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

Hypostyle Architects and the ESPC have teamed up 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 five excellent speakers who will each talk for around 10 minutes:

Jo Parry, Conservation Architect, Hypostyle Architects
Welcome and the importance of repair to properties and consequences if they are neglected.

Colin McCorquodale, NFRC (National federation of roofing contractors)
Expert in roof slating practices and different roofing options should a repair be required.

Graeme Hadden, SFGB (Stone Federation)
Discover ways to avoid stone deterioration and best practice stone matching.

Dorothy Hoskins, Historic Scotland
Advice on appropriate repair and maintenance of your building and the guides available to help homeowners.

Simon Roberts, Scottish Government Housing stock quality team
Fundamental information on the 'tenement act' encouraging owners to get together, form stair groups and repair/maintain their property

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.

Places are limited so book fast to make sure your home is protected over the winter!
