Rosyth council offices make way for 23 flats

Sinclair Watt Architects have revived a 2017 bid to demolish the former Fife Council offices at Park Road, Rosyth, to build 23 flats.

The non-material variation on behalf of the applicant ED Consilium constitutes a net loss of one home to meet the requirements of Kingdom Housing Association.

Situated approximately three miles south of Dunfermli9ne town centre the build will require demolition of 656sq/m office building, vacated in a council drive to consolidate services.

The 0.6-acre site will instead be put toward residential use, helping to meet the growing demand for affordable accommodation in the area.

The housing association is currently delivering 189 new homes at a ‘village-style’ development in nearby Inverkeithing.

Wish UR would allow upload of pics to show a good example of white render used in scotland to justify its use!

Then the other 1.5m pics of bad white render....

White render has its place, less so in heavy duty urban environments but it can work well for bespoke (well maintained) homes.

The problem isn’t in using white render. The problem is in the lack of maintenance and upkeep. You see it all over the country. Things get built and then nothing gets kept in a decent condition. From Building exteriors, to pavement surfaces and everything in between.
Are maintenance budgets that small, or do people just not care as might be indicated by the amount of litter strewn everywhere.

The problem is not white render but badly detailed and poor quality white render. The majority of the render on this building looks well thought out. Not convinced by those white render parapets though!
