Our Technical Project Management Division has secured two external façade refurbishment projects on schools in Scotland.
Both of the schools have 1960’s steel-reinforced concrete paneled façades. Over many years they have been suffering from distress and water ingress issues.
Following surveys carried out by the company’s Survey Division, the Technical Project Management was recently secured. The works are scheduled to commence on both schools in summer 2018.
Concorr Associate Bill McKeown and his team in the Technical Product Management Division will oversee the Project. Bill has been working closely with the client for several months preparing for the tender and Project Processes.
Bill commented on how this is an excellent opportunity to work with one of our clients on two projects to deliver a major scheme within program and budget.
This month a major external refurbishment project draws to a close with the summer months approaching. De La Warr heights is a landmark building on the sea front in Bexhill on sea.
The building is for mixed use, with residential areas on multiple floors and retail space on the ground floor.
The building also has underground parking.

Owned by a prominent London based property company, the building has been the subject of an extensive façade renovation scheme.
This included the removal of the failed render system and application of a new external insulation render. The project was technically as well as contractually demanding due to the building and its location.
The results are a fresh look to this iconic sea front building, as well as much improved insulation property.
