Saltcoats Town Hall restoration

Saltcoats Town Hall restoration
The project brief called for extensive restoration of the grade ‘B’ - listed Saltcoats Town Hall, in order to return the building to its former glory and re-establish it as the civic and heritage focal point of Saltcoats and the ‘Three Towns’ (Ardrossan, Saltcoats & Stevenston).

The project involved reconfiguration of the ground and first floors including the installation of new shop fronts in order to provide a unified elevation; provision of a new reception and public entrance area accessed directly from Countess Street; a new extension has been constructed to the rear of the property all in-keeping with the style of the existing building.

Ground floor accommodation consists of general offices, interview rooms, and staff break out space for Housing & Social Work teams with bespoke meeting pods and archive stores. The main hall has been split in height to introduce a new mezzanine floor.

On the first floor the main hall and ceremony room have been completely restored providing two large multi-function spaces. Works here included detailed restoration of the impressive plaster ceiling and cornicing to return it to its original proportions.
