New look for homes is a capital gain

7th March 2023

Three retirement housing blocks in Edinburgh are to be given extensive internal makeovers by Procast.

The properties in Scotland’s capital – that are run by Viewpoint Housing Association – will undergo decoration works that will include:

  • All wall surfaces
  • Ceilings
  • Handrails
  • Balustrades
  • Doors
  • Door architraves and skirtings

The sheltered housing developments involved are Croft An Righ (pictured), Holyrood; Northwood House, Grange, and Lynedoch Place, Dean Village.

All individual dwellings within the three buildings will be fully occupied for the duration of the £140,000, four-week contract, so all decoration teams will have to ensure they cause minimal disruption to everyday activities or to the use of the buildings.

As a result, sequencing of the works will be coordinated with each building’s caretaker management.

The project will be headed up operationally at Procast by Robert Hay and commercially by Mark Timmins, supported by Buyer Jennifer Strain and by Operations Director Frank McManus, together with Gary McManus, of MPC Coatings Ltd.

As well as MPC, Procast are looking forward to building a solid working partnership with consultants F3 Building Surveyors Partnership (Scotland Ltd) to deliver this fast-paced project on time and to budget with as little disruption as possible.

A Procast spokesman said: “We are thoroughly delighted to have been awarded this internal decoration contract by Viewpoint Housing Association.

“MPC have been a key sub-contract partner of Procast’s for the past nine years as both businesses have grown their reputation and relative market share.”

MPC Coatings Managing Director Gary McManus said: “I am delighted to be entrusted by Procast to deliver this project to Viewpoint HA on programme and to a standard that Viewpoint, Procast and we at MPC can be proud of.”
