Major Concrete Repairs and Restoration of Factory Structures - Uniroyal Ltd., Dumfries, Scotland

Heathall, situated on the outskirts of Dumfries, was chosen for the construction of a factory by Arrol-Johnson Motor Car Company. This, now listed, building was completed in 1912 and was the first ferro-concrete factory erected in Britain. The main elevation is 170 m long, from which there are five projecting wings to the rear. The external construction is exposed reinforced concrete framing with brickwork dado walls and infill glazing. It has remained serviceable throughout its continuous life, and the original form has been maintained and enhanced through the current structural improvement works. C. Dinardo and J.R. Ballinghall
