CPD: Conservation Planning

Wednesday 13th March 2019 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

Scotland has a diverse historic built environment be that buildings, archaeological sites, designed landscapes or ancients monuments. This built heritage needs to be responsibly managed and maintained. Utilising his vast experience as a Chartered Building Surveyor and Heritage Consultant, Ian Mitchell Davidson will provide best practice for preparing and implementing Conservation Plans and Heritage Impact Assessments for developments within historically sensitive places.

Preparing such documents encourages those with the responsibility to assess how and why the built heritage is significant and how it should be managed in order to conserve that cultural significance. Currently developing a major HLF Conservation Plan and HES Grant, Ian can offer specialist advice on this Conservation Planning topic. 

Ian Mitchell Davidson is a specialist in heritage conservation who worked for the National Trust for Scotland for over three decades. He is a Visiting Professor at Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen and a Heritage Consultant to the trustees of Braemar Castle. He is a well-known authority on building conservation and has delivered lectures in the United States, Australia, the then USSR, Estonia, Latvia and elsewhere around the world.

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

CPD: Surveying and Repairing Traditional Brickwork

Wednesday 30th January 2019 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

The manufacture and widespread use of brick began in the late 18th century with the onset of the the Industrial Revolution. Throughout the 19th century, Scotland had an extensive brick industry demonstrated by the hundreds of brickworks that were in operation. The use of brick as a construction material ranged from terraced cottages and large industrial complexes to uses less noticeable such as backing material for ashlar stonework and for the construction of vaulting.

Drawing upon his PhD entitled ‘The Technical Development of Scottish Brickwork, 1700-1900’, Dr Moses Jenkins will highlight the significant differences between Scottish craft practice and the rest of Britain. Through surveying techniques he will identify causes of deterioration (water ingress, salts, structural faults and vegetation) and highlight means of repair and maintenance through replacement of bricks, cleaning and repointing. 

Dr Moses Jenkins is Senior Technical Officer with the Technical Research team at Historic Environment Scotland. He studied history at Stirling and Glasgow universities and recently completed a PhD in traditional brickwork at Dundee University.

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

CPD: Developing Lime Specifications for Traditional Buildings

Wednesday 9th May 2018 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

Lime mortar has been used with stone since Roman times for building in Scotland. Many of Scotland’s traditional buildings were constructed and finished using lime mortars, for bedding, pointing, harling and renders. In this lunchtime CPD session Dr William Napier will explore how the characteristics of lime need to be understood when undertaking conservation projects

Dr William Napier is a Chartered Building Surveyor, Accredited in Conservation, with thirty years’ experience in applying, specifying and reporting on lime based finishes. He began his career with a traditional decorative plastering apprenticeship with L. Grandison and Son in Peebles, before training as a building surveyor and completing a two-year post-graduate conservation fellowship with Historic Scotland.  He is now a Director with Adams Napier Partnership, a Chartered Building Surveying Practice specialising in building conservation, research and training.

CPD: Stone Matching

Wednesday 7th March 2018 | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

Throughout Scotland there is a wealth of traditional buildings constructed of stone. When the time comes to repair and replace stonework, a detailed knowledge of the chemical, physical and mineralogical properties of the existing stone is required. Only with that understanding can we select compatible materials to replace it with. This CPD session will explore why stone matching is required, the difficulties of stone replacement in the UK and what services are available, as well as the petrographic stone matching procedures, its requirements, time restraints and what the technician undertaking the test actually does.

Dr Callum Graham is a Laboratory Scientist with the Conservation Science team at Historic Environment Scotland’s new conservation hub, the Engine Shed in Stirling. Callum is involved in undertaking on-site and laboratory based analysis of traditional building materials, and has contributed to their new building conservation postgraduate diploma by teaching on the stone and lime mortar modules.
