CLIENT: City of Newcastle upon Tyne
The project on this Grade II listed park incorporated work on Scheduled Monument & Grade II* listed Chapel of St Mary; Grade II listed Heaton Windmill, Scheduled Monument & Grade II listed Camera of Adam within .
Adelphi Director, Bruce Horsburgh, was a senior member of the team who provided civil & structural engineering services as part of a team led by Southern Green landscape architects. Along with monitoring of and restoration works to St Mary’s Chapel, the Camera of Adam and Heaton Windmill, Bruce was responsible for the design of a new weathering steel footbridge over the Ouse Burn, below Armstrong Bridge. The bridge was carefully detailed to ensure the longevity of the design and was craned into position in one piece.
Bruce also carried out investigations and designed renovation works to the existing Millfield House, a three storey traditional building; as well as a modern two storey extension which added new education spaces. The existing mill race was carefully preserved and can now be viewed along its length in a new retaining wall in the rear garden.
The Pets Corner animal enclosure was also rebuilt and all materials were specified by Bruce to be animal and environment friendly.
