The Engine Shed is Scotland’s building conservation centre. Created and managed by Historic Environment Scotland (HES), it promotes engagement with traditional buildings and educates people about the skills and materials required to build, conserve and maintain them. The beautifully restored, redundant MOD railway building (engine shed) was refurbished in 2019 with 2 new wings added and Ripple was asked to design, manufacture and install their retail area; a unique project with a contemporary reflection of the industrial era complimenting the outstanding conservation efforts of the existing building. Aside from the manufacturing and installation of this project, a great deal of emphasis was put on the design for the manufacturing process. Our Technical Design team took the approved concepts from the architects and agencies involved and worked hard to realise exactly how the products could be manufactured, considering materials such as Cold Rolled Blackened Steel (CR4) with lacquered finish to offer an industrial look and feel. These expertly finalised designs then headed into our in-house manufacturing facility where the design team continued their involvement to oversee the detailed production and on-site installation.
