Dear BIG members, friends, partners and affiliated groups,
A lot has been happening since our last blogpost. The committee have been busied with getting things together and in motion for our feasibility study. So to let you know where we are at:
After looking at various consultants (individual and organisations), we interviewed three and then finally appointed Sandra Macaskill (of Caskieco) to carry out our Options Appraisal with us. We have also appointed Malcolm Fraser Architects, Elliot & Company and David Adams Group to simultaneously carry out more structural and architectural feasibility work on the building itself.
Work has begun by all parties and all important meetings, details and legal issues have been considered. We are pleased with progress so far on this work and things are moving forward positively.
We are also very excited about working with two different students from the University of Edinburgh.
Then, from September to December we will be joined by Darla Eno, a 4th year architectural history development.
The committee have also been on a study visit to Lambhill Stables in Glagsow to look at
a similar project to ours which gave us some great ideas and inspiration for the farmhouse renovation.
