Project Description

Rural Redevelopment

Cairns Farm plans to convert an existing lamb shed into a dedicated wedding venue, thereby creating a new source of income for the farm. They have opted for our full service, which means we are managing the whole project from design through to completion.

The wedding venue will feature a dedicated ceremony room with a fully catered function room that can accommodate up to 100 people, as well as overnight accommodation. The entrance to the wedding venue will be formed by a reclaimed grain silo, enhancing further its agricultural setting. The look and feel of the former agricultural shed will be transformed with the use of natural cladding materials, some of which will be seasoned timber sourced from their own felled trees, once again complementing its rural setting. At each stage we are taking into consideration how we can blend the natural landscape and materials into this building to create a unique and distinctive wedding venue.

One of the real challenges with this project is its rural location, which has required us to create solutions for servicing the building with water and power, often difficult in such an isolated location. We have a great deal of experience in this area, including negotiating with SEPA to agree and allow for the approval of new foul drainage arrangements on the site.

The result will be a stunning wedding venue that enables Cairns Farm to diversify, ensuring the success of their rural family business. It will also bring further business to the local economy and community.
