A Stirling Approach to Sustainability: Retrofitting, Renovating and Reducing Energy in Historic Sites

June 3, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


An exciting opportunity to see the retrofit and energy efficiency measures at the spectacular 12th Century Stirling Castle plus a behind-the-scenes tour of the restoration of the derelict Engine Shed, Scotland’s first dedicated building conservation centre, which will showcase sustainable approaches to construction.

• A focus on the challenges of retrofitting heritage buildings, best practice and lessons learnt
• Insight on how to embed sustainability within a capital renovation project
• A tour of the new technologies in place at Stirling Castle and Argyll’s lodgings, a 17th Century townhouse
• Tour of the Engine Shed renovation project, a former railway building being transformed into a world-leading research and learning hub for building conservation – sustainability is being incorporated into the design throughout
• Lunch, refreshments and plenty of time for networking
