Upgrades for homes an inside story

7th April 2022

PROCAST are due to begin a comprehensive series of internal upgrades to more than 150 residential properties in South Ayrshire.

The project will improve the homes located in villages and towns across the local authority area, including Ayr itself.

Starting in May, 2022, and running for 22 weeks, the £1.7million contract will involve a variety of modernisations to 162 houses, including:

  • New smoke and heat detectors designed and installed to meet LD2 (interlinked and mains-powered) compliance
  • New electrical installations
  • Central heating system improvements
  • New kitchen installations
  • New kitchen and bathroom extractor fans
  • New vinyl floor covering and wet floor installations
  • New sanitary fittings
  • New shower installations
  • New joinery finishes

All the properties will be occupied as normal for the duration of the contract, so all works will have to be carefully coordinated and carried out safely to ensure as little inconvenience as possible is caused to the residents.

At the close of each day, all works will be made safe and all services restored. The project will run simultaneously in two phases, with two dedicated management teams overseeing the progress of what is to be a fast-paced programme.

The project was secured via the Scottish Procurement Alliance whole house framework and is similar to Procast’s ongoing internal refurbishment project for Queens Cross Housing Association in Glasgow.

A spokesman for Procast said: “We are thoroughly delighted to have been awarded this internal upgrade contract by South Ayrshire Council and we look forward to working alongside the client’s construction consultants TCS to deliver this fast-paced, mult- trade refurbishment project.”

Vilages and towns involved include Ballantrae, Girvan, Troon, Mossblown, Annbank, Maybole and Ayr.
