THREE residential locations in Ayrshire are about to undergo extensive refurbishments courtesy of Procast.
The homes in the villages of Symington and Annbank and in Ettrick Place, Ayr, will receive external wall insulation upgrades over a 30-week period.
The £1.5million programme for clients South Ayrshire Council and the locally based Energy Agency will affect 96 houses of mixed tenure – some local authority housing and some private, meaning that, in some cases, the works will rely on permission and sign-up from homeowners.
Some properties will require to have existing cavity insulation removed prior to the application of new external wall insulation.
Procast will also be required to organise the installation of fresh or “top-up” loft insulation where recommended by an Energy Performance Certificate.
The company will also arrange and supply Building Warrant Applications and Completion Certificate Submissions in respect of these properties.
Energy efficiency measures form part of Procast’s core services, which they are delivering to Renfrewshire and East Renfrewshire, Falkirk, East Dunbartonshire, Dumfries and Galloway, South Ayrshire and North Lanarkshire Councils.
The project will be delivered by Procast’s highly skilled and experienced team and aligned to PAS2030: 2017, Local Authority Building Standards Service (LABSS) Technical Policy Note T01/2013 and Procedural Policy Note PR06/2013 standards and specifications.
