Date of Study
March ‘05



The Camping and Caravanning Club contacted Locate Architects to help with ensuring that the refurbishment of their amenity block at the campsite at Glencoe be as sustainable as possible, in line with the ethos of the adjacent Visitor Facilities.
Commissioned to prepare a small report only, Locate made a series of recommendations after a study of the proposed drawings and discussions with the project Engineers.

The main recommendations related to the ongoing energy and maintenance costs of the block and so proposals were put forward regarding the boiler and related hot water services, water supply arrangements and lighting in particular. A number of these were taken on significantly improving the long term environmental performance, and reducing the maintenance burden and cost-in-use of the block for the Client.
