Cycling for Coram…

Its only three weeks to go before Conisbee’s Allan Dunsmore and the rest of the Legal and General Real Assets Cycle team set off to MIPIM. There’s still time to get involved – so please show your support by helping Allan reach his £3000 target for charity, Coram and give him something extra to keep those legs pumping on the steep climbs through France….

Located in the heart of a conservation area within the Cadogan Estate, this former mews house has been designed to both BREEAM and the Passivhaus EnerPHit Standards, while retaining its historic character. Breathable external insulation has been added to the façade, with windows and roof-lights replaced with triple-glazed timber units. The building has an MVHR unit with CO2 sensors and energy management controls.

Past, Present and Future

In 2016 the Heritage Lottery Fund and Creative Scotland awarded Glaswegian arts organisation NVA £4.2m to renovate St Peter’s Seminary in Cardross. The intention is to preserve the A Listed building and use it as an arts venue.

With the help of this investment, the 1960’s modernist ruin is now being transformed into a space for arts and performance, partially restoring the original site and allowing it to become a usable space. Conisbee acted as structural consultants in order to appraise the site and the conservation issues involved in maintaining it.
