Building projects

Working on heritage and listed buildings comes naturally for us, but our skills are not all about restoring pieces of history. We’re just as at home working on brand new builds, as you can see from our portfolio.

Torosay Castle and Gardens

Following on from our successful forays to John O’Groats and Wick, B & D Roofing are proud to be appointed as principal contractors for the external refurbishment of the famous Torosay Castle on the Island of Mull.

The “Castle” is in fact a Baronial Mansion designed by the renowned Scottish architect David Bryce and dating 
back to 1885.

The works comprise the stripping of all existing slates and lead weathering’s form the high level pitched roofs; 
stone restoration and conservation works and sympathetic overhaul and draught proofing of the sash and case windows.

There is also an element of structural stabilisation works required primarily to the south elevation turrets and dormer pediments.

Taking account of the local climate it was decided that the project would be best served by the provision of a temporary roof structure; this will provide protection to the internal fabric of the building and permit work to proceed in most weather conditions.
