Troon Town Concert Hall

This group of buildings required significant investment to repair the historic fabric and protect it from the elements at its exposed coastal location, address significant health and safety concerns and improving the facilities for public use. South Ayrshire Council engaged our services to undertake the restoration works following the success of those we had previously managed for them at the Ayr Town Buildings.

The works at Troon included the indenting of sandstone and clay brick, re-pointing, repairs to roof coverings, followed by the internal upgrading of office accommodation, improving DDA access and toilet facilities together with improvements to the fire resistance of internal doors for fire compartmentation, as a first phase of works. Once completed a second phase was carried out to upgrade the existing electrical, mechanical and heating services, stage lighting and public address system, an overhaul to existing concert seating, renewal of catering facilities and redecoration including the concert hall, marriage suite and council chambers.

A new reception area, ticket office and seating area adjacent to the catering facility were created to allow the facilities to function as an modern entertainment and conference venue providing revenue for the local authority.

Since its completion in 2010 it has hosted a wide variety of events from the weekly Tea Dances, The Annual CAMARA Ayrshire Real Ale Festival, live acts such as The Proclaimers and Glasvegas, through to the Scottish Conservative Party Conference in 2012, which was addressed by the Prime Minister.
