Crichton Hall Dumfries

Crichton Hall in Dumfries is a Category A Listed Building within the Crichton Conservation Area constructed in 1835 as a mental institute by the notable Edinburgh Architect, William Burn.

The original design incorporated a central staircase through all five floors of the building. Due to the oppressive and dark environment this was altered in the late 19th century to suit changing attitudes towards healthcare, providing a glazed cupola to the roof and a central void through the building with new staircases to the side.

The building was until recently used as the main headquarters of NHS Dumfries & Galloway and we have been responsible for successfully carrying out a wide range of architectural projects including building fabric restoration works, internal alterations, upgrade and refurbishment works, options appraisals and full building fabric condition surveys over a number of years.
