Sign for Fauldhouse Partnership centre

The essential work to replace the reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) roof planks over the games hall has been finished on time and within budget.

The full replacement of the roof above the sports hall was required after inspections found water damage was affecting the roof, reaffirming the council's proactive approach to dealing with the RAAC situation in our properties.

Leader of West Lothian Council Lawrence Fitzpatrick said: "I'm delighted that the essential roof replacement work at Fauldhouse Partnership Centre has now been completed so quickly.

"By choosing a full replacement roof over cheaper short-term repairs, we have demonstrated our commitment to ensuring that Fauldhouse will have a hub for the delivery of essential services for the future.

"Council officers have contacted the groups who use the games hall, and I look forward to seeing activities taking place in the hall over the rest of the summer."

Development partner Hub South East delivered the project in partnership with the council, with Hadden Construction appointed as the primary contractor.

Roddy Clark, Hub South East's Operations Director, said: "This project demonstrates Hub South East's strength as a true development partner, having assisted West Lothian Council with a rapid and effective response to its RAAC roof issue. 

"The flexibility of the Hub process has meant that we were able to design and implement a solution from inception through to completion in less than 12 months, which is an incredible achievement. 

"As the first contract for Hadden Construction since joining our supply chain, we'd like to congratulate everyone involved in delivering this complex project, which was handed over in record time and within budget, ensuring that our client has been successfully supported in its pro-active approach to addressing this industry wide issue. 

"This couldn't have been achieved without the ongoing support from our supply chain partners and West Lothian Council."
