Westside Shopping Plaza, Edinburgh
Fixing the roof without closing up shop
It's been said that we are a nation of shoppers. So, when we were appointed to refurbish the roof of Westside Shopping Plaza in Edinburgh, we were faced with an important challenge - how to carry out the work quickly, safely and to the highest standard while the centre remained open for business.
The plaza consists of five separate flat roofs totalling 7000 square metres. All five roofs needed to be replaced, and we were also tasked with the removal of old, disused air conditioning units from across the site. Working with flat roofing specialist suppliers Bauder, we put together a detailed plan that tackled the logistical challenges of the project. Our plan included measures such as arranging the delivery of materials at times that ensured minimal disruption to resident retailers and their customers. Despite the restrictions and challenges that this refurbishment project posed, we completed all work across the site on time and on budget.
