Stanley cadet hut refurbished

December 18, 2020

The HRFCA Estates team have had a very busy 2020, with multiple projects completed.

These included the internal and external refurbishment of numerous cadet huts, and the installation of new modular cadet buildings in Newport and Bo’ness.

The latest project saw the complete refurbishment of The Black Watch Battalion ACF’s Stanley Detachment cadet hut in Perthshire.

Externally, a new metal perimeter fence was installed, the building was insulated and the cladding upgraded using Marley boarding. The soffits and rainwater goods were all renewed as well.

Internally, the ceilings have been renewed, all the lights upgraded to LED units, a new kitchen was fitted, and the toilets were upgraded with wetwall panelling and new sanitary ware. New floor coverings were also fitted throughout, along with new fire doors. The building was also completely redecorated.

The project was delivered by Colcro Property Maintenance at a cost of just under £60,000.

The original timeframe for completion was eight weeks. However, due to COVID-19 there was a four-week delay.

The building was painted throughout and new floor coverings were fitted.
