Basic Biographical Details

Name: McLuckie & Walker
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: c. 1885
Ended: 1911
Bio Notes: Andrew McLuckie was born in Lennoxtown, Stirlingshire in 1843. He moved to Stirling in 1864 and although details of his training are lacking, he qualified as a civil engineer. He may have served his articles in the office of Francis Mackison, who was both civil engineer and architect, for he appears to have joined the office as a young man and remained there for about twenty years as assistant. During this period he secured the part-time post of resident engineer to the Stirling Water Commission. In this capacity he was frequently called upon to give evidence at the Sheriff Court in Stirling. After Mackison died in 1884, he formed a partnership with the architect Ronald Walker.

Ronald Walker was born at West Loch Tarbert, Argyll in 1859. He served his articles in the office of an as yet unidentified Glasgow architect and then secured a position in Stirling with William Simpson. After the partnership with Andrew McLuckie was formed, they opened an office at 48 Barnton Street where they remained for number of years but between 1894 and 1903 moved to 15 Dumbarton Road.

Both partners died in 1911.
