Hitting the heights with flats refurbishment

11th January 2021

A MAJOR contract to refurbish multi-storey residential properties in Grangemouth for Falkirk Council has been won by Procast.

The £1.4 million programme of works will take 45 weeks to complete and will involve significant upgrades to the local authority-owned homes.

A start date has yet to be confirmed for the project but once under way, it will involve:

  • The formation of a new pitched-roof structure
  • Replacement roughcasting
  • External plumbing work
  • Gas alterations
  • Landscaping

One of the most demanding aspects of the contract will be the installation of a new pitched roof, including timber trusses, on top of an existing flat roof structure.

As a result, full planning and preparation for crane operations have had to be laid out, including programme schedule, road permit and a traffic management plan.

A spokesman for Procast said: “The securing of this exciting project gives us another opportunity to strengthen our working relationship with Falkirk Council.”
