“Despite a restrictive programme and a densely occupied city centre office building, Insite Group were excellent in delivering a well organised, high quality refurbishment project without any fuss. The client was delighted.”
Chris Watt, Director CSQ Consult
Number 20 Waterloo Street, Central Exchange, was a refurbishment project involving a large reception area for BNP Paribas.
Ryan Thomson and his team completed the project in 5 months, in challenging conditions due to this being a fully occupied 7 floor office in the heart of Glasgow, with a 24 hour entrance.
The works included fitting a bespoke raft and large cube lighting which required new steel work put in with drop down rods to support both items. We also installed artificial trees, pre formed copper surrounds for all old metalwork, speed gates, reception desks and planters.
We completed the installation with a projector attached to a pre formed plasterboard area for the screen as the main focal point upon entry.
Three new showers and a locker room were installed in the basement and these were fitted with bespoke heated lockers which made the most of the allocated space.
A wonderful project and an absolutely stunning end product.
The project required the replacement of to both the northwest and northeast roofs, internal and external builder’s works; render repairs; full redecoration; joinery works; internal sub-division; construction of additional toilets; new utilities supplies; floor covering replacement; warehouse heating replacement and lighting repairs.
The Roof work consisted of removal of the existing double skin asbestos cement roof covering down to the concrete portal frame. We then installed timber to the Concrete Purlins using Stainless Steel tie down straps. Then a 137mm Kingspan Global Quadcore Panel System was installed incorporating Brett Martin Ltd Trilite Ultra 45 FAIR Rooflight. The roof was completed using Fatra UK Composite gutters and Trimform Products Trimline External Gutters.
Chris Watt, Project Manager and Lead Consultant at CSQ Consult said of the project:
‘The team at Insite Group worked hard to successfully deliver this evolving multi-trade project in phases to a tight deadline in some very challenging winter weather conditions. The refurbishment has transformed the asset giving it a new lease of life.’

'Big thanks to Morgan Baker, David Munro, Stewart MacKenzie and their team at Insite Cladding and roofing. Throughout the course of the project their can do attitude resulted in a highly successful project in difficult circumstances.'
- Matt White, Director at EPC Associates
After the successful purchase of St Andrews Industrial estate EPC Associates were retained by Stenprop to continue with the planned Roof overcladding works and specialist cladding decoration works at both the Blocks occupied by their existing tenants.
The works were an integral part of the lease re-gear completed by the former pension fund managed by CBREgi. The roof overcladding was undertaken during the live occupation of the tenant and as such required meticulous planning and preparation by the full team.
The roofing works were completed ahead of programme, and the specialist decoration works are now almost completed. The project required the Overcladding of the existing Asbestos Cement Roof Coverings and Decorating all External Wall Cladding.
This required the supply and fit of metal insulated over cladding system to include Fatra single ply gutter liners.
EPC Associates Ltd provided PM, CA, PD and cost management services.

Maxim 10 - Eurocentral
"Having negotiated this £3.6 Million project with Insite Contracts, they managed an early start on site which allowed the tenant to occupy a full floor while the Cat A and Cat B fit-out was completed to the other two floors.
Insite Group's 'can do' attitude was led from the top by Scott and George and delivered excellently by Ryan
The project was completed on time and within the budget and at the level of quality expected by both Landlord and Tenant"
David Moore, Project Management Associate at Ryden
We carried out a 60,000 square foot CAT A & CAT B Fit Out project over four floors Maxim 10 at Eurocentral on behalf of Ryden for their client Customer Service Contractor Sitel UK & Ireland. The large office space at Maxim Park in Lanarkshire houses up to 800 employees.
The works were completed in three phases over a nine-month period with the client taking possession and occupying the lower two floors whilst the upper levels were completed. Project value was in excess of £3.6 million.
Works included the installation of new mechanical & electrical services throughout providing ventilation, air conditioning, power, data, fire alarm & lighting installation throughout. The second-floor comms room was prioritised and handed over to client early to facilitate their occupation and use of the lower floor levels whilst other areas were progressed.
Additionally, we provided a backup generator with integrated auto changeover system to power the whole building in the event of a power outage, allowing the uninterrupted continuation of business which was an essential requirement of the client.
The fabric element of the works included the supply and installation of new raised access floors, suspended ceilings, glass and plasterboard partitions, full furniture & fitment installation for a capacity of 900 and a fully serviced canteen and servery to cater for the staff as well as localised breakout, tea prep and vending areas on each floor level.
A wonderful project to be involved with.

Back in late 2019 we began work on an existing Nursing Home in Bo’ness for our client Gleeds. The Building was an existing traditional nursing home set up with eleven single room which were converted into eight modern flats occupancy.
Our team Damien Ferns, Guy Melville, Fraser Stevenson and Jack Emerson were tasked with altering the internal layout of the building to accommodate the new proposal of eight individual accommodation units, comprising of one bedroom, one toilet/shower, one open plan kitchen/living room. These alterations allowed tenants a self-sufficient living, however, support would be provided when and where required.
The project ran for 24 weeks, was completed to an admirable standard, leaving the client pleased with the finish and future tenants with an upgraded comforting home. The project was completed at a high standard and under budget.
We cannot thank Lorraine Martin and the team at Gleeds enough for the opportunity to work on this remarkable and life changing facility.
'We are absolutely delighted with the replacement Single Ply Roof works at the Arc, this despite site works being halted by the Covid lockdown.
Insite Cladding and Roofing ensured the site integrity was maintained during the period, and returned to site immediately once it was safe to do so, complying with all necessary post Covid site rules.
Our Principal Designer fully reviewed the updated construction plan to ensure compliance. Given the difficult circumstances and awkward shape of the building, the project was completed on budget and to a high standard by Insite Cladding and Roofing, big thanks to David Munro and his team.'
