About the project
Volunteer Development Scotland and their sister company CRBS required a new office facility. The sensitive nature of CRBS's work, the volunteer arm of Disclosure Scotland, required careful consideration as to how to integrate the two offices whilst maintaining security. The office development is housed in a former Victorian store and albeit not listed, the Local Authority regarded the building to be of local significance and insisted on careful restoration / part conservation of the building. This presented various issues with meeting Technical Standards legislation but extensive research allowed the building to be fully compliant on a very tight budget.
