A data upgrade project to record war memorials.

Standing Building Recording (1 November 2017 - 3 November 2017)

NS 564 666 As part of a wider redevelopment scheme at the former Western Infirmary a detailed measured survey was made, 1–3 November 2017, of a linking corridor between the Elder Memorial Chapel and the former Western Infirmary, which is scheduled for demolition. The work aimed to provide survey drawings which would facilitate the rebuilding of

the corridor at a later date. The survey produced a series of internal and external elevation drawings to which numbers were added identifying each element of the structure.
