Currently working on proposals for the restoration of the weir across the River Tyne and related mill lade, pond and tail race for National Trust for Scotland. Including dialoguing with SEPA and Forth Salmon Fisheries Board.
Following the restoration of Aviemore Railway Station, our client commissioned E&Co in 2000 to design a railway for ! size steam trains in Gardens open to the public, including 3 km track, station, engine shed, ticket office, tunnel, timber viaduct and bridge. £2M
Communities Scotland funded Cloch Housing Association to commission 87 units of housing for rent and 2 special needs units to be design on sustainable principles, adjacent to a railway line. The site had a history of flooding, and the drainage infrastructure was at capacity so E&Co designed the first SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage System) to be adopted by a local authority in Scotland, which enabled the development and has proved to mitigate flooding in adjacent areas. £6.5M
E&Co were directly commissioned by Historic Scotland for the restoration and conversion of a substantial complex of C18th and C19th textile mills. Over 12 years this work encompassed sensitive conservation of the Arkwright Bell Mill, conversion of the East Mill and part of the Mid Mill into housing (for the Phoenix Trust), associated roads, and infrastructure works, restoration of the lades system and proposals for the reinstallation of one of the water wheels, and finally the development of the Arkwright Bell Mill into storage facilities and a visitor centre, opened in Spring 2008.
