Premier Technical Services Group Ltd (PTSG) is currently at work at Stirling Castle, one of Scotland’s largest and most important castles, where the team from PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd is carrying out high-level maintenance and repair works.

Stirling Castle dates from at least the early 12th century, with the surviving buildings mostly built between 1490 and 1600. The castle is open to the public year-round and in 2019 attracted over 600,000 visitors. The castle esplanade, or parade ground, has been used as an open-air concert venue for several noted acts including Bob Dylan, R.E.M, Wet Wet Wet and Ocean Colour Scene.

PTSG has held the term contract, or framework agreement, to provide high-level inspections and repairs to all of the national monuments managed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES) for the last five years.

The works in this contract require a high level of trust by the client in PTSG’s expertise and experience in working on such national treasures. Engineers from the different divisions of PTSG, and in particular PTSG Building Access Specialists Ltd, have worked on a great many historically valuable structures and approach each project with great care and respect for their worth to the nation.
