coatbridge high school structural steelwork project

Coatbridge High School, Coatbridge

Coatbridge High School is a new-build high school to replace the existing school, which was demolished just before BHC site start.

The project involved the construction of a 2/3 storey school with both dual and monopitched roofs and a waveform curved roof to the games hall.

BHC Ltd. supplied and erected hot rolled steelwork and cold formed purlins and side rails for the project. We also supplied and installed metal decking along with all necessary safety netting, and edge protection. In additionally, BHC Ltd. installed the steel stairs supplied by others.

This project was erected using our own in-house steel erection squads, metal decking squads, mobile cranes and mobile elevated working platforms.
