Conservation Projects

As a key sector for the practice, the conversion or restoration of historic buildings features through our portfolio.  From the first façade retention in Glasgow at the Clydesdale Bank in Buchanan Street (pictured) to the grant-aided conversion of Govan Police Station (pictured), we breathe new life into these heritage structures.  With an extensive track record in property repair for various Church denominations and local authorities, our qualified conservation team of Wendy Corrigan, Iain MacLaren and Rob Campbell bring years of experience to this sector.
