Glasgow’s Buildings at Risk

© Historic Environment Scotland

Thursday, 31st October | 12.30-1.30pm | 54 Bell Street, Glasgow

Glasgow currently has around 130 historic buildings listed on the Buildings at Risk Register, of which half have been on it for 11 years or longer. 

Niall Murphy will delve into why Glasgow has so many buildings on the Register, and will explore what GCHT has been doing to address the problem including: case studies of meanwhile uses; how we have tried to get buildings off the Register and back into use; or tried to set them on the path to a sustainable future. 

Niall Murphy is Deputy Director of GCHT and the Chair of the Govanhill Baths Building Preservation Trust, which is working toward the removal of Govanhill Baths from the Buildings at Risk Register and its sustainable re-use as a health and wellbeing centre.
