As reported by Scaffmag, Rangers Business Club Partner JR Scaffold Services are playing a pivotal role in the transformation of the the Paisley Museum Building.
The historic Paisley Museum, a Grade A-listed building and one of Paisley’s most well-known cultural landmarks, is undergoing significant renovation. As the main scaffold supplier on this important project, JR Scaffold Services, a division of leading Scottish construction firm The JR Group, has been instrumental in erecting an impressive scaffold structure around the museum. The renovation is part of Renfrewshire Council’s £100 million investment in local cultural venues.
This ambitious project aims to completely renovate the museum, including the Grade A observatory dome, new roofs, façade stone works, glazing for multiple skylights, and a steel frame extension.
To accommodate the diverse requirements of the job, JR Scaffold Services has provided various types of scaffolds, such as edge protection, independent wall, internal birdcage, cantilever, and bespoke scaffolds designed by an expert engineer for heavy loads and lifting points for stone replacement.
John Jack, Contract Manager for JR Scaffold Services, expressed the company’s pride in being part of the museum’s restoration: “We are incredibly proud to be playing our part in the restoration of Paisley Museum – it is an incredibly complex job with many parts to it, but our expertise lends itself perfectly to the intricacies of it.”
In addition to their work at Paisley Museum, JR Scaffold Services Ltd has supported iconic buildings like the University of Glasgow, The Hamilton Mausoleum, The Hunterian Museum, and the Dounreay Nuclear Power Plant.
