Demolition of Former Care Home

Partick Housing Association has now received approval from Glasgow City Council to proceed with the demolition and site clearance of the former care home at 32 Laurel Street.

The Association has appointed Reigart Contracts Ltd. to undertake this work and the site commencement date is today Monday 6th November 2017. The contract programme is 6 weeks and the contractor aims to be off site by Friday 15th December. The hours of operation stipulated in the approval from Glasgow City Council are Monday to Friday: 8am to 7pm; Saturday: 8am to 1pm. The Contractor is aware that these working hours must be adhered to.

During the course of the works, the site will be protected and secured using metal heras fencing fixed to the existing site boundaries. The contractor’s site cabin will be located within the site.

The works involve the hand demolition of the building to a safe height; this will include stripping roof tiles and lowering chimneys. Once the building is reduced to a safe height, machine demolition will commence thereafter ensuring that all rubble is kept within the perimeter of the site and ready for loading onto tippers and taken off-site. The gardens will be cleared of trees, shrubs, all outbuildings and general debris; the ground will be cleared and levelled thereafter.

With regards to the proposed new build flats, we have held early discussions with Glasgow City Council Planning Department and we will consult with the local community once these are further developed.
