Work starts to refurbish Gallowhill Court in Paisley
Work has started on the refurbishment of Gallowhill Court, a high-rise tower block in Paisley, Renfrewshire.
Almost 6,000 square metres of Hanson Structherm’s structural external wall insulation (SEWI) is being used in the 32-week project, by Full Façade Solutions for Renfrewshire Council.
Brian Monaghan, Hanson Structherm national sales manager, said: “Our SEWI system provides a cost-effective external refurbishment solution to greatly improve the thermal performance of buildings while also providing structural stability.
“Once complete Gallowhill Court will achieve a U-Value of 0.22W/m2k, helping the council to cut tenants’ fuel bills and reduce carbon emissions.”
The refurbishment of the tower block is part of a £138 million Delivering Housing Improvements project to ensure all Renfrewshire Council houses meet the Scottish housing quality standard.
