PROJECT REPORT: HERITAGE & HISTORIC BUILDINGS

Unique location for Changing Places


A unique project is bringing “excellence to all”– including disabled people. Kelvin Hall has re-opened following a £35 million revamp. The new venue now houses 1.5 million pieces from Glasgow’s civic collection, Glasgow University’s Hunterian


Museum, the National Library of Scotland’s Moving Image Archive. And it also includes a state-of-the-art wheelchair-accessible, assisted toilet facility, supplied and installed by Clos-o-Mat. The toilet means that anyone for whom a conventional wheelchair-accessible toilet isn’t suitable can now enjoy the benefits of Kelvin Hall.

Marple Bridge-based Rhodes & Partners recently completed a structural assessment of the bell tower of St Mary’s church in Greater Manchester which had been experiencing structural movement. Over recent years some masonry had become displaced and it was leaning to one side. The survey was made more challenging by the fact that, from ground level, it was not clear whether or not the spire masonry was supported by iron cramps. “We


were delighted with the work which Rhodes & Partners carried out on our bell-tower,” concludes Reverend Bruce Perrin of St Mary’s.

Heradesign sheds new light on heritage


The Engine Shed is Scotland’s brand new national building conservation centre. The project involved the complete restoration of a historic engine shed with new build extensions to either side. Heradesign Superfine from Knauf AMF was installed in both new buildings to help meet the acoustic challenges and satisfy environmental criteria. Heradesign, with


its organic wood-wool woven surface, offers an unprocessed aesthetic that is a popular trend in interior design towards the use of eco-friendly, traditional construction materials. The natural colour of Heradesign works in harmony with the sheds’ architecture.

www.architectsdatafile.co.uk Keeping the castle cosy with Howe Green Access Covers


Howe Green’s Light Duty 5000 Series Floor Access Covers are playing their part in keeping a Victorian castle warm and cosy by providing safe and easy access to central heating valves. Lews Castle was built between 1844 and 1851 and has an interesting past. Following a 25 year closure the Castle underwent a £19 million refurbishment and reopened last year. The Category A listed building is now a museum and cultural centre owned by the local council. The Light Duty 5000 Series Aluminium Floor Access Covers were specified by GRAHAM Construction to provide access to the underfloor services, located in the corridors on the first floor of the Castle. Sixteen covers were supplied, in various standard sizes. The covers were specified with the option of a brass show edge and were infilled with carpet or ceramic tiles, depending on their location. The brass show edge with matching lifting points, which are anchored to the inner frame, give an even higher level of aesthetic appeal than the standard aluminium show edge. The brass finish fits perfectly with the historic surroundings of the Castle and the seamless fit with the floor finish reduces the risk of slips and trips.
