Site Visit: Union Street, Aberdeen

As part of the ongoing regeneration of Union Street, Aberdeen’s main thoroughfare, I was asked earlier this month to provide a condition report on a suite of stairwell windows. One of the perks of my job is definitely getting to explore buildings like this!

The Union Street Conservation Area Regeneration Scheme (CARS) is a five year initiative aimed at the regeneration of Aberdeen's main thoroughfare. This conservation led programme is set up to tackle the problems of run down historic buildings and streetscape where longstanding economic and structural decline has undermined the character of this historic and architecturally rich street.
