Reclaimed original slates from the roof of the Burgh Halls, which were taken off and tested, cleaned and re-shaped, have now started to be replaced on the main elevation to Maryhill Road, and shortly, to the front of the building.

In Gairbraid Avenue, on the new sections of roof above the former police and fire station facades, new slates have been applied, of a similar type and colour to the originals.

Interestingly, the original slates weren't made of Scottish slate - they are Westmoreland slate, from a quarry in England, which is where the new slates have been sourced from.

Elsewhere on the building, new granite cladding is being added on the new part of the building facing Maryhill Road.
