Ibrox tower block exposed as regeneration plan progresses
May 23 2012
The 67m tall crane has been nibbling away since October and has already reduced one of the 22 storey blocks to rubble since being unleashed by Glasgow Housing Association.
A neighbouring block has been granted a last minute reprieve following the decision to renovate the properties instead for key worker housing.
This will see original concrete panels removed to be replaced with a new render and rainscreen system as part of a £7m refit.
Technical Demolition Services are undertaking the complex structural challenge of bringing the blocks down safely.
