Works Progressing at Hospitalfield Arts in Arbroath
Works are progressing at CHAP’s project at Hospitalfield Arts in Arbroath.
Pictured above is the existing wall behind which the new kitchenette and toilets will be formed. The wall has been propped and secured using CHAP Quarries . . .
The project involved the complete strip-out, major internal structural alterations and reconstruction of existing student accommodation, to create a development of luxury town-houses and flats.
All of the existing internal building fabric was removed and new steel beams inserted throughout the two buildings to cater for the new design loads. This allowed for the creation of large openings throughout the structure for stairwells and lift-shafts. The external envelope of each building was also completely renovated, with the pointing repaired, all windows replaced and the granite power-washed following a complete re-roofing of each building.
