Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements

Traditional and historical buildings are an integral part of the environment in which we live and work, and are widely valued for their character, form and local distinctiveness. However, they are often considered expensive to run and difficult to maintain. This need not be the case. With regular maintenance and repair, the right skills and materials we can all play a role in ensuring that these older buildings continue to contribute to the fabric and amenity of Scotland’s built environment.

Glasgow City Heritage Trust in collaboration with UnderOneRoof invite you to become a “tenement detective” using our Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements guide, which covers maintenance repairs and shared responsibilities for the tenement owners of Glasgow.
