After sitting unused for over a decade, Dundee’s Custom House, an icon within the city’s waterfront, is getting ready for contractors to be on site. The start of enabling works will undertake roof and window replacement to ensure the building has a watertight envelope again.

A project of this pedigree required intense Planning and Building Warrant liaison to ensure the work reflects the character of the building and ensure the longevity of its future while respecting its important historical past.

Our team, jmarchitects, Alicydon Ltd, Linear Group Ltd, Axiom, Will Rudd (WRD), The Keenan Consultancy, TJ Ross, and New Acoustics have been diligently working to create a design strategy and plan that will allow the building to shine again, and we cannot wait to see Custom House come back to life.
