Housing Walk & Talk Event: Dunninald Estate, Montrose
Scottish Land & Estates, in partnership with Dunninald Estate and @rchitects Scotland invites SLE Members to attend this knowledge transfer and information event aimed at landowners, property managers and built heritage professionals.
The development of the redundant B Listed steading block will ultimately result in its conversion to form 7 dwellings. The first phase is currently coming to an end and attendees will have the unique opportunity to view the steading in various stages of development from empty and underused units through to finished property.
Hosted by Mary Stansfeld (Dunninald Estate) and Paul Fretwell (@rchitects Scotland) this informal ‘Walk & Talk’ event is an opportunity to speak with those directly involved in the conversion of this listed building to view firsthand the processes and techniques that are being deployed to ensure this building is fit for modern living.
A key element of this event is to learn of the significance of master planning in relation to the conversion of a whole steading/ stable block/ courtyard.
This unique event will allow interested parties to come together in an informal setting to meet, network and learn from each other in a practical way.
In attendance will be representatives of the client, architect, contractor and Historic Environment Scotland.
As this event will take place mostly outdoors please bring suitable footwear and clothing.
Discussion topics will include:
- the importance of master planning
- reinstating redundant buildings
- historic building and modern living
- navigating the planning process and the use of appropriate materials
- myth busting listed buildings
- the role of the Architect (from concept to construction)
- energy efficiency and heating
This event is free of charge, but places are limited, and booking is essential. To register your interest please e-mail Scott Petrie, Regional Support Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
