Goods Corner

Goods Corner, Edinburgh

Located in a prominent area of Edinburgh the scheme consisted of 3 blocks of student accommodation. Frameclad supplied all of the frames and floor cassettes to form the three-storey structure. The developer was keen to use some of the previous buildings stonework which were incorporated in the external cladding of the cottage building.

A very complicated build with stunning and satisfying results – many types of SFS / frames and techniques were utilised to produce the finished project.

Logistics were difficult given the location of the project , however, by consultation and agreement the project was delivered smoothly and on time to the satisfaction of all involved.
