Building upgrade complete

The Inverness branch of a company which specialises in a variety of services from mechanical and electrical installation, renewable energy and fire and security alarms has a new roof thanks to the skills of the AJ Engineering team.

G & A Barnie Group has offices at the Carsegate in the Highland capital but the roof of the building which consisted of double skinned asbestos needed replacing.

Project manager James Attridge explained: “The building in Inverness is old and it needed a bit of tlc to make it look better and also make it serviceable as it had been leaking. Refurbishment projects are always a challenge as you never know what you are going to uncover, but this project went relatively smoothly.

“We had a fantastic team on site who have a great attention to detail and they are very good at dealing with situations as they arise. They were on site from December to March and they had to work in some pretty horrid weather. January they were working in snow and then In February they had to contend with the wind and rain.”

He added: “The newly clad roof which was done using Kingspan Composite Built Cladding looks so much better than it did.”
