Located in Helensburgh and managed by the National Trust for Scotland, the popular tourist attraction has, over time, fallen into disrepair with acute weathering and damp setting in thanks to the harshness of Scotland’s climate. In order to preserve the building, Robertson Construction was appointed to lead the delivery of an innovative ‘Box’ structure in order to protect the building from weathering and moisture build-up so that essential repairs can be carried out.
Works also included the new build construction of a two-storey visitor centre.
Assisting with both arms of the project, Arc-Tech (Scotland) was employed to deliver a range of Mechanical and Electrical Services including feature lighting, fire systems, data and communications, ventilation, and water services.
In support of the contract, two Arc-Tech apprentices were based on-site for the duration of the Services programme. David Stewart and Stephen Shaw were working on their respective 1st year and 2nd-year electrical apprenticeship programmes with both now being based on new projects.
Arc-Tech successfully completed the contract within a 21-week duration.
