CPD: The Circular Economy with Katie Carter and Roger Curtis, HES

Support us

Like many other charities, the coronavirus outbreak is having a major impact on our activities, threatening our crucial work to protect, repair and celebrate Glasgow’s rich built heritage. As a result, we expect to lose an important part of our income this year.

We are therefore asking that if you are able to support our conservation and outreach work,
please consider donating to the Trust.

Tuesday 27th October 2020 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

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.

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

£15 per person / £10 for students.

Thursday 27th August | 3:00pm-5:00pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

Join GCHT for this unique online workshop and learn how to create your own beautiful drawing of Langside Hall, taught by renowned Glasgow artist Frank Boyle.

You will have the opportunity to watch Frank draw the building from scratch, teaching participants how to capture its character and architectural details on paper.

This is perfect for beginners and experienced drawers alike – anyone with a genuine love of Glasgow’s architecture. All you need is a paper and pencil, however feel free to get creative and work in any medium you like!

Langside Hall is a Category A-Listed building located in Shawlands. It was originally built for the National Bank of Scotland in 1847 and designed by John Gibson. It was first located in Queen Street before being moved brick by brick to its current location on Langside Avenue in 1902. GCHT recently awarded a Development Grant of £5,000 to the Langside Halls Trust.

 Frank Boyle  is a Glasgow-based artist and cartoonist. He drew a daily cartoon  for the Edinburgh Evening News between 1999 and 2015 and won Cartoonist of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards in 2003 and 2006. His work has also appeared in the Herald, Scotland on Sunday and Sunday Post.

In addition to his cartoons, Frank also  paints buildings  and cityscapes in Glasgow and elsewhere, reflecting his lifelong interest in architecture.

Original, historic glass lends character to many buildings and can also influence the appearance of entire streetscapes. But what is the difference between plate glass, sheet glass and drawn glass? How was it made? How authentic are bullseye panes and were they really used in the past? What did the Georgians do on the other side of their obscured glass?

Join Conservation Consultant Darren McLean for this online technical CPD to discuss these questions and debunk some common myths about traditional and historic glass.

This CPD will be delivered by David Wiggins Ph.D., Principal Engineer with Curtins.

Have you ever lived in a building without a floor?

Join GCHT and conservation consultant Darren McLean for a fascinating evening lecture, which will describe the various types of historic flooring originally used, the materials they were made from, causes of deterioration, and their maintenance and repair. With stunning pictures, case studies and expert knowledge from Darren, its an event not to be missed by conservation enthusiasts!

FREE, booking required.
