The Burrell Company thrives on challenging and prestigious projects and CRGP has been privileged to provide quanitity surveying expertise to some of these developments. In recent years we have been involved with Caledon House where 14 two-bedroom apartments were built in a quiet area of Liberton in the south of Edinburgh.
Of a quite different nature was the challenge we had at Smyllum House in Lanark. This building of 18th century origin had sustained various changes over the years but it had fallen into a state of decay. The plan was to restore and convert the original house into apartments and add a courtyard to the rear of the property.
Today, we are again working with the Burrell Company as quantity surveyors on an exciting project that will see the transformation of the closed-down 120-year-old Mount Zion Church in Quarriers Village near Bridge of Weir into residential apartments. The building was purchased recently by Premier Burrell from Quarriers and it is envisaged that works will commence on site in May 2007. Features such as its stained-glass windows and clock tower will be preserved when the 12 luxury apartments are created whilst the existing organ is being gifted to a specialist organisation who will dismantle and install the organ in an alternative Church. And Quarriers will not be without a place of worship as they will use part of the proceeds of the sale of Mount Zion to build another place of worship as well as community facilities.
