Arc-Tech Scotland Limited is one of our Sheds biggest sponsors. When the Arc-Tech directors heard about a new local Men's Shed they visited us and asked if there was anything they could do to help, we discussed with them the problems we faced. Prior to obtaining permission from Glasgow City Council to repurpose the old Parks department depot as a community led project the site had been earmarked for demolition and the utilities had already been cut-off.
Following a survey of the site they agreed to re-connect all the buildings to the mains electric. 3 days later their workforce were onsite and worked all weekend in extreme weather conditions, thereafter relevant safety checks were carried out and the whole site was live again. Amazingly, Arc-Tech did all this work free of charge! We had previously received a quote which was in excess of £10,000.
John Gallacher, Managing Director of Arc-Tech said; "It is important to give back to community and charity organisations. The Springburn Park Men's Shed is a fantastic initiative and we were more that happy to provide our support."
