Robertson pitches in on renovation project


Infrastructure firm, Robertson, has lent a helping hand to charity, Young Enterprise Scotland, to renovate its headquarters.

Robertson Facilities Management helped carry out several works at Young Enterprise Scotland’s base, located at Rouken Glen, East Renfrewshire.

Works included installing a boiler, rewiring the building, painting and fixing broken equipment.

Barry Hamilton, contracts manager with Robertson Facilities Management, said the firm had a number of contracts in the area and wanted to give something back to the local community.

“Young Enterprise Scotland does fantastic work across the country, and their premises were in need of some attention. We were more than happy to help them, and I’m sure the young people who use the facilities will really see the benefits,” Barry said.

The project was also supported by the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, which provided different pieces of equipment for the charity.

Simon Sheehan, director of DM Thomas Foundation for Young People, commented, “We believe that every young person should be able to fulfil their potential by having access to the best possible education and training opportunities.

“We are extremely proud to partner with Young Enterprise Scotland to refurbish their kitchen area for delivery of Pathway Programmes that will provide young people with invaluable into-employment support.”

Geoff Leask, chief executive at Young Enterprise Scotland, added, “This has been a most wonderful project for which we are very grateful to the support of Robertson Group and the DM Thomas Foundation.

“The impact will be long lasting for the many young people who engage in activities at our Rouken Glen Centre for many years to come.”
