CPD: The Sustainable Renovation Guide with Chris Morgan

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 11th November 2020 | 12.30-1.30pm | GCHT Zoom Meeting

The ‘Sustainable Renovation Guide’, created by Chris Morgan in association with SEDA and The Pebble Trust, describes ten ways in which those involved in the retrofit and renovation of Scotland’s homes can improve upon current practice, achieving better energy performance while simultaneously gaining wider sustainability benefits.

GCHT is delighted to collaborate with Chris to present this CPD, based upon the ‘Sustainable Renovation Guide,’ which will be of interest to anyone working with existing buildings, from those working in government, housing associations and councils, as well as architects, surveyors, builders and those wanting to refurbish their own homes. This CPD will include detailed information and drawings of exactly how parts of a building can be upgraded along with a commentary on practical issues to look out for, and why our guidance differs from most conventional wisdom on the subject.

We will take a look at a more balanced approach that values energy efficiency equally with the health of occupants and the long-term durability of buildings, and that considers the reality of buildings as built, rather than the theoretical models which tend to inform policy and practice. We look at how we can better engage with people, and learn from established conservation practice to help with the practicalities of working with existing buildings.

This event is presented as part of our “GCHT Conservation and Climate Change” series.

Chris Morgan is an architect and a Director at John Gilbert Architects with 30 years’ experience in ecological design and sustainable development. He has maintained a range of experience from masterplanning and energy infrastructure, through to award-winning and innovative architecture, research and teaching.

Heritage + Health

Heritage plaques can be a visible and effective way of connecting past and present in our towns and cities.  They give information about the ordinary and unknown heritage  of the city.
