Patton Construction has been featured in a news article on BBC Online thanks to their use of robots during a major development in Edinburgh – Scottish PR

The Northern-Ireland based construction company are in the process of creating Primark’s flagship store on the capital’s famous shopping strip, Princes Street.

As part of the deconstruction of the former Marks & Spencer store, four robots have been brought in to break down walls and floors.

The robots are a key feature to ensure the team’s safety and minimise danger whilst within the complicated structure of the building.

Site manager Barry Henderson is also quoted in the article, explaining the importance of the machines and the complex nature of the deconstruction.

Patton Construction was commissioned to construct Primark’s flagship store following their success with the fit out of five Primark stores across Scotland.

The coverage can be seen on the BBC News website and was the result of a PR in Scotland campaign carried out for Patton Construction by Edinburgh PR agency the Holyrood PR.

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.

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 PR.

The Courier and Advertiser which features the latest news and features from across Scotland, has featured a story on the wireless controlled robots which have been hailed as the ‘unsung heroes’ of the newest Primark site in Edinburgh.

Site manager Barrie Henderson quotes in the article: “It’s always important to minimise danger and ensure that everyone on site is as safe as possible, so these machines are perfect for this.

“The robots have already deconstructed two thirds of the building and we are on course to begin the next phase of the project in the new year.

“I think it will come as a surprise to many shoppers in Edinburgh to find out that there is a team of robots behind the scenes busy bringing down the building.”

There are four machines in total and they are operated by demolition firm SafeDerm.

The article was secured as part of a sustained PR campaign carried out by the Holyrood PR.
