About the event

Hypostyle Architects has worked with homeowners for many years providing a professional service to help them repair and maintain their properties.  

ESPC has teamed up with Hypostyle to host a Property Maintenance Event to provide homeowners with the tools required to assess their building's condition, and demonstrate how to carry out repairs and ensure correct maintenance of their property.  This means you don't have to worry about any sudden large bills dues to degrading buildings.


We have excellent speakers who will each talk for around 10 minutes:

  • Jo Parry, Conservation Architect, Hypostyle Architects: Learn about the importance of repairing properties and advice on how to get started.
  • Fiona McDonald, Edinburgh World Heritage: The grant aided projects available within the EWH site.
  • Colin McCorquodale, NFRC: Advice on best roof repair practice.
  • Alex Stark, Stone Federation: Identifying defective stonework and the process of its repair/replacement.
  • Dorothy Hoskins, Historic Scotland: Advice on appropriate repair and maintenance, covering all key areas of your building and the HS Inform guides available to help.
  • Simon Roberts, Scottish Government: Fundamental information on the Tenement Act, encouraging owners to work together with their neighbours.

After the speakers

Mingle and talk to the experts who can answer any of your specific questions or concerns, plus pick up information packs.  In addition Edinburgh World Heritage will be there on the night who can provide details regarding any funding available for the preservation of selected properties in and around Edinburgh.

Perhaps you fancy learning more about building maintenance so that you can spot any potential work before it gets worse.
