Forestry Office Extension

Floor Area: 155m2 new extension
Complete:2005

The brief for the extension to the Forestry Commission’s Highland Conservancy office in Dingwall Business Park called for an extension to house an additional seven staff with improved communal facilities in conjunction with a wood burning boiler room and hopper. The new extension area wraps around the existing brick clad building. The Forestry Commission were keen to promote the use of biomass heating, and a wood chip boiler and hopper were installed. The restricted site meant that the boiler and hopper had to be constructed adjacent to the front entrance and therefore a dynamic design solution was adopted.
