He was appointed architect to the Iona Cathedral Trustees with responsibility for the maintenance, repair and conservation of all Early Christian and medieval buildings, monuments and artefacts within the Abbey and Nunnery precincts; his conservation work in the Abbey Church was awarded a European Architectural Heritage Award in 1995. John’s experience on Iona, working closely with archaeologists, material scientist, conservators, artists-craftspeople, historians and ecologists led to a period writing and contributing to many conservation management plans for places such as Wester Kittochside, Newhailes House, Princess Street Gardens, Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons. The repair and maintenance of traditional and historic buildings and their sensitive adaptation for new uses and climate change continues to be a significant part of John’s work which has included the Steiner Academy, Hereford, shortlisted for a RIBA design award in 2012 and guidance on the ongoing repair and maintenance of churches, estate buildings, houses and tenements across Scotland.
