Hall Refurbishment

We're nearly there!

Church Hall Exterior
Robert Paton

The much needed upgrade/refurbishment of our busy Church Hall moves closer with the approval of the works by The Glasgow Presbytery Property Committee and the submission by our architect of our planning  application to the Council’s Planning and Building Control Division. 

Robert Paton, who chairs the Project Group said “our Church Hall has served us well over the last 48 years since it was built (1971),  however it is really showing its age, so our project plan for the building will see a number of much needed works being carried out: 

  • Complete new heating system
  • New gas supply from Eaglesham Road, replacing oil boiler system
  • Much needed new kitchen
  • Improved entrance area to improve disabled access.
  • Replacement windows to improve heat retention
  • Additional insulation to improve heat efficiency
  • Rewiring and improved lighting
  • Creation of flexible cafe/meeting room area
  • Improved meeting space given increased activities
  • Improved sound and hearing aid systems
  • Improved office area

 all of which to make the building “fit for purpose” for the next 45 years!”

Strict control is being exercised over the design and spend allocated for the works by the Kirk Session”, continued Robert, "our architect and cost consultants know they have to keep within budget with them hoping to put the detailed plans out to tender to a number of construction companies at the beginning of March, all with the intention of starting work on site for the fist week in May.  If it appears the costs for the works are above budget, we will revisit the specification for the works and amend this to keep within budget”. 

The Kirk Session and The Glasgow Presbytery Property Committee will need to approve the final specification and contract appointments before any works commence on site.
