Gilmour Sports – Paisley

Ashton building Systems were asked by Gilmour Sports to provide a solution for the re-roofing works of their newly purchased manufacturing facility in Paisley. After our detailed survey we provided proposals which included detailed drawings and specifications to the Client along with samples for each option.

We carried out new vcl layer, spacer system, quilt insulation and single skin roof sheets along with all fabricated perimeter detailing to give the existing building a new lease of life.

Full perimeter scaffold, safety netting and edge projection was also installed to ensure the project was carried out safely.
