Campbeltown Town Hall Wins Award
Campbeltown Town Hall Conservation and Regeneration Project has recently won a Judges Special Award at the Herald Property Awards 2016. This is a fantastic recognition for the sensitive restoration of this wonderful building at the heart of the local community.
A lottery grant was awarded to restore the historic town hall in Campbeltown, Argyll. Campbeltown Town Hall refurbishment is a community hub with offices to rent, conference and meeting facilities and a one-stop-shop for accessing services for local organisations and community activities.
This is a key element and focal point of the regeneration of Campbeltown town centre, with the Council eager to see the building operated by and for the benefit of the community, generating activity in the town centre and giving local people a community asset they can be proud of.
At the early stages of the project, Hulley and Kirkwood carried out renewable energy option studies with simple payback analysis. Annual energy consumption profiles were also created from which a mixed fuel strategy was developed in order to allow the Town Hall to obtain a new gas connection from the local town mains which has restricted capacity for new connections.
The building services have been designed to be as sympathetic as possible to the original features, including the refurbishment of existing ventilators and ornate light fittings. Simple to use, robust system choices feature throughout to avoid creating a complex maintenance burden on the Trust who will be responsible for the operation of the facility.
