Current Architectural Projects
The first stage of the Brough Lodge restoration is to make the building wind and water tight. The Brough Lodge Trust engaged the Architectural Heritage Team to carry out this work, which began with an exercise to salvage original fixtures and fittings from the ruined building to ensure nothing was lost. The salvaged items were labelled and stored, and will be reused in the future restorative element of this project.
Work done to date has included making the building safe by using salvaged timber to replace lintels and underpinning load bearing partitions. Stonework repairs have been carried out and the main roof has been completely reconstructed, with chimney stalks rebuilt. Work will continue on repairing the west roof.
Knab Memorial Garden
The Team have recently created a memorial garden in the new section of Lerwick Cemetery. This has included building a new stone wall using reclaimed stone, supplied from the Trust yard and Enviroglass kerb edges.
Fraser Park Wall
Members of the Team are currently working to repair and replace sections of the Fraser Park wall, in Scalloway.
