CPD: Interior Language and Redevelopment of Paisley Town Hall

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.

Wednesday 18th August 2021 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

Paisley has seen the regeneration of several key buildings in recent years, and one of the most prominent projects has been the redevelopment of Paisley Town Hall. Architect Steven Coulson from Holmes Miller has done extensive work on understanding the interior language of the building to understand the historic materials and geometry within the building to inform the new material selection for the refurbishment.

Join us for this CPD, delivered by Steven Coulson, which explores the process of the refurbishment, including the design team’s research and insight into their methodology for renovating this historic building. 

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

£15 per person / £10 for students.

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

We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Presented in partnership with Renfrewshire Council, which is delivering major long term investment in its heritage assets and cultural infrastructure.

 

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)
