South Rotunda Phases 1, 2, and 3
Overall the three phases of this project consisted of the full external refurbishment of the existing building as well as detailed internal refurbishment to create new high spec office accommodation within an iconic Glasgow building which features on the Glasgow Heritage Society website.
The works were principally to the exterior of the building and consisted of repairs to existing masonry, replacing windows and the creation of a new pallet glazing ribbon and cupula.
A major element of the work was the replacement of the cupola to the roof apex. The roof covering and ribbon rooflight glazing improvements included replacement Scottish slate and associated leadworks, coupled with Conservation Velux rooflights and new patent glazing. Finally the roof structure itself was repaired.
Following the successful completion of the restoration works at the South Rotunda building, we negotiated the second phase which entailed the erection of three structural floors and shell preparation works to form offices.
This was a complex structural steel installation, with logistical challenges for the delivery of the 55 tonnes of pre-designed and fabricated steel as well as the installation of new concrete floors. About 150 m3 of concrete was pumped into the building, including to the third floor, some 15 metres high.
The final phase of the project consisted of completion of the internal space to form the finished office accommodation.
A new lift shaft was formed with block work , all mechanical and electrical installation as well as decoration of the office suite to complete the transformation.
