Building services help breathe new life into popular Govan landmark
Arc-Tech (Scotland) Ltd has helped breathe new life into a popular Govan landmark thanks to a bespoke Building Services solution.
The former Hills Trust Primary School, a 19th century Grade B Listed building, has been respectfully conserved, upgraded and will now be home of Elderpark Housing with the provision of new, office and meeting facilities for staff and tenants.
Working in partnership with the main contractor CCG, Arc-Tech led the installation of heating, ventilation, plumbing as well as the complete electrical installation inclusive of fire, security, lighting and data systems, amongst other services.
John Gallacher, Arc-Tech managing director, said: “The former Hills Trust School is a popular landmark for the Govan community so it was a privilege to help conserve this building for the enjoyment of future generations. The new office space will greatly assist Elderpark Housing in their efforts to support their tenants with the building services provided by Arc-Tech creating a safe, comfortable working environment.
“I am also proud to state that the contract helped sustain three trade apprenticeships. We are delighted to have given our boys – Marc, William and Finn - such valuable and unique working experience as part of their industry-recognised, 4-year programmes.”
The new offices are located next to a major new development of affordable homes that are also being delivered on behalf of Elderpark Housing. Arc-Tech has helped support the construction programme by installing renewable services in the form of solar PV.
The 82-home development is set to be handed over in the early stages of this year.
