Principles and Best Practice for Traditional and Historic Buildings

Whether you are starting out in a buildings related career, looking to refresh your conservation knowledge, encounter historic buildings as part of your work portfolio, or have limited knowledge of the best conservation practice to employ on a project involving historic buildings, this is the CPD programme for you.

Traditional and historic buildings are an integral part of Perth and Kinross's built environment with many of its population centres, such as Perth, celebrated for their rich historic character. Whilst valued, historic buildings are often considered difficult to maintain, expensive to repair and their traditional methods of construction complicated to refurbish and align with modern building regulations. This CPD series offers key information to help you unlock their potential.
