Auchengillan Scout Centre Climbing Tower Completed

Finally! I get round to blogging again with some images of what we have been doing of late! Its been a super busy lead up to summer with loads of excellent projects on the go. We finally got the refurbishment of the 15m High Auchengillan Scout Centre Tower in Glasgow completed. The weather provided us a bit of a fight with the fibreglass, but the end result turned out well. We used 2 Tons of Resin! The weekend we finished the wall they had over 1000 Girl Guides onsite and it saw about half this number of children climb it over the two days, so its been well tested. (In fact they got our nice new tower very muddy) The tower was originally build in 1999 so the plywood side panels were completely destroyed and needed replacing, plus we had to re-engineer the tower and produce new calculations to bring it up to standard. This wall is a hidden gem – shame its not open for public use it has a fantastic outlook over the Campsie’s.

The shot taken in the dark was taken at 3.40 am at the end of a very very long shift starting at 7am the day before – the things you do for good customers! The sun was just starting to come up!
