PROCAST have embarked on a two-year maintenance programme in Stirlingshire – once the royal stronghold of Scotland.
The £1.4 million project will involve building work, painting, PVC/joinery, roofing, TV aerial installation, plumbing and heating as well as other general electrical works.
Bathrooms, windows and door works may be added to the contract awarded by Stirlingshire Council, which involves homes in rural and urban locations.
As with other projects masterminded by Procast, this one will be conducted to occupied buildings in “live” residential environments.
Due to the remoteness and geographical locations of some sites, programming of multi-disciplinary trades across numerous sites will be a challenge.
However, the company’s expertise in carefully planning and sequencing activities on contracts such as this will ensure that agility and mobility will be brought to bear, allowing all sites to be worked on simultaneously and with minimal disruption to day-to-day life for the residents.
The project – similar to others granted to Procast –has been procured under the Scottish Procurement Alliance Whole House Refurbishment and Associated Works and will run until September 22.
Procast Director Carol Cameron said: “We are thoroughly delighted to be given the opportunity of working with Stirling Council and making a significant contribution in improving housing in Stirlingshire.”< back
