Perth & Kinross
Brief and Response
Craighall Castle dates back centuries and throughout the years many generations of the previous owner’s family have added to it creating a very complicated building. The present owner recognised the importance of the specialist technical issues involved in Scottish slating practice, stonework repairs and leadwork as well as dealing with the local construction industry.
GLM undertook a detailed pre-acquisition building condition survey with budget costs identifying a multitude of issues with the roof coverings, rainwater goods, chimneys, stonework, drainage, windows and other building defects. Subsequently, GLM was appointed to design and specify a project to restore the external envelope of the building and to competitively tender and project manage the works.
We produced a meticulous quantified description of works for contractors to price, provided detailed drawings of the roof and annotated photographs of the works required to the stonework. Specialist design and project management skills were provided to deliver a complex and highly specialised project to rectify these building defects in terms of time cost and quality.
