A fine finish at the Commonwealth Games Pool
Plastic Surgeon Scotland has an established working relationship with Barr Construction Ltd, the contractor responsible for the Commonwealth Games Pool located at The Tollcross Leisure Centre in the city; providing the company with finishing and repair services on a number of high profile projects across the country.
The Operations Manager for Plastic Surgeon in Scotland, relates: “A colleague and myself spent half a day going around the building with a plan marking up the areas and compiling a snagging list for our people to work from. We then generated a quote, projecting 13 days to complete some 40 acrovyn frames where the pin-holes left by the carpenters needed to be filled; plus repairing a number of veneered doors which had suffered scrapes and bumps from following trades.
“Our team of Finishers were on site very soon after receiving the order and managed to complete everything a day ahead of schedule; including undertaking some extra items of work that Barr’s management identified during the period which is part of the customer service we like to provide.”
Because the pin-holes around the acrovyn frames are so tiny, the Finishers filled them using colour matched wax: a technique similar to that often employed by French polishers. Then when it came to the wood veneered internal doors, they switched to employing Plastic Surgeon’s Ultra-Premium Filler which, when hardened, was sanded back and the areas of damaged grain pattern reproduced by eye using fine artists brushes and pigments mixed by eye.
Following this initial contract at the Commonwealth Games swimming pool, Plastic Surgeon returned to site to address snagging work on areas of the building such as exterior cladding panels.
Plastic Surgeon has had wide experience of working on leisure centres and other sporting venues, including the Football Association’s new National Training Centre at Burton-on-Trent, and the futuristic Media Centre overlooking Lord’s cricket ground.
