The project was procured through the Procurement Hub – Major Projects framework, speeding up delivery and building in value-for-money and social value guarantees.

The Tay Road Bridge Joint Board needed to refurbish, upgrade and modernise the facility, including:

KEY FACTS

Keeping vital infrastructure running on a live construction site

The Tay Road Bridge Control Tower employs 22 people who work in shifts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Robertson is managing the refurbishment project within this live environment, ensuring the facility continues to run effectively. We have kept working areas separate from live areas, resulting in no disruption to day-to-day operations for staff.

Providing social value in uncertain economic times

Working with Dundee Health & Social Care Partnership, Robertson provided a 12-week work placement in our design team for someone who had been made redundant.

Reducing waste through an efficient construction programme

Working collaboratively with the customer’s Design and Operational teams, we were able to refine the design and refurbishment programme by repurposing an internal mess room to house the temporary control room during refurbishment works, negating the need for a temporary external portacabin. This proactive recommendation has reduced waste and saved money for the customer.
