Building magazine ‘Sketch of the week’ by Smith and Wallwork.

Our work on restoring an 1873 locomotive shed was communicated via a series of hand sketches, looking at ideas for restoring and part re-building the existing roof. We came up with options for reciprocal rafters, tied arch trusses and a hybrid CLT and steel scheme. Each option was then modelled in SketchUp with the preferred option detailed and rendered in 3d CAD and incorporated in the listed building planning application.

The project received planning permission last month.
