitting the heights in Kirkhill

27th May 2021

MORE than 60 residential properties are to be upgraded in a £1.2million programme of improvements to be delivered by Procast.

The project will involve external wall insulation, exterior painting, concrete repairs, walkway upgrades, the refurbishment of flat roofs and the replacement of rainwater drainage to numerous three-storey and four-storey blocks in Kirkhill, Cambuslang.

Once under way – towards the end of June/beginning of July, 2021 – the renovation work will run for 32 weeks and will result in a striking transformation of the South Lanarkshire Council houses.

This project was secured against seven other competitive tenders and through Procast’s longstanding framework agreement with the council.

A Procast spokesman said: “We are delighted to be working with the council again on this exciting opportunity, where our experience and expertise in these works will help raise the standards of housing for the local community while improving the thermal performance of the buildings.”

The refurbishment forms part of a massive £100million package of improvements across South Lanarkshire, which will see £73million being invested in new housing stock and the remainder on miscellaneous upgrades to existing properties.

A spokesman said: “Every property will meet the highest standards, with quality insulation and energy-efficient measures – which is good for the planet and helps the tenants beat fuel poverty.”
