Geared Construction were engaged to demolish, re-build and refurbish the existing clubroom and change rooms including extensive internal remodelling, full services upgrades, new concrete slabs, brickwork, and fit-out of new WC’s, Change rooms and UAT.
Works were completed 5 weeks ahead of programme with minimal defects.
The works also included demolition of the existing roof coverings and asbestos linings and re-roofing of the whole building while keeping the clubroom section of the building open to users of the facility.
Works were completed through the winter months which presented the risk of delay due to inclement weather, however through pro-active procurement and careful co-ordination of trades on site the works were able to be completed five weeks ahead of schedule to a high standard.
The new facility also included ambulant and disabled facilities that had to be completed to strict compliance requirements. This was carefully monitored and managed on site to ensure that there were no hold ups with compliance information on completion of the project.
Although the site was separated from the public, the remainder of the park was still in public use for the duration of the project. Site deliveries and traffic management around the area had to be carefully monitored and managed in order to minimise the risk of injury to the general public.
Jon Rose, from Paterson Group Architects provided the following testimonial on completion of the works:
“Luke, Declan and all the team at Geared Construction acted in a professional, proactive and most importantly non-adversarial manner at all times in delivery of this project for our valued client City of Stirling. I would have no hesitation in recommending Geared Construction to any Client seeking the services of a quality building company”
