Project: Westerton Care Home, Bearsden, Glasgow
Client: CorraMore Construction
Our client CorraMore was appointed to build an extension to Westerton Care Home in Bearsden, in Glasgow including 17 additional bedrooms.
BM Steel Fabrications was appointed by CorraMore to manufacture, deliver and install 60 tonnes of structural steel for the new extension to the care home. In addition, we supplied al of the internal balustrades and external railings. The project was challenging as firstly it is located next to a railway line. Secondly the Care Home was occupied at the time of the construction of the extension, so works had to be mindful of noise, dust and additional health and safety considerations.
“Due to the sensitive nature of this project, working along side a fully functional care home on a restricted site, it was essential for us to engage with a subcontractor who could handle to complexities of this build. Extremely poor ground conditions lead to an unforeseen delay. Mike and his team at BM Steel worked tirelessly to successfully pull this time back. Package included, structural steel, handrails and balustrading to new precast stairs. All completed ahead of schedule”.
