Classical elegance restored

5 Aug 2015

A five-year project has restored the classical elegance of a historic Aberdeen warehouse.

A B-listed building, fronting St Clement Street received £20,000 grant assistance from Aberdeen City Heritage Trust towards traditional joinery reinstatement. The massive granite structure is one of Aberdeen's most significant surviving buildings from the time of architect  John Smith's redesign of the harbour in the early 1800s.

Local business Mo & Co also commissioned major roofing work, bringing the building back into a fully repaired state.

Ventrolla, operated locally by Bancon Specialist Works, supplied and installed a mixture of flat and curved high-performance sash and case windows plus arcaded ground floor windows.

Trust Project Officer Douglas Campbell said:

The Trust is delighted to have supported improvement work at this important listed building. Over several years its architectural splendour and fine classical proportions have been revealed.

The Trust is supported by Aberdeen City Council and Historic Scotland.
