About this Event

For our second seminar of 2024 we will be focussing on investigations and adapting of existing buildings. This will comprise a series of presentation looking at the early investigations, material testing, design decisions,conservation considerations, temporary works and construction approach when adapting existing buildings.

The seminar will be held at the Engine Shed in Stirling where there will be an opportunity to look around the building which is Historic Environment Scotland’s dedicated building conservation centre. As a hub of digital innovation and heritage science, it is home to specialist labs.

The seminar will cover a good range of existing building and conservation themed topics and will provide useful CPD for engineers at various stages of their careers from new graduates, those working towards chartered membership and for our more experienced members looking to stay abreast of current best practice.

The following topics will be covered:

· Material investigations, sampling and testing of buildings

· Collaborative design and engineering in conservation and re-use projects

· Existing building / Conservation engineering considerations

· Existing building / Conservation contractors considerations

· Engine Shed project case study presentation


Speakers include: Ryan Wallace (Empirical), John Brown (Page \ Park Architects), MJ O’Shaughnessy (Will Rudd), Stuart Burgess (Tilbury Douglas) and Jonny Narro (Narro)

All welcome • Registration required • 4 hours CPD

Programme - please note we will start promptly at 11.45am.


11.00 Registration & tea/coffee on arrival.
