The Caledonia Works

Smith Design Associates

Refurbishment of derelict locomotive and engineering works and conversion mainly to residential use, partly commercial and including a heritage centre. The works involved selective demolition, as well as the re-erection of a historic gantry crane. There were facade retentions and full new build sections to create a courtyard development for private sale. The range of buildings included stone and brick structures in which luxury flats and duplex housing were formed. A paved court yard with landscaping conceals a signifiacnt SUDs provision. Iron rails traverse the public street connecting the works to the railway network - these are retained in-situ.
