The Press and Journal – Scotland’s widely read daily paper covering the length and breadth of Scotland – printed an article featuring Patton Construction.
Patton’s involvement in the construction of Primark’s flagship store in Edinburgh has made the headlines again – this time for their use of robots on site.
The demolition robots have been used to knock down walls, break up floors and venture into narrow and potenitally dangerous areas of the former Marks & Spencer building on Princes Street.
Site manager Barrie Henderson is included in the piece, explaining the work the robots are carrying out.
The Edinburgh Primark store is the sixth to be completed by Patton construction in Scotland and other projects include Debenhams, Tesco and Peacocks.
The article can be viewed on the Press & Journal website and was secured as part of a sustained PR campaign carried out by the Holyrood Partnership.
