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.

£15 per person / £10 for students.



All sessions are recognised by the Institute of Historic Building Conservation (IHBC) as being capable of contributing to the obligatory CPD requirements of Full Members (see www.ihbc.org.uk)
