Provost Skene’s House

Located in the city centre and dating from 1545, Provost Skene’s House is the oldest surviving townhouse in Aberdeen.

This project required major refurbishment and conservation of a Category A listed building as part of Aberdeen City Council’s City Centre Masterplan to bring this historic building back into public use as a museum.

Services provided by Fairhurst included structural surveys, building fabric assessments, building monitoring, temporary works advice and support during construction.

With a highly constricted constrained site and an adjacent underground car park, we provided a high level of structural engineering input for temporary works arrangements, including the complex access scaffold, which wrapped around the fragile historic structure.
