Vital repairs to secure Stirling Station future
May 7 2020
Network Rail has appointed IDP Architects to undertake fabric repairs to Stirling Station; including re-roofing the structure and removal of rotten timber.
The main building of the A-listed transport hub will be re-roofed in salvaged slate with other buildings receiving new Welsh slate. Masonry chimneys will also be rebuilt where appropriate and redundant roof lights removed and infilled.
In a statement, the architects wrote: "IDP Architects have been appointed by Network Rail as their agent for the submission of statutory approvals for the proposed high-level fabric repairs to the Grade A listed Stirling Station, based on survey work carried out from 2018-2019.
"The purpose of these repairs is to re-roof the building to make it wind and watertight, ensure drainage continues to function effectively, the removal of rot and damaged finishes and to carefully manage the future maintenance of the structure with the need for ad-hoc repairs removed."
Designed by James Miller between 1912-1915 the station has undergone significant alterations in more recent years including the addition of new platform canopies, reglazing and modifications to footbridges.
