Glasgow West Housing Association have carried major stonework fabric repairs to 13no. tenemental buildings with 4no. sectional rebuild to front elevations. These works affected 113no. properties and undertaken in conjunction with private owners within the development.
The works included extensive stone and render repairs with replacement guttering and roof works.
Due to the deterioration of the stonework the initial scope increased significantly from minor repairs to extensive rebuild and stone replacement works.
The condition of the stonework had deteriorated as a result of water damage to the stonework over years saturation from historic Linostone repairs which trapped moisture between the surface and stone behind.
This caused the structural of the stone to fragment and in areas lost its integrity increasing the possibility of collapse. Rebuild works commenced in November 2015 and completed October 2017.
The project was eligible for Glasgow City Council Grant Funding to assisted private owners with £158K of funding.
The project reached Practical Completion in June 2017 and the works have ensured the condition of the stonework is structurally sound to ensure the safety of the residents and public.
