In this CPD, attendees will get to hear from Paul Barham of Barham Glen Architects about the recent works that have been done to save the building and convert it into housing. 

He will discuss the evolution of the project and the developer’s vision for the site, and how the immediate repair priorities were identified. He will also look at issues such as fire strategy, commercial use of the ground floor, and adapting flat designs to the building’s layout, all while ensuring the long-term sustainability of the redevelopment. 

This event will be held both in-person at our office on 54 Bell Street, Glasgow (with light lunch provided) and streamed online via Zoom. Please pick the appropriate ticket option for you below.

Tuesday 19th March | 12:30 – 2:00pm | Online via Zoom and In-Person at GCHT’s office on 54 Bell Street, Glasgow, G1 1LQ 

The importance of materials analysis in conservation is well established, and understanding the composition and microstructure of materials, like stone and mortar, allows us to make informed decisions around the sympathetic repair and restoration of our built heritage, whilst also avoiding unnecessary damage arising from the use of incompatible materials.

This CPD will cover sampling methodology and introduce the types of analysis used and what they can tell us, including petrography, XRD and wet chemistry, as well as highlighting how analysis informs repair specifications.

The session will be lead by Dr Katie Strang, a geologist and materials analyst, and Mitchell Fotheringham, a building surveyor. They both work for the Scottish Lime Centre, which aims to promote and encourage the appropriate repair of traditional buildings, and to conserve and develop the associated building traditions, crafts and skills through training and education.

This event will be held both in-person at our office on 54 Bell Street, Glasgow (with light lunch provided) and streamed online via Zoom. Please pick the appropriate ticket option for you below.

**Sold Out** CPD: Showcasing Stone Carving

An ornately carved stone cross that sits on the top of Miller Hall, a Category A listed church in Dennistoun.

Monday 9th October | 10am – 12 noon | On site at Conservation Masonry, 942-944 South Street, Whiteinch, Glasgow, G14 0AR

This event provides an opportunity to see the craft of stone carving in action, as you’ll see the carving of a new Arts & Crafts influenced stone cross for the apex of the roof at Miller Hall.  A Category A-listed historic church in Dennistoun, designed by celebrated architect James Miller, the building was previously known as St Andrew’s East Church and was converted into flats in the early 2000s.

The historic cross is beginning to disintegrate and can’t be left in place due to the risk of pieces of stone falling. It is too important a feature to take away, so the decision was taken to create a replica cut from a new piece of stone.

We will explain the background to the current conservation project, supported by Glasgow City Heritage Trust, and will see the historic stone cross which has been carefully removed from the church. Attendees will learn the various stages of carving involved, from processing a sandstone block, setting out, initial shaping and hand chiselling the stone down to the finished article, including cutting all the exquisite relief detail.

PPE can be provided if necessary, however it would be helpful if attendees could bring their own hard hats, safety eyewear and hi-viz vests/jackets if they can.

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

Spaces are limited to 8 people, booking essential.

Wednesday 25th May 2022 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

Historic buildings and heritage spaces make up a major part of our housing, offices, commercial and recreations spaces. Unfortunately, a lot of these buildings are inaccessible to disabled people, creating barriers to housing, employment, and the enjoyment and appreciation of heritage, culture and art.

What can we do to create spaces that are truly accessible and inclusive of everyone? What makes a space and experience accessible and what are the steps to achieve this status?

In this CPD, Emily Yates, Head of Accessibility and Inclusive Design at Mima, will discuss disability and the historic built environment, regulations for accessible buildings, what sort of adjustments might be needed in a historic building, and how to make adjustments that don’t cause hardship to the user or exclude them.

A great believer in inclusive end-to end experiences that benefit both the user and staff member, Emily has experience of auditing transport networks (Rio 2016 and Northern Rail), and football stadiums (Watford, Liverpool, West Ham). She has also delivered disability awareness training sessions (Dubai Expo 2020), digital access audits and created inclusive policies and standards for organisations to improve their internal and external accessibility (Heathrow Airport, National Railway Museum).

The CPD will be recorded and available to all ticket holders after the event.
