Case Study On-going
Date added: 04/07/2017

This case study explains how Historic Environment Scotland is pioneering work to up-skill the public and professionals so Scotland is better able to adapt and maintain its traditional buildings from the impacts of climate change.

Changes in the climate, such as increased severe weather events, are causing problems for many of Scotland’s traditional buildings. These problems are being made worse by poor maintenance. Historic Environment Scotland (HES) are actively undertaking and enabling a range of activities and research to improve the quality and availability of skills and knowledge across the sector and beyond to future proof the historic environment.
