Loanstone, Midlothian

Constructed high above Penicuik, this new home has views across to the Pentland hills which have been captured by the feature glass elevation serving the main living space. The house is of timber frame construction with an additional detached timber portal framed workspace. CRA`s scope of appointment included the following services: Site investigation, Environmental Desktop Study, Structural Design, SUDS design and the diversion of a water main which dissected the site.

Libberton, South Lanarkshire

This project involved the part conversion of an existing steading together with new build properties providing a 16 unit development, 11 of which were new build. CRA provided both Structural & Civil Engineering services including the design and detail of a rising main to facilitate foul water discharge into the nearby water course.

Roseview, Midlothian

The redevelopment of Roseview Farm consisted of seven new build dwelling within a court yard setting including a new stable block. CRA were responsible for the design of each house type, ground works, retaining walls and the SUDS system design including discharge.

House Number 7

The multi award winning house number 7 is located on the Isle of Tiree, Inner Hebrides. The original “B” listed black house was reconstructed and extended to form a three bedroom family home. The project included a curved glue laminated timber roof structure over the main living space and insulated concrete formwork (ICT) substructure walls housing the master bedroom within Tiree`s first basement.

Middleton Yard, Northumberland

CRA were initially appointed to inspect and report on the structural condition and environmental setting of a collection of buildings which formed Middleton Estate with a view to conversion. Following planning approval we designed the conversion of the sawmill segment of the estate into a home, holiday lets and commercial bakery. The original feature roof trusses and frames were repaired and retained with a new loadbearing timber frame introduced to enhance the stability of the structure.

Juniper Water, Edinburgh

A former brick built industrial unit located in Juniper Green on the banks of the Water of Leith, this development converted the original structure into five, three storey town houses including feature roof terraces with views over the river. A new structural frame was inserted within the original building to support new Posi-Joist flooring with the steel truss roof structure retained and adapted to support the roof terraces and large glazed roof lights.

Little Spott Steading, Dunbar

The site which is elevated with views across the East Lothian coast line involved the reconstruction of a “B” listed farm steading into 14 residential units of varying sizes. Due to the dilapidated condition a proportion of the steading had to be reconstructed as new which meant reforming sloping ridges and wall heads to ensure the original character was retained. As a result of the shape and dimension irregularities the timber frame and roofs all had to be designed so that they could be constructed on site without any prefabrication.
