Lovell refurbishes Clydebank towers

7 Oct 14 West Dunbartonshire Council has selected Lovell to carry out a £4.8m programme of external refurbishment work on three 15-storey blocks of flats in Clydebank, Glasgow.

The three blocks – West Court, Clyde Court and Park Court, all at Littleholm Place – house 270 flats in total.

Work has just begun on the year-long scheme which will include the installation of a new structural insulated overcladding system to the buildings’ upper walls and of insulated brick slip and render cladding to the ground-floor walls.

Other improvement work will include replacement windows throughout, new ramps and canopies at the main entrances and replacement ground-level external metal doors and screens. Residents will remain in their homes during the work.

Lovell got the contract through its membership of West Dunbartonshire Council’s framework for carrying out fabric repairs to multi-storey blocks of flats. The company has carried out similar refurbishment work for the council through the framework, including the upgrade of six multi-storey blocks in Clydebank.

Lovell regional director Alan Taylor said: “This latest modernisation programme will help homes become warmer and more energy efficient with improved insulation through the overcladding as well as a range of other improvements.”
