Playfauld House and Hamewith House

Aberdeenshire Council required to convert Sheltered Housing into Very Sheltered Housing to extend the range of their available accommodation, and to refurbish and extend Pleyfauld House in Inverurie and Hamewith Court in Alford. Pleyfauld House was an existing sheltered housing scheme, and required the installation of a sprinkler system along with general upgrading to finishes and a new extension to create a sun room, and Hamewith Court required the installation of a sprinkler system along with general upgrading to finishes and a new extension to create an entrance and a new scooter store. Both projects involved complex multi-trade co-ordination with a strong emphasis on services integration and interface with not only the other trades but also the occupiers of the buildings during the course of the works.

Both projects involved a complex work scope both internally and externally. The extension works to create entrance vestibule and sun room were full multi-trade projects from builders work through to final decoration, and the internal works centred around the installation of new sprinkler systems in both properties to upgrade them to “very secure” status. Transform’s contracts included demolition, ground works and drainage, roofing, builders work, lift installation, joiner work, glazing, plumbing, floorcoverings, catering equipment, mechanical and electrical services, fire alarms, sprinkler systems and decoration. All supervised and coordinated by our in house team of contracts and site managers to ensure smooth delivery of these complex projects.
