Meanwhile Fleming Buildings has also completed refurbishment of the Bluebird Family Centre, a nursery based in Greenock. Internally the building was extensively remodelled to create large classrooms, a meeting space and additional rooms for a variety of purposes on the upper storey. Works also involved complete installation of new services, decoration, floor coverings and joiner finishings, as well as a timber frame extension to the front of the building, with mono-pitch roof. A new cladding system was fitted to the skin of the existing building and windows replaced. Disabled access was created and a lift installed. A new play area with an impact-absorbing surface was built too.
The project was commissioned by Inverclyde Council.
We've been working with the children of Calibar Primary School in Barrhead to develop their understanding of the construction industry. They created a concrete pavior path and were delighted.”
In December 2017 we were delighted to be part of the ‘Helping Hands’ initiative, assisting in the refurbishment of Harestanes Community Centre in Kirkintilloch.
The building is home to pensioners’ clubs, school clubs, toddler groups and Brownies, and Hub West Scotland invited Fleming Buildings to join with other companies to give it a much needed makeover.
Our Director, Ronnie Burrows, said: “We were delighted to contribute to the upgrade of such a well used building. Along with others we brought new life to a space considered the heart of the community. It was hugely satisfying for all involved and we hope, of course, that locals will derive a great deal satisfaction from the improved facility."
