The Considere reinforced concrete system was employed. In 1920 it was decided to demolish the old mansion-house which had served as offices for forty-five years and as a canteen and Welfare centre for five. The building which had been found to be too small, was hampering work in the yard. The present administrative block, with its frontage to Homefauld Road, had been occupied since July, 1915. This is a building of three storeys which contains a few links with the old house. Some of the solid mahogany panelled doors and a fire-place from it are in position in the new. The portico of the mansion-house was presented to the Elder Park, Govan, where it was re-erected.
