This project was developed by The Prince’s Foundation for the Built Environment in association with Scotia Homes. It formed a key part of the Prince’s Foundation’s Residential Summer School programme which involved eleven Prince of Wale’s Building Craft’s Apprentices participating in a diverse range of activities in traditional building crafts, and working alongside six Prince of Wale’s Graduate Fellows over the course of 3 weeks.
The third week of the Summer School took place in Ellon where the apprentices were tasked with designing and planning a community pavilion at Gordon Park. The students developed individual and group design models which were then voted on by the public. The successful design was then constructed by the apprentices between September and October 2009.
Scope of Work
LTM were asked to assist in the training, design and construction of the new Pavilion, working in collaboration with the Prince’s Foundation and associated partners. Andy Bradley of LTM delivered a series of lectures on traditional building methods and materials, to help establish what was feasible and appropriate for the site context. Andy also mentored the construction of the pavilion, guiding and facilitating the building of the pavilion by the apprentices.
In addition, LTM Materials provided many lime materials free of charge and organised tools and equipment throughout the construction period.
LTM have since become an Enrolled Practice of the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment.
