Castlegate House Roofing Project

Castlegate House, originally a church, was converted into modern housing in 1993. The property is run by the specialist housing and care provider, Blackwood Group. Castlegate House is made up of 11 flats designed for those with housing needs and wheelchair users to maintain their independence. Through the SPA Pitched Roofing Framework (PR3), Blackwood Group appointed Graham Roofing to undertake extensive repairs to the property’s roof. These works were a proactive response to problems arising from the age of the roof and the discontinuation of the existing roof tiles. The works ensure the residents can continue living in safe and comfortable surroundings.

For the project, Graham Roofing stripped the existing roof covering down to the plywood, carried our repairs and instalment a new breather membrane, counter and tile battens and a new lead to the skews and valleys. As well as this, they tiled the roof with Russell Grampian Tiles and fitted a new dry vented ridge system. Current and future residents of Castlegate House will benefit from these roofing upgrades for many years to come.

Dingwall is remote in location so Blackwood Group have often struggled to find the specialised contractors they need locally. They needed a solution that offered reasonable costs, a quick route to market and specialised contractors. They found this through SPA and our appointed company, Graham Roofing.

Through the PR3 framework, Blackwood had access to a quick and compliant route to market as well as access to our technical and procurement experts throughout the project duration. Our intelligent procurement solutions and great variety of appointed companies mean that we can assist projects across Scotland no matter the geographical location or project size.

The roof at Castlegate House had numerous leaks which affected our tenants, and due to its age and condition the roof covering was no longer repairable.

"Graham Roofing were not only able to help organise a large roofing project during the current pandemic, but they also managed to ensure the roof works were completed prior to the winter months and the incoming bad weather. This made sure our tenants didn’t have to experience the troublesome leaks anymore and helped alleviate the stress that this brought." Richard Dingwall, Assets Officer, Blackwood Group
