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.

This 6 session programme of CPD has been put together specifically with architects, surveyors, building standards, planning, trades and construction professionals in mind, offering comprehensive introductions with practical examples on a range of essential topics.

Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust

At Perth and Kinross Heritage Trust, our aim is to conserve and promote archaeology and architectural heritage for the benefit of residents, visitors and future generations. We endeavour to achieve these objectives through the development and execution of projects, the administration of grants, the provision of information and advice, and through a programme of outreach events and publications.


Conserving our shared heritage is important for many reasons: maintaining 'sense of place', providing a resource for learning and education for local communities, and as a driver for sustainable economic development through events and destinations for visitors and tourists. We believe the rich physical heritage of Perth and Kinross, in the form of archaeological remains and historic buildings and landscapes, should be enjoyed by everyone, and we aim to facilitate this through our outreach events and projects. PKHT is a registered Scottish Charity (No. SC003139).
