IFT works at £40m premier shopping centre development
IFT was appointed by a building and civil engineering company to carry out work on a £40m shopping centre development.
Set to add 30,000 sq ft to the centre, bringing the overall space to 880,000 sq ft, the revamp will introduce a nine-screen cinema, nine restaurants as well as new retail and leisure facilities, in order to cement its position as Glasgow’s premier shopping and leisure destination.
The IFT team has been working at the centre for 3 months carrying out numerous patch repairs using Isocrete K Screed on all levels after the demolition and alteration works were complete to make good areas of floor. More recently, some existing screed was found to be defective and out of tolerance for tiling. The building and civil engineering company removed this screed & IFT infilled it with Mapei Topcem, scabbled down some high areas of existing concrete, and then applied an average 10-12mm Mapei Ultraplan Renovation screed to achieve an SR1 finish as required by their tiler. Mapei Topcem was chosen in this instance to fast track the drying times allowing a faster application of the Ultraplan Renovation with the tiler following immediately afterwards.
These works had to be done following the building and civil engineering company’s strict COVID guidelines. Our Risk Assessment and Method Statements had to be updated to reflect these changes and our operatives were given a COVID specific tool box talk by IFT and a COVID site specific re-induction by the company prior to commencing works. All of our RAMS were produced using the latest Scottish Government guidance, CLC guidance, site specific guidance and workforce consultation – this ensured our works could be carried out safely but still effectively.
