New Build, Isle of Barra

Co-Operative Group originally appointed Kerr Baxter Associates to assist in the delivery of their commitment to improve stores and facilities in remote communities.

The existing store in Castlebay, Barra was dilapidated, restrictive in size and long unable to deliver the level of service the client and community demanded. Kerr Baxter Associates developed the project from inception on a vacant site purchased from Comhairle Nan Eilean Siar.

Working with Cner on site remediation issues, we prepared and modified concept designs and co-ordinated the design team including Structural, Civil and M&E inputs.

Kerr Baxter Associates assisted with due diligence issues on transfer of the vacant site, including warranty provision and contractor selection. Full architectural, CDM and project management services were utilised in-house to deliver the new building. KBA were further engaged to design and co-ordinate a proposed extension to the existing store in 2018, this almost doubled the size of the store, providing a much-required increased offer to the community.
