Middleton Yard, Northumberland

CRA were initially appointed to inspect and report on the structural condition and environmental setting of a collection of buildings which formed Middleton Estate with a view to conversion. Following planning approval we designed the conversion of the sawmill segment of the estate into a home, holiday lets and commercial bakery. The original feature roof trusses and frames were repaired and retained with a new loadbearing timber frame introduced to enhance the stability of the structure.
