Linthouse to begin tenement window replacement works
The first phase of a window replacement and stonework repairs project at Linthouse Housing Association is to begin this month.
An extensive window replacement works in relation to the pre-1919 sandstone tenement properties has been a key priority for Linthouse Housing Association this year.
The Association said the programme of works represents its commitment to ensuring that their properties are reflective of, and satisfy, modern living standards.
The first phase of the project includes the fitting of new double-glazed windows to 16 of the Association’s properties, located at 8 and 10 Skipness Drive. Given that the properties are within a conservation area, the project will necessitate timber windows in line with Glasgow City Council’s planning policy.
Phase 1 will also include essential stonework repairs, further ensuring that the Association fulfils its objective to retain and protect Glasgow’s built heritage.
Main contractor Contract Building Services successfully won the contract for the project following an advert for the works on PCS. The date for completion of the window replacement and stonework repairs project is October 2019. The contract value, including works, fees and vat, is circa £325,000.
Gail Sherrif, depute CEO at Linthouse, said: “Following the implementation of Phase 1, the Association will be determining and setting out further programmes of work to other tenements in its ownership.”
