East Norton Place, Edinburgh

Ian Riddell, Conservation Architecture Consultant

A Category C(S) listed building located on the eastern edge of Edinburgh's World Heritage Site, had fallen into severe disrepair as a consequence of defective masonry used to construct the front facade. Stonework was crumbling and scaffolding had been erected to prevent debris from falling onto pedestrians and into passing traffic. A painstaking survey and scientific analysis of the front elevation stonework allowed an understanding of the underlying problem and its cause. This provided justification not only for altering the facade by replacing the entire outer skin of stonework, but also for the use of considerable private and public funding.
