From Industry to Heritage: An Engineer's perspective

A talk by Nicola Grahamslaw, Ship's Conservation Engineer, S.S. Great Britain

What do a Victorian Steamship and a Nuclear Reactor have in common? In this talk Nicola Grahamslaw will explore how ideas and experience from across a variety of engineering disciplines can be applied to the conservation of industrial heritage, using the UK's Advanced gas-cooled reactor (AGR) fleet and Brunel's 175-year-old iron steamship as a case study. She will share her experience transitioning from industry into heritage, and the insight gained from her recent work understanding and modifying climate control systems to improve their effectiveness and reduce carbon footprint.

Nicola is a chartered mechanical engineer, working as a design analyst and project engineer in the aerospace and nuclear power industries prior to her recent move into the heritage sector. In 2018, she was appointed to the newly created "Ship's Conservation Engineer" post at the SS Great Britain in Bristol. Here, she is reviewing the effectiveness of the ship's current conservation strategy, put in place in 2005, and planning for the future care of this unique object.
