Refurbishment Case Study 37

Holyrood Park Lodge, Edinburgh

This Refurbishment Case Study describes the repair and upgrade works carried out at Holyrood Park Lodge in Edinburgh, currently a visitor centre for Holyrood Park. The works focussed on improving the thermal performance of the building with appropriate materials that preserved the character and appearance of the listed building and minimised disruption to the remaining original fabric.

The approach of carrying out the works from the start of the project was to retain finishes and fittings from significant earlier phases of the building, remove unsympathetic modern materials (such as woodchip and flush fire doors) and re-introduce features that had been damaged or destroyed during past works, as part of a sensitive upgrade and restoration scheme.

This template of refurbishment or selection of measures may be adopted to many other traditional buildings of this type, to bring them up to the standards required under legislation.
