City centre fabric repairs provide a new lease of life at St Enoch Square

21st December 2020 By Clark Contracts

CC Argyle St Facade-2676-HDR-Edit FOR WEB

The refurbishment of cladding, delivered by Clark Contracts, on Jamaica Street and Argyle Street in Glasgow City Centre is now complete.


Two existing canopies on Argyle Street and Jamaica Street were removed in addition to the removal of existing concrete cladding and windows on two elevations.


New limestone and aluminium cladding was installed on both elevations with the removal of stone copes on parapet areas and restoration works to windows and the roof.


To deliver the project, 90 metres of scaffolding was installed to provide access to the building over a 16 month period.


Gerry Cummins, Director, Clark Contracts, said “This was a complex project to deliver due to the scale of the scaffolding and the city centre location. We are pleased to have reached completion and it is fantastic to see the difference the refurbishment has made to the image of the building.”


The cladding project was delivered simultaneously alongside Clark Contracts’ window refurbishment on Argyle Street.
