Special Skills

Conservation and Restoration

Wendy Corrigan, Iain MacLaren and Rob Campbell are RIAS Accredited Practitioners in Conservation Architecture.

The Practice has a considerable track record of refurbishing and restoring Listed buildings and those within Conservation Areas. In some cases it has also been involved in conservation of Listed buildings designed by the practice soon after it was founded in 1912, with some Listings as recently as the 1960`s.

For details of our projects refer to the ‘Conservation’ section of ‘What we do’. These include common repairs to multiple ownership properties under grant aid from Historic Scotland or District Council, as well as Grade A Listed building renovation, conversion to new use, and eradication of timber rot and asbestos.

Appropriate additions of new fabric, provision for new uses, conservation of existing features, and sensitive installation of mood and flood lighting are included in many of our projects.

The survey and repair of Social Housing for Co-operatives and Housing Associations has been Rob Campbell`s expertise for many years, and more detail is included under our ‘Residential’ section.
