One of the most interesting and challenging aspects of renovating an older building is the likelihood of discovering unknown structural issues hidden behind from view. Craig Gowan was no exception. In the basement we uncovered defective and missing structural supports. Extensive temporary shoring and propping's were designed underpinning the building until permanent structural steel work was installed.
The windows and entrance doors on both the main buildings are with a few exceptions completely new windows. They are however traditional sash and case windows locally manufactured by Sturrocks Joinery. Although modern in functionality and performance the manufacture hold the vernacular of historic windows, with narrow glazing sightlines, narrow astigals and ultra thin double glazing.
