Stromness THI

In 2004 I was asked by Orkney Islands Council to prepare the initial bid to Heritage Lottery Fund for the Stromness Townscape Heritage Initiative. This successful bid led to 3.8M of funding which is now being used to secure the future of the historic centre of Stromness.

I worked with Gray Marshall Associates of Edinburgh and Pentarq Quantity Surveyors to develop this information in the Stage 2 bid. This secured the final funding and I was part of the same team on the flagship project: the refurbishment of the Old Commercial Hotel.

I also acted as agent for a number of building owners to secure grants and carry out repairs to properties under the THI scheme.
