Edinburgh native Murray joined GLM less than a year ago, but has quickly become indispensable to our building surveying and project management teams. With a Building Surveying degree from Edinburgh Napier and a Higher National Diploma from Glasgow Metropolitan College in architectural conservation, Murray is a perfect fit for GLM’s niche conservation and restoration work. From refurbishments of listed castles to residential and commercial building surveys, we’re keeping him very busy. Find out what he’s up to at the moment…
The restoration of this magnificent A-Listed castle is well underway and works commence on the next phase which will be mostly internal. Since Autumn 2014 GLM, working with specialist roofing and masonry contractors A. Thorburn Ltd, have been meticulously refurbishing the external fabric of this historically significant Scottish building and now the building is emerging reborn as the last bits of scaffolding are dismantled and GLM prepares to take on the role of Construction Managers in Phase II.
When it comes to creating better buildings one problem we face is that we have a massive legacy of existing buildings many of which were built in an era of cheap energy. What is to be done about them?
