The Morgan Academy in Dundee was devastated by fire in 2001. Simpson & Brown was appointed by Dundee City Council to restore the original part of the building as part of a contract which included the construction of a new hall and classroom facilities, designed by Dundee City Architects.
Faithful restoration of the exterior, main entrance hall, stairs and chapel required painstaking investigation of the original drawings, archival material and thousands of items of masonry, ironwork, timber and other building elements which were salvaged from the debris after the fire. The work was completed in 2005 and was presented with the Dundee Civic Trust Award for Restoration.
