Refurbishment at High Mills, by Tain for Denis and Sarah Macdonald
This was an interesting project involving an old mill listed by Historical Scotland. The Mill consists of two separate buildings and we proposed a new link with round roof and circular walls to connect them. The difficulty was to preserve the old building as much as possible and as well as that to detail the new link building since most of the details were original and neither us nor the contractor did something similar before. I took over this project after the sketch proposal stage and my job was to find answers for structure and other original features, to look at technical details, to prepare drawings for tenders and building warrant and to follow the project all the way to completion. Early 2011 the clients moved in and they were delighted with the building. In august 2012 this project received two award from IAA (including New Lifer for Old Buildings).
