Barclay Street Glasgow

Our Office in Dunfermline has recently completed a project that started back in March 2016. Principal Contractor for the project was McTaggart Construction Limited's Glasgow office, on behalf of Loretto Housing. The £6 million development in Barclay Street is made up of 49 homes for social rent, and a mix of flats and houses, with four of the flats suitable for wheelchairs.

Phi Group's contract was for the design, supply & installation of 15 retaining walls in total. 14 of the retaining walls were our Permacrib BBA Certified timber crib wall system, and the remaining wall was our Titan modular block faced reinforced soil system. The works on site were undertaken in two phases, with several visits required per phase. The site layout meant that some of the walls were situated between plots, which made sequencing with other trades on site very important to minimise disruption.

Phase 1 - This phase commenced in March 2016 with completion in February 2017, and was undertaken in 4 visits. It consisted of 11 Permacrib timber crib walls with a face area of nearly 700 square metres and maximum retained height of 3.50m. There was also a small Titan reinforced soil wall required on this phase of works.

Phase 2 - This phase commenced in February 2017 with completion at the end of the year,. This required 3 site visits and consisted of 3 no. Permacrib walls with a face area of 325 square metres and maximum retained height of 3.35m.

Of particular interest on this project is the fencing detail, a first for Phi Group. This fencing detail specified by the Architect for the project, Page\Park, had the fence leaning back at the same angle as the Permacrib structures. It gives a striking finish to the Permacrib walls, and is a detail that we now regularly offer to clients.

The overall contract value for Phi Group was in the region of £240,000. Phi Group provided the full design, supply and installation package for McTaggart Construction. The project was a great success and we now have an excellent relationship with all parties involved. We have recently completed another project for McTaggart Construction at Cowal View in Gourock and will be commencing works on their project at Linkwood Drive, Drumchapel in May.
