Teamwork is key for rugby clubhouse refurb

13th May 2022

A project to transform a flood-ruined rugby clubhouse into a carbon-neutral building fit for the future has been passed to Procast.

The work will involve a comprehensive internal and external refurbishment of Strathaven Rugby Club, which is situated in the town’s Hamilton Road.

The £390,000, 16-week programme of works will get under way in June 2022 and will involve:


  • Replacement of all floor and ceiling finishes
  • Installation of underfloor heating
  • Full new electrical design and installation, including LED lighting and emergency lighting
  • Protective installations, including fire alarms
  • Ventilation system
  • Plumbing and heating
  • Formation and fit-out of bathroom facilities
  • New changing rooms
  • New door sets and joinery finishes
  • Kitchen facilities inclusive of hygienic wall cladding
  • Supply and installation of new bar
  • Full redecoration


  • Installation of ground-source heat pump system
  • Design and Installation of 20Kw photovoltaic solar roof panels
  • Installation of dual electric vehicle charge points
  • Installation of Tesla Power Wall battery storage system

State-of-the-art green technologies play a key part in the refurbishment, which will in some ways be similar to the upgrade being carried out at the Jungle Cafe at Edinburgh Zoo.

A Procast spokesman said: “We are absolutely delighted to have worked in partnership with this local community club in the design and planning of this refurbishment programme after the club was completely devastated by a flood during the national lockdown of 2020.

“Strathaven Rugby Club have also decided to invest in and create a carbon-neutral clubhouse to future-proof them, which is fantastic for their members.

“We will commence works in the coming weeks to ensure the clubhouse is ready for the club and the wider community to celebrate their 30th year anniversary this September.

“All businesses within the Procast Group will work together collaboratively to deliver a modern, efficient clubhouse that we can all be proud of, and the club can enjoy in the years ahead.”
