We Hae Meat Factory Extension Girvan

We were contracted by We Hae Meat to design the extension to their existing factory for which we had obtained planning permission and building warrant approval in 2005.

The proposal was to increase the size of the factory by 3 to allow for the 24hour operation to be able to meet the growing business demand. We prepared initial sketches from which finalised designs were agreed upon.

There were lengthy discussions with South Ayrshire Building Control to finalise the fire strategy and design required to meet stringent fire escape regulations.

The factory was constructed by 3B and has now been completed.

Middlemuir Pub

Redundant building conversion to form caravan public bar.

We were approached by the client to assess the suitability of an existing building previously used as a toilet block, wash facilities and a games room at a local caravan park which had become surplus to requirements.

The brief was to design an open bar area with modern facilities and outside seating area whilst maintaining the existing building fabric. Initial design sketches were drawn up before the final design was approved by the client. Planning approval and building warrant approvals were obtained and the works were carried out by a client appointed contractor.


Redundant building conversion and extension to form dwelling house.

We were approached by the client to design a modern 21st century dwelling that made use of the existing derelict building and fitted within the rural architecture.

This was a tricky site being long and narrow bounded by roads to the North and South. The site topography also added to the challenges. This is one of the sketch designs that utilised the sloping site with a sunken courtyard and round porch clad with natural cedar lining.

These sketches formed the basis of the finalised approved plans and the client is now nearing completion of the build.
