CPD: Heritage Impact Assessments with Georgina Allison

Tuesday 13th July 2021 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

With focus shifting towards conservation and renovation of historic buildings, it is important to understand the building (both its history and its construction) before we make decisions on future works. A crucial element of this process is known as a heritage impact assessment, which looks at the significance of the historic asset and makes sure you take this into account when you are developing and designing proposals for change.

Join us for this CPD lecture delivered by conservation accredited architect Georgina Allison, covering the process, expertise and importance involved in a Heritage impact assessment, along with some case studies, to gain knowledge pertinent to all architects and conservation professionals undertaking work on historic buildings.

Georgina Allison has worked exclusively with historic buildings for almost three decades, since graduating from the Mackintosh School of Architecture in Glasgow.  Despite being a proud member of the tweedie brigade, she also cares passionately about contemporary architecture, often working with other architects to achieve their vision on sensitive sites and with historic buildings, trying to find design solutions that compromise neither.  She also lectures on conservation technology and design intervention at the University of Edinburgh.

This CPD is being delivered as part of GCHT’s “THE GREENEST BUILDING HAS ALREADY BEEN BUILT” programme, in line with COP26 2021.

All GCHT CPD sessions are recognised by the IHBC, and attendees can obtain a CPD certificate upon completion.

Monday 28th June 2021 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

Conservation is a growing area of work within architecture. As well as creativity and design skills, it requires specialist education and training in conservation to be able to develop in practice the competences required. Architecture is by nature an interdisciplinary field and a specialisation in conservation requires further multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, as well as a collaborative and critical approach. The most difficult aspects in a conservation project are not the resolution of technical problems, but the capacity to make good judgements about the buildings and their settings and to develop a specific intervention criteria that allows to take good project decisions, based on an appropriate understanding of the philosophy of conservation and a scientific analysis of the evidence.

Join us for this CPD with Dr Cristina Gonzalez-Longo to explore the challenges of conserving built heritage, the philosophy of conservation and a look at some case studies of Dr Gonzalez-Longo’s work, highlighting the importance of history, design ideas, innovation, scientific approach and care.

Dr Cristina González-Longo is the founder and Director of the MSc in Architectural Design for the Conservation of Built Heritage at the Department of Architecture of the University of Strathclyde and the President of ICOMOS International Scientific Committee in Education and Training (CIF). She is also a Chartered Architect and RIBA Specialist Conservation Architect (SCA) with over twenty years’ experience both in the UK and Spain.

GCHT grantees Lindsay and Simone opened their store “The Bridal Courtyard” in 2021. With the help of GCHT Traditional Skills funding, they employed traditional sign writers Scott and Ross Hastie to create beautiful, hand painted signage on their shop window. Lindsay and Simone interviewed Scott and Ross to find out more about their craft! Check out the video below to see Ross in action and learn more about his craft and how his journey into his fascinating career.

Lindsay and Simone’s vision: “Our aim at the Bridal Courtyard was to remove the purple vinyl machine made logo on our main window and bring our signage back to a formal Victorian glory, in keeping with the Italiante style Tannery Building in which we are housed. Therefore, we employed Ross to create Traditional gold leaf signage.”

Tuesday 25th May 2021 | 11.30am-12.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

Glasgow currently has around 130 historic buildings listed on the Buildings at Risk Register, half of which have been there for over a decade. Pre 1945 buildings make up more than 40% of Glasgow’s housing stock, and within this, 64% have disrepair to critical elements and 84% have some kind of disrepair. With Glasgow hosting the 2021 COP26 conference, and the city focussing in on Climate Change and Sustainability, GCHT are passionate about highlighting the Buildings at Risk Register and what we can do to tackle this crisis.

In this CPD lecture, Niall Murphy will delve into why Glasgow has so many buildings on the Register, and will explore what GCHT has been doing to address the problem including: case studies of meanwhile uses; how we have tried to get buildings off the Register and back into use; or tried to set them on the path to a sustainable future.

Taylor Cross-Whiter will then outline GCHT’s significant resources relating to this issue, including the Snapshot initiative (https://www.glasgowheritage.org.uk/glasgow-historic-environment-snapshot-2018/) and the Development Grants programme, which supports projects in their early stages and help get historic buildings back into viable use with the vital repairs they need.

Niall Murphy is Deputy Director of GCHT and the Chair of the Govanhill Baths Building Preservation Trust, which is working toward the removal of Govanhill Baths from the Buildings at Risk Register and its sustainable re-use as a health and wellbeing centre.

Taylor Cross-Whiter is the Development Officer at GCHT and supports grantees to fund feasibility studies and projects to find viable new uses for Glasgow’s traditional buildings. Taylor has a degree in Architectural Conservation and recently delivered GCHT’s Conservation Accreditation Conference.

Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements – Download Link

Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements

Traditional and historical buildings are an integral part of the environment in which we live and work, and are widely valued for their character, form and local distinctiveness. However, they are often considered expensive to run and difficult to maintain. This need not be the case. With regular maintenance and repair, the right skills and materials we can all play a role in ensuring that these older buildings continue to contribute to the fabric and amenity of Scotland’s built environment.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust in collaboration with UnderOneRoof invite you to become a “tenement detective” using our Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements guide, which covers maintenance repairs and shared responsibilities for the tenement owners of Glasgow. The guide features detailed information on the different features of a traditional tenement, and checklists to complete your own maintenance inspections.

Wednesday 2nd December 2020 – 12:30-1:30pm BST | via Zoom

Addressing energy efficiency is one of the most pressing issues for older, traditionally-constructed buildings. Retrofitting can bring new life to old buildings whatever their age, use or type. Low energy refurbishments designed to minimise fuel bills will enhance traditional buildings for improved function and less running costs whilst retaining original features and charm.

Join us for this CPD, delivered by Scott Abercrombie and Barbara Lantschner from John Gilbert Architects, to look in detail at their retrofitting methodology in the context of their ongoing project to improve the energy efficiency of the Canongate Housing Development, alongside undertaking vital conservation work. The Canongate Housing Development is a Cat B listed post-war complex, designed by Sir Basil Spence and completed in 1969.

This project presents a great opportunity to upgrade these iconic flats to meet modern environmental standards. Doing so will reduce the high cost of heating apartments, and ensure the building is wind and watertight. This CPD will cover John Gilbert Architects’ approach and give an insight into the progress of this important project.

This event is presented as part of our “GCHT Conservation and Climate Change” series.

Scott Abercrombie is an associate director of John Gilbert Architects, his professional work primarily focuses on the adaptive reuse of traditional buildings, and the conservation and retrofit of tenements.

Barbara Lantschner is an experienced Building Performance Specialist leading the Hab-Lab Building Performance Evaluation service and Deep Retrofit projects at JGA, focusing on Post Occupancy Evaluation, energy efficiency assessment, energy modelling, performance gap assessment, renewable energy assessment, Indoor Air Quality, ventilation, building-users engagement programmes.

Wednesday 11th November 2020 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

The ‘Sustainable Renovation Guide’, created by Chris Morgan in association with SEDA and The Pebble Trust, describes ten ways in which those involved in the retrofit and renovation of Scotland’s homes can improve upon current practice, achieving better energy performance while simultaneously gaining wider sustainability benefits.

GCHT is delighted to collaborate with Chris to present this CPD, based upon the ‘Sustainable Renovation Guide,’ which will be of interest to anyone working with existing buildings, from those working in government, housing associations and councils, as well as architects, surveyors, builders and those wanting to refurbish their own homes. This CPD will include detailed information and drawings of exactly how parts of a building can be upgraded along with a commentary on practical issues to look out for, and why our guidance differs from most conventional wisdom on the subject.

We will take a look at a more balanced approach that values energy efficiency equally with the health of occupants and the long-term durability of buildings, and that considers the reality of buildings as built, rather than the theoretical models which tend to inform policy and practice. We look at how we can better engage with people, and learn from established conservation practice to help with the practicalities of working with existing buildings.

This event is presented as part of our “GCHT Conservation and Climate Change” series.

Chris Morgan is an architect and a Director at John Gilbert Architects with 30 years’ experience in ecological design and sustainable development. He has maintained a range of experience from masterplanning and energy infrastructure, through to award-winning and innovative architecture, research and teaching.

The philosophy of the circular economy is to work towards zero waste operations, in which we maintain, repair, upgrade, repurpose, reuse and recycle everything we use in a continual loop. At a time when climate change and sustainability are at the top of the agenda for all of us, the studies into the circular economy are crucial to forging sustainable and responsible working solutions in the building conversation and construction sector.

GCHT are therefore delighted to present this exclusive CPD lecture by two leading experts, Katie Carter and Roger Curtis from HES; Katie will provide an overview of the circular economy, followed by a look into some case studies with Roger.

This event is presented as part of our “GCHT Conservation and Climate Change” series.

Katie Carter works in Historic Environment Scotland’s Climate Change Team as the Circular Economy Project Officer. Her main work areas are waste reduction, sustainable procurement, resource efficiency, litter prevention and encouraging innovation. She is also involved in contributing to a wider understanding of how the historic environment is already inherently circular, how it can integrate circular principals more widely and support systems change, and how it can contribute to Climate Change targets.

Roger Curtis is a Chartered Building Surveyor with a background in construction work on historic and traditional buildings, and started work in construction with a building conservation contractor in central Scotland. He joined Historic Environment Scotland in 2006, and his work includes trials and demonstration work relating to energy efficiency in older buildings, climate change adaptation, the use and specification of traditional materials and emergency repair.
