Dangerous Glasgow building lent a new lease of life
September 2 2020
Urgent facade repairs have been carried out to a prominent building in Glasgow's commercial heart, which was at high risk of falling debris.
Severe cracking of the reinforced concrete structure had caused an increasing volume of tiles to come loose at 167 Argyle Street, forcing the building owners to step up with a new panel system facade.
Retaining existing black polished granite cladding at the St Enoch Square end the project replaced thousands of at-risk tiles with stone rainscreen at lower levels and aluminium cladding above.
Chamfered limestone cladding will emphasise the depth of window reveals while shopfronts have been unified with matching polished granite. An architectural lighting scheme is soon to be installed with uplighters providing vertical illumination.
The refurbishment was carried out by Clark Contracts to designs by Mosaic Architecture + Design.
