Contractor completes Glasgow city centre fabric repairs

CLARK Contracts has announced that the refurbishment of cladding on Jamaica Street and Argyle Street in Glasgow City Centre is now complete.

Two existing canopies were removed in addition to concrete cladding and windows on two elevations.

New limestone and aluminium cladding was installed on both elevations with the removal of stone copes on parapet areas and restoration works to windows and the roof.

90 metres of scaffolding was installed to provide access to the building over a 16-month period.

Director Gerry Cummins said, “This was a complex project to deliver due to the scale of the scaffolding and the city centre location. We are pleased to have reached completion and it is fantastic to see the difference the refurbishment has made to the image of the building.”

The cladding project was delivered simultaneously alongside Clark Contracts’ window refurbishment on Argyle Street.
