Ogilvie has recently completed the Kilmacolm Community Centre providing: a library, café, main hall and individual multi purpose office spaces.
Ogilvie Construction undertook the total refurbishment of the two storey community centre building including the conversion of a B listed school board building into a new library and commercial unit. A mezzanine floor was installed and all the external walls were relined to give a high value to the building. All new services were installed to comply with current legislation.
The library area had the existing floor taken out and solum lowered, with a new structural slab installed complete with insulation below and under floor heating installed. Large structural alterations were done to the external walls to allow a feature curtain wall system to be installed to the gable of the building.
To promote sustainability and minimise wastage on site, all repairs to boundary walls were done by re using stone/rubble from all down takings to the two buildings. The scotch slates from the existing Community Centre were also reused on the school board building and supplemented by carefully selecting re-cycled scotch slates.
