The Project

This involved a major refurbishment upgrade to an Ayrshire school for children with complex support needs. GMG has extensive experience of working within the educational sector and have carried out upgrade and refurbishment programmes at Kilwinning Academy and St Bridget’s in Kilbirnie – both in Ayrshire.

This project included added complexity as the school remained fully operational throughout the work.


The project required careful preparation and planning to meet the tight timescales and work around the staff and children of Southcraig School.

Our team worked closely with South Ayrshire Council and the school throughout the programme of work.


GMG’s on-site team completed work on the perimeter roof, east roof and a courtyard area of the school. This involved a full re-tile to the pitched roof, a new Firestone Rubberseal covering to flat roof, leadwork and rainwater pipe replacements, and new UPVC cladding.

The programme of works provided our apprentices with valuable experience in flat-roofing skills.

We drew on our experience of successfully delivering works in live public environments with challenging conditions – and the staff and children at Southcraig School in Ayr were delighted with the outcome.
